Interactive Notifications in Ionic (from lock screen)

Looking to build a hybrid app to take advantage of the interactive nature of notifcations (starting in IOS 8, but now with new functionality in iOS 10. Basically, I want the user to people to swipe left on the notification from the home screen, and then use one of a few action buttons without having to fully open the app.

I saw that earlier this year there were some people working on it, but the latest messages seem to imply that it is no longer working. See here

Would appreciate any help you guys might have. Thanks!
