Wondering how reliant the Meshtastic app will be without Google APIs, Firebase, whatever.
Thought: In a world of possible “cyber pandemics”, the internet/power may go down. I understand that push notifications work by being routed through Google servers. No internet, no push. Am I right?
Further to this; no GAPPs, no Google on Lineage OS, no push notifications; am I right?
I’m wondering if development on this project is keeping the above in mind?
Will Push Notifications, or the app in general, work without Google --whether we use a de-googled phone, or we have an internet outage, or both?
Random add-on question? Have you looked at the Pirate Box box project (Raspberry Pi). It’s now unsupported, but huge media and thriving community. Some kind of compatibility would be neato.
Above all, blown away by this project. Well done. I have 10 nodes currently and I’m just waiting on an Android phone to come in the mail. Been waiting a month. It’s keeling meeeee.
I plan to blanket my small city with access to Meshtastic when I get it all together.
