🚀 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: '[email protected]',
      firstName: 'John',
      lastName: 'Doe',
  payload: {
    name: 'Hello World',
    organization: {
      logo: '',

Embeddable Notification Center

Using the Novu API and admin panel, you can easily add a real-time notification center to your web app without building it yourself. You can use our React / Vue / Angular component or an iframe embed.
