For self-hosters only
If you use a public push server, this page doesn’t apply to you. This page contains information to setup a component that can be used by people self-hosting their push server.
Gateways are ways to convert the application server format of notifications to the UnifiedPush format of notifications.
Right now, the only gateway that exists is for the Matrix protocol.
App developers should host default gateways (otherwise it’ll be impossible to use your app with a public push server), however for some gateways, the user can host their own. This is called Gateway Discovery.
Matrix homeservers don’t directly support UnifiedPush (yet). This means that a gateway is needed.
All Matrix applications have defined a default gateway that will forward notifications to your push server. You can use your own Matrix gateway instead if you host your push server yourself and also want to host the gateway yourself.

Common-Proxies is a set of rewrite proxies and push gateways for UnifiedPush. It can be used as a matrix gateway. If needed, it supports forwarding to any public remote URL with defense against requests to internal networks.
Information on setup is in the documentation for the Common-Proxies
