Matt Stauffer:
Introducing Laravel Echo: An In-Depth Walk-Through
Jun 17, 2016 @ 12:11:02

Matt Stauffer has a new post to his site where he's put together an in-depth look at Laravel Echo, a feature included in newer versions of the framework that makes it easy to integrate websockets into your Laravel-based application.

A few weeks ago, Taylor Otwell introduced another branded product within the Laravel line: Laravel Echo. So far, the only coverage it's gotten has been his Laracasts video intro, but I recently wrote it up for my book and wanted to share that with you. What follows is an excerpt from Laravel: Up and Running, heavily modified to make sense in a blog format.

He then gets into what Echo is and the different pieces that make it up: updates to the Laravel broadcast system and a new Javascript package. He suggests some places where using Echo makes sense and how to set up a simple broadcast event in your application (non-Echo to start). This makes use of the Pusher service for real-time event broadcasting. With that in place, he helps you install the Echo dependencies and integrating messages from both public and private channels. He also includes a bit of code at the end to exclude the message from broadcasting to the current user if you ever find a need for it.
