In order to use this package, you need to have an installation of Laravel with Laravel nova setup.


First install the Nova package via composer:

composer require christophrumpel/nova-notifications

Then publish the config file(optional):

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Christophrumpel\NovaNotifications\ToolServiceProvider"

In there, you can define where to look for the Notification classes, as well as the notifiable models.

return [
     * The namespaces you want to check for Notification classes.
    'notifiableNamespaces' => [
     * The namespaces you want to check for Notifiable classes.
    'notificationNamespaces' => [

Next up, you must register the tool via the tools method of the NovaServiceProvider.

// inside app/Providers/NovaServiceProvder.php

// ...

public function tools()
    return [
        // ...
        new \Christophrumpel\NovaNotifications\NovaNotifications()

You also need to run php artisan migrate on your Laravel application so that the new notifications table will be created.


After installing the tool, you should see the new sidebar navigation item for Notifications.


On the Overview page you can see all of the sent and failed notifications. This only works for notifications sent after installing this package.

Usually, only the notifications sent through the database channel will be stored in the database. This package comes with a new nova_notifications table, where all of them get stored.


On the Send page you can see all of your created notification classes.

If you don't see a newly created notification class, try running composer dump-autoload.


Since you notifications often depend on parameters, this package tries to help you with that. All found constructor parameters will be shown when you try to send a notification. If one of the dependencies is an Eloquent Model, you will get a list with all of the items to choose from.

If you want to create a new notification with custom objects, then this approach will not work for now. If you have a custom use-case, let me know about it, and we can think of a solution.
