Ionic push + firebase


How would I go about making it possible to serve push notifications with ionic from firebase? would i use the firebase queue or can ionic push listen for updates in the background when the user is not actively connected to firebase? is it possible to use ionic push without setting up a node server or using zapier which is an additional cost.


I would use firebase queue with a node server


any other way to avoid setting up a node server with heroku and to have firebase queue talk directly with ionic push?


are there any sample scripts of how to go about connecting the two with a node worker?
