🚀 Getting Started

We are excited to launch the complete Novu API and admin panel. Want to give it a test before the official release? here is how:

npx novu init

After setting up your account using the cloud or docker version you can trigger the API using the @novu/node package.

npm install @novu/node
import { Novu } from '@novu/node';

const novu = new Novu(process.env.NOVU_API_KEY);

await novu.trigger('<TRIGGER_NAME>',
    to: {
      subscriberId: '<UNIQUE_IDENTIFIER>',
      email: '',
      firstName: 'John',
      lastName: 'Doe',
    payload: {
      name: "Hello World",
      organization: {
        logo: '',

Embeddable notification center

Using the Novu API and admin panel you can easily add real-time notification center to your web-app without the hassle of building it yourself. You can use our React component or an iframe embed if you are not using React.
