Say user a liked user b. I want to show this as a notification in the notification panel of user b when she logs in. She can also view her previous notifications (basically like facebook notification). This is not email notification or a success/warning type one time notification.

I want to know the right track to follow. Do I use django-notifications or django-messages-framework or push notifications? Where is the use of channels and web sockets in all of these?

My steps:

1) create a notification app

2) create a notification model (what fields do I put here if since django-notification already has actor, verb, action object and target fields?)

3) Do i have to create forms.py? How is the notification message getting passed?

4) What view do I put in views.py? (please give an example code)

If there is any example project that implemented the notification system please provide a link.
