GetStream's inapp inbox notification center lackluster? SuprSend's pre-built SDK offers a feature-rich alternative for developers, with real-time updates, rich notifications & more. The best app inbox alternative.

While GetStream offers a robust suite of tools for building chat functionalities, its capabilities for in-app notification centers are limited.

SuprSend emerges as a powerful alternative, providing a pre-built notification center specifically designed for seamless integration within your application.

GetStream vs. SuprSend: Notification Center Showdown

Here's a breakdown of key considerations when choosing between GetStream and SuprSend for your in-app notification needs:

  • Architectural Approach: GetStream offers a headless API approach, empowering developers with building blocks to construct custom notification centers. SuprSend provides a pre-built notification center SDK, simplifying integration and reducing development overhead. SuprSend also supports headless approach to build customisable and native inapp notification center experience just like inapp notifications.
  • Customization: GetStream offers greater flexibility for tailoring notification center functionalities through code. However, this requires significant development expertise. SuprSend provides a balance between customization and ease of use, allowing for configuration through a well-documented API and a user-friendly interface for managing notification settings.
  • Advanced Features: Both GetStream and SuprSend can handle basic notification functionalities like message delivery and display. However, SuprSend might offer additional features crucial for a comprehensive notification center, such as:

    • Notification Persistence: SuprSend allows persistent storage of notifications for later retrieval, even if the app is closed. GetStream's approach may require developers to build persistence mechanisms.
    • Rich Notification Content: SuprSend supports rich media content like images, videos, and custom layouts within notifications, enhancing engagement. GetStream might necessitate additional libraries or development effort for such features.
    • Advanced Targeting & Segmentation: SuprSend empowers developers to target specific user groups and segments with tailored notifications based on user attributes or behavior. GetStream's targeting capabilities might be more limited.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
