# Usage

# Basic Usage

You can now use the channel in the via() method inside the Notification class.


namespace App\Notifications;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use NotificationChannels\BearyChat\BearyChatChannel;
use ElfSundae\BearyChat\Message;

class InvoicePaid extends Notification
    public function via($notifiable)
        return [BearyChatChannel::class];

    public function toBearyChat($notifiable)
        return (new Message)

You can also use a BearyChat Client to create the message for notification, and the client's message defaults will be used for creating this new Message instance.

public function toBearyChat($notifiable)
    return bearychat('admin')->text('New VIP has been paid!');

# Routing Notifications

To route BearyChat notifications to the proper Robot, define a routeNotificationForBearyChat method on your notifiable entity.

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable;

    public function routeNotificationForBearyChat()
        return 'https://hook.bearychat.com/...';

  • '@Elf' will route the notification to user "Elf".

  • 'http://webhook/url' will route the notification to an Incoming Robot.
