Ruby throws SSL Certificate error


Been three days since I am struggling with this. I was trying to implement PushPlugin into my Ionic cordova project. Everytime I run ruby pushGCM.rb, I get the following SSL certificate error

I have been using PushPlugin github repo for a sample push notification example using ionic cordova framework. Everytime I call

ruby pushGCM.rb, I get the following error

C:\NewP\plugins\com.phonegap.plugins.PushPlugin\Example\server>ruby pushGCM.rb

I have checked the path, installed what not in my system, most posts said rvm is the solution but I cant get to work with this on Windows.



sounds like a real problem, but I don’t think it is related to Ionic.
Sounds more like a problem for either the server that sends the pushes or Cordova, which receives the notifications.

Maby looking for this error in relation to the plugin will yield a bigger success. And maby looking at implementing SSL on the local server could help aswell.

Good luck!


Thanks for stopping by. Yeah I did research on the issue. Its not specific to Ionic.Its more of a ruby issue. I have installed pik, ruby, gem, cygwin what not. But Cannot get out of this error. I have even installed a proxy bypass software just to ensure my company proxy isnt allowing the certification of SSL. But all seem to be vain.
