Check out firechat by firebase, thats would be a good reference.

I need to implement one to one chat and one to many chat, notifications should be sent to other users when they get message

check out Firechat by firebase. There is a method for one to one chat there. You can always pick out the code and reuse for your project.

FireChat has all the necessary events to build a nice chat application.
However, the bad thing is, it has a JQuery Dependency.

In an Ionic application, I would like to have my own UI using Ionic Directives and I do not want to load the heavy JQuery file which is not used in my views.

That can effect the performance (start up time) of the application.

What do you think?
