You can install the package via composer:

composer require alymosul/laravel-exponent-push-notifications

If you are using Laravel 5.5 or higher this package will automatically register itself using Package Discovery. For older versions of Laravel you must install the service provider manually:

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

Before publish exponent notification migration you must add in .env file:


You can publish the migration with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="NotificationChannels\ExpoPushNotifications\ExpoPushNotificationsServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

After publishing the migration you can create the exponent_push_notification_interests table by running the migrations:

php artisan migrate

You can optionally publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="NotificationChannels\ExpoPushNotifications\ExpoPushNotificationsServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [
    'interests' => [
         * Supported: "file", "database"

        'database' => [
            'events' => [],

            'table_name' => 'exponent_push_notification_interests',


use NotificationChannels\ExpoPushNotifications\ExpoChannel;
use NotificationChannels\ExpoPushNotifications\ExpoMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

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

    public function toExpoPush($notifiable)
        return ExpoMessage::create()
            ->body("Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!");

Managing Recipients

This package registers two endpoints that handle the subscription of recipients, the endpoints are defined in src/Http/routes.php file, used by ExpoController and all loaded through the package service provider.

Routing a message

By default the exponent "interest" messages will be sent to will be defined using the {notifiable}.{id} convention, for example App.User.1, however you can change this behaviour by including a routeNotificationForExpoPushNotifications() in the notifiable class method that returns the interest name.
