This plugin allows straightforward integration of d'Anthès within Redmine to display nice notifications in Growl style.

It relies on :


Before switching to d'Anthès and write this plugin, I used Redmine Pusher Notifications which does exactly the same job... with the drawback that it depends on Pusher service to work (a really nice messaging solution by the way).

With Redmine d'Anthès, this external dependency is removed so you can use async notifications with no limits ! :)



Assuming that you have Redmine installed :

## Before install the plugin, stop Redmine!

# Switch user
root# su - redmine

# First git clone Bootstrap Kit
redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT/plugins
redmine$ git clone
redmine$ cd redmine_bootstrap_kit/
redmine$ git checkout 0.2.3

# Then Redmine d'Anthes plugin
redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT/plugins
redmine$ git clone
redmine$ cd redmine_danthes/
redmine$ git checkout 1.0.0

# Copy Danthes config file to Redmine config dir
redmine$ cp config/danthes*.yml ../../config/

# Copy `````` Rack script to Redmine root dir
redmine$ cp ../../

# Install gems
redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT/
redmine$ bundle install --without development test

## After install the plugin, start Redmine!


You must configure d'Anthès by editing <redmine root>/config/danthes.yml file.

You will have to set a secret to secure your connection with Faye and the Redmine URL (for instance

You must also configure your webserver to redirect Faye requests :

Nginx config :

Add this in server section :

location /faye {
  access_log   /data/logs/nginx/faye.access.log;
  error_log    /data/logs/nginx/faye.error.log;


  proxy_http_version 1.1;

  proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header Connection $connection_upgrade;

  proxy_set_header X-Real-IP  $remote_addr;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
  proxy_set_header Host $http_host;

  gzip off;
  expires off;

  chunked_transfer_encoding off;
  proxy_buffering           off;
  proxy_cache               off;
  proxy_redirect            off;
  proxy_send_timeout        850000;
  proxy_read_timeout        850000;
  proxy_connect_timeout     850000;

Add this outside of server section :

map $http_upgrade $connection_upgrade {
  default upgrade;
  ''      close;

Start d'Anthès/Faye!

root# su - redmine
redmine$ cd REDMINE_ROOT
redmine$ rackup -s thin -E production

You're done!

Now you may need to add your own notifications channels and events, see below!


If you want to integrate Faye async notifications in your plugin you need to register your own channels and events in your init.rb file : each channel can have many events. It may also have an optional target parameter which can be a string or a Proc.

## This must be OUTSIDE of the Redmine::Plugin.register block

AsyncNotifications.register_channel :channel_test do
  target { User.current.login }
  event  :event1
  event  :event2
  event  :event3

AsyncNotifications.register_channel :broadcast do
  target 'broadcast'
  event  :event1
  event  :event2
  event  :event3

The rest is handled by the plugin ;)

To check that it's working go in Redmine and load any page. Then edit with Firebug. At the bottom you should have something like that :

<div data-url="/my/notifications" id="notifications" style="display: none;">
  <script type="text/javascript">
    if (typeof Danthes != 'undefined') { Danthes.sign({"server":"","timestamp":1427061870776,"channel":"/channel_test/admin","signature":"8416c90289dbdbd35130da4018d376b5469c1793"}) }
  $(document).ready(function() { setAsyncNotifications(); });

You should also see connections to Faye and check errors if any.

Note that if your browser or your connection don't support WebSockets it will fallback to long-polling mode automatically.
