# Web push notifications channel for Laravel

Latest Version on Packagist Build Status Quality Score Code Coverage Total Downloads

This package makes it easy to send web push notifications with Laravel.

# Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require laravel-notification-channels/webpush

First you must install the service provider (skip for Laravel>=5.5):

// config/app.php
'providers' => [

Add the NotificationChannels\WebPush\HasPushSubscriptions trait to your User model:

use NotificationChannels\WebPush\HasPushSubscriptions;

class User extends Model
    use HasPushSubscriptions;

Next publish the migration with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="NotificationChannels\WebPush\WebPushServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

Run the migrate command to create the necessary table:

php artisan migrate

You can also publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="NotificationChannels\WebPush\WebPushServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Generate the VAPID keys (required for browser authentication) with:

php artisan webpush:vapid

This command will set VAPID_PUBLIC_KEY and VAPID_PRIVATE_KEYin your .env file.

These keys must be safely stored and should not change.

If you still want support Google Cloud Messaging set the GCM_KEY and GCM_SENDER_ID in your .env file.

# Usage

Now you can use the channel in your via() method inside the notification as well as send a web push notification:

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use NotificationChannels\WebPush\WebPushMessage;
use NotificationChannels\WebPush\WebPushChannel;

class AccountApproved extends Notification
    public function via($notifiable)
        return [WebPushChannel::class];

    public function toWebPush($notifiable, $notification)
        return (new WebPushMessage)
            ->body('Your account was approved!')
            ->action('View account', 'view_account')
            ->options(['TTL' => 1000]);
            // ->data(['id' => $notification->id])
            // ->badge()
            // ->dir()
            // ->image()
            // ->lang()
            // ->renotify()
            // ->requireInteraction()
            // ->tag()
            // ->vibrate()

# Save/Update Subscriptions

To save or update a subscription use the updatePushSubscription($endpoint, $key = null, $token = null, $contentEncoding = null) method on your user:

$user = \App\User::find(1);

$user->updatePushSubscription($endpoint, $key, $token, $contentEncoding);

The $key and $token are optional and are used to encrypt your notifications. Only encrypted notifications can have a payload.

# Delete Subscriptions

To delete a subscription use the deletePushSubscription($endpoint) method on your user:

$user = \App\User::find(1);
