Web Push or FCM integration - Zeitgeist - 12-29-2018

Push notifications seems like a no brainer in 2018 but I've have yet to find any way to get this implemented on mybb forum. Push notification is a necessary functionality for the future and other forum software like vBulletin, Xenforo, and even PHPBB have practical solutions and integration for push notifications. There are two feasible route for implementing  practical push notifications.

1. Through Push API https://caniuse.com/#feat=push-api where everything would be handled on the server

2. Integrating a free service such as FCM(Firebase Cloud Message) to deliver notifications over a network. If integrated user would have to set up a google firebase accont a get credential to input in mybb forum. I believe either Xenforo or VBulletin has used this sort of integration as a solution for push notifications
