Nativescript Batch plugin

Welcome to Batch's Nativescript Plugin!
Batch is a fully fledged mobile engagement platform to execute CRM tactics over iOS, Android & mobile websites.
The purpose of this plugin is to manage Push notifications, in-app messages and more.., for Android and IOS.
This repository contains the plugin's source code and a demo application.

This plugin is an updated fork from nativescript-batch-notifications



yarn ns8-batch-notifications
npm i ns8-batch-notifications

Prerequisites / Requirements

First of all, you must create a batch account;
Then a configuration is required for each platform;
This process is explained through simple steps in batch official documentation.
IOS setup
Android setup
When you add your Firebase android project, download the google-services.json which you'll add to your NativeScript project at app/App_Resources/Android/google-services.json

For a quick start using the demo app :

  • Override the bundle id in package.json in the demo directory
  • Add the API keys with the ones generated by your batch account in the .env file

Android initialization

We must override the OnCreate method.
In order to do so, change the application name value in the AndroidManifest from com.tns.NativeScriptApplication to something like org.myApp.Application.
Then, in the root dir, create a typescript file named : 'application.android.ts' and enter the bellow code.

const firebase = require('@nativescript/firebase');
// @ts-ignore
import { BatchNS } from 'nativescript-batch-notifications';

class Application extends android.app.Application {
public onCreate(): void {
const batch = new BatchNS(process.env.BASH_ANDROID_KEY);

You also must add the following in your webpack.config.js.

webpack.chainWebpack(config => {
if (webpack.Utils.platform.getPlatformName() === 'android') {
// make sure the path to the applicatioon.android.(js|ts)
// is relative to the webpack.config.js
// you may need to use `./app/application.android if
// your app source is located inside the ./app folder.

IOS initialization

We must setup a custom delegate; Override the app.ts in the root dir with the bellow code:

import { Application, isIOS } from "@nativescript/core";
// @ts-ignore
import { BatchNS } from "nativescript-batch-notifications";

if (isIOS) {
class MyDelegate extends UIResponder implements UIApplicationDelegate {
public static ObjCProtocols = [UIApplicationDelegate];

applicationDidFinishLaunchingWithOptions(application: UIApplication, launchOptions: NSDictionary<any, any>): boolean {
new BatchNS(process.env.BATCH_IOS_KEY, false);

return true;

Application.ios.delegate = MyDelegate;

Important notes !!

  • (Android) In this plugin version we assume that the nativescript firebase plugin is installed; This will be fixed in upcoming releases.
  • (IOS) When generating the xcode project, you MUST toggle 'Push Notifications' in the capabilities tab.
