First steps

Require this package, with Composer

composer require broadcastt/broadcastt-laravel-http

The Broadcastt service provider is registered automatically.


If you want you can register the Broadcastt facade.

'Broadcastt' => Broadcastt\Laravel\Facades\Broadcastt::class


To configure only the Broadcasting driver you have to modify config/broadcasting.php. You have to have an item in the connections array with its driver set to broadcastt.

'broadcastt' => [
	'driver' => 'broadcastt',
	'id' => env('BROADCASTER_APP_ID'),
	'key' => env('BROADCASTER_APP_KEY'),
	'secret' => env('BROADCASTER_APP_SECRET'),
	'cluster' => env('BROADCASTER_APP_CLUSTER'),

The recommended way is to use environment variables or use .env to configure these data.

You can also use the PUSHER_APP_KEY, PUSHER_APP_SECRET, PUSHER_APP_ID and PUSHER_APP_CLUSTER environment variables respectively.

To configure other connection for the facade you should publish config/broadcastt.php.

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Broadcastt\Laravel\BroadcasttServiceProvider"

In the published config/broadcasting.php file you can define many connections.

The key of the application

secret (String)

The secret of the application

cluster (String) Optional

Usage of broadcaster

BroadcasttServiceProvider registers a driver for Broadcasting, so in config/broadcasting.php you can use broadcastt driver for broadcasting.

For example you can set BROADCAST_DRIVER environment variable to broadcastt.

Usage of facade

client($connection = null)

Returns a client instance

connection($connection = null)

Alias for client($connection = null)

trigger($channels, $name, $data, $socketId = null, $jsonEncoded = false)

Trigger an event by providing event name and payload.

Optionally provide a socket ID to exclude a client (most likely the sender).

triggerBatch($batch = [], $encoded = false)

Trigger multiple events at the same time.

get($path, $params = [])

GET arbitrary REST API resource using a synchronous http client.

All request signing is handled automatically.
