This project is solving the Transient Watch – Daily News on Active Neutron Stars and Black Holes on Your Mobile Phone challenge. Description
We show the latest news handling multiple RSS feeds and raw web sites. The backend polls all sources, aggregates them and delivers as a single JSON feed, which then parsed and shown by the mobile app. For each new item in the feed a push notification is sent to a mobile phone to immediately notify an user.
The backend is implemented as Go application on IBM Bluemix platform using Mobile Push service. The app itself is implemented using React Native and Objective-C native code.
On the backend we'd like to add support of protocols like VOEvent. iOS app must be polished and Android app will be developed.
