Novu

Overview

The open-source notification infrastructure for developers

Building a notification system shouldn't be hard. With Novu, our goal is to simplify notifications and provide developers with the tools to create meaningful communication between the system and its users. Add a real-time notification center to your app deployed on Vercel, or send multi-channel notifications with a single API call.

    to: [{
      subscriberId: '<UNIQUE_IDENTIFIER>',
