macOS App Setup

Instructions for adding OneSignal to your macOS app



Option 1: Mac Catalyst

If you built your app with Mac Catalyst, you can setup OneSignal's XCFramework SDK.

More details in this guide on our blog.

Option 2: API

OneSignal does not currently have a dedicated macOS SDK. However, OneSignal can be used to send notifications to macOS apps. Please refer to Apple's documentation to learn how to obtain a push token.

To register a macOS device, call our Create user endpoint with a subscription type of macOSPush to represent the macOS platform, and pass in the push token for the token parameter.

Updating User Events

With the Create user or Update user APIs you can set your own custom alias or external_id and update user data.

Send Messages

You can send push notifications using the OneSignal dashboard or Create notification API. More details, see Sending Push Messages.
