Based on forked from

Added support for Laravel 5.2.*.


Installing the package

composer require asachanfbd/laravel-push-notification

Register the PushNotification service provider by adding it to the providers array in the config/app.php file.

'providers' => array(

Alias the PushNotification facade by adding it to the aliases array in the config/app.php file.

'aliases' => array(
	'PushNotification'      => 'Asachanfbd\LaravelPushNotification\PushNotification',


Copy the config file into your project by running

php artisan vendor:publish

This will generate a config file like this

    'iOS'     => [
        'environment' => env('IOS_PUSH_ENV', 'development'),
        'certificate' => env('IOS_PUSH_CERT', __DIR__ . '/ios-push-notification-certificates/development/certificate.pem'),  
        'passPhrase'  => env('IOS_PUSH_PASSWORD', '291923Job'),
        'service'     => 'apns'

    'android' => [
        'environment' => env('ANDROID_PUSH_ENV', 'development'),
        'apiKey'      => env('ANDROID_PUSH_API_KEY', 'yourAPIKey'),
        'service'     => 'gcm'

Where all first level keys corresponds to an service configuration, each service has its own properties, android for instance have apiKey and IOS uses certificate and passPhrase. You can set as many services configurations as you want, one for each app. A directory with the name 'ios-push-notification-certificates' will be added to the config folder for you to store both development and production certificates.

Dont forget to set service key to identify iOS 'service'=>'apns' and Android 'service'=>'gcm'


                ->send('Hello World, i`m a push message');

Usage advice

This package should be used with Laravel Queues, so pushes dont blocks the user and are processed in the background, meaning a better flow.
