All, Just a note to announce that Apnotic, a Ruby APNs HTTP/2 gem able to provide instant feedback, has now successfully been running in production for quite some time. You can find the code here: https://github.com/ostinelli/apnotic This gem can easily be used with connection pools and inside of Sidekiq / Rescue / ... workers, without the need for an additional dedicated process. Why another APN gem? If you have used the previous Apple Push Notification specifications you may have noticed that it was hard to know whether a Push Notification was successful or not. It was a common problem that has been reported multiple times. In addition, you had to run a separate Feedback service to retrieve the list of the device tokens that were no longer valid, and ensure to purge them from your systems. All of this is solved by using the HTTP-2 APN specifications. Every Push Notification you make returns a response stating if the Push was successful or, if not, which problems were encountered. This includes the case when invalid device tokens are used, hence making it unnecessary to have a separate Feedback service. If you'd like to provide some additional feedback I'd be happy to hear from you. Best, r.
