The following snippet is intended to create a notification that also triggers a device vibration; a simple options object is created, and then the notification is fired using the Notification() constructor.

var options = {
  body: 'Do you like my body?',
  vibrate: [200, 100, 200]

var n = new Notification('Test notification',options);

n.vibrate // should return [200,100,200]
