Has anybody experience with Gotify

To receive notifications on your phone most will use Firebase.
There is however an alternative called Gotify.
You can install your own Gotify server on a Raspberry Pi so no need for a third party service.

My question is:
Has anybody used Gotify. Set up their own server and then send notifications to Android.
Would be nice to get some aia file that shows how it works before re-inventing the wheel by myself.

For those interested here is the link:

Gotify is open source.


Most use Onesignal.

Yes but point is that I do not want to be depending on third party services.
Got bad experiences with that like:

  • IoTtweet just stopped working
  • IFTTT had many years webhooks as a free service and now suddenly must be paid.
  • Blynk had a free service for hobbyists and they shut that down. Just very limited use for hobbyists.

So I would like to run my own server.

You will be the first.

If you get it working, feel free to add it to our collection at

You should ask your question in their community or forum (whatever they have) .
I don't think you'll get an answer here.
