⭐️ Why Novu?

Building a notification system is complicated. At first, it seems like just sending an email, but in reality, it's just the beginning. Users today expect a multi-channel communication experience via email, SMS, push, chat, and other channels. An ever-growing list of providers is popping up daily, and notifications are spread around the code. Novu's goal is to simplify notifications and provide developers with the tools to create meaningful communication between the system and its users.

✨ Features

  • 🌈 Single API for all messaging providers (Email, SMS, Push, Chat)
  • 💅 Easily manage notifications over multiple channels
  • 🚀 Equipped with a CMS for advanced layouts and design management
  • 🛡 Built-in protection for missing variables (Coming Soon)
  • 📦 Easy to set up and integrate
  • 🛡 Debug and analyze multi-channel messages in a single dashboard
  • 📦 Embeddable notification center with real-time updates
  • 👨‍💻 Community driven

🚀 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 component or an iframe embed if you are not using React.
