Activity is a activity/news feed system for Laravel 4 applications.

Installation via Composer

Add this to you composer.json file, in the require object:

"dmyers/laravel-activity": "dev-master"

After that, run composer install to install Activity.

Add the service provider to app/config/app.php, within the providers array.

'providers' => array(
    // ...

Add a class alias to app/config/app.php, within the aliases array.

'aliases' => array(
    // ...
    'Activity' => 'Dmyers\Activity\Activity',

Publish the package's model, migration, and view.

php artisan model:publish dmyers/laravel-activity
php artisan migration:publish dmyers/laravel-activity
php artisan view:publish dmyers/laravel-activity

Finally, add the trait to the models you want to track activity on.

use ActivityTrait;

protected $activity_item_field = 'id';

protected $activity_doer_field = 'user_id';

protected $activity_events = array('created', 'updated', 'deleted');

protected $activity_feed_type = 'user';


First get an instance of an item type (model):

$object = Model::find(1);

Fetch all the activity:

	'id'        => $activity_id, // optional
	'doer_id'   => $doer_id, // optional
	'victim_id' => $victim_id, // optional
	'item_id'   => $item_id, // optional
	'item_type' => $item_type, // optional
	'feed_type' => $feed_type, // optional

Track an activity event:

$object->addActivity($item_type, $doer_id, $victim_id, $action);

Update an activity event:

$object->updateActivity($item_type, $doer_id, $victim_id, $action);

Delete an activity event:

$object->deleteActivity($item_type, $doer_id, $victim_id, $action);

Display an activity feed:

$object->renderActivityFeed($type, $doer_id, $victim_id);

Push a feed into another activity feed:

$object->pushActivityFeed($type, $doer_id, $victim_id);
