This is an easy to use package to send push notification.

Push Service Providers Available:

  • GCM
  • FCM
  • APN

Installation

Laravel version below 5.8

type in console:

composer require "edujugon/push-notification:^v3.0.0"

Laravel 5.8/6 and higher

type in console:

composer require edujugon/push-notification

The package will automatically register its service provider.

Publish the package's configuration file to the application's own config directory

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Edujugon\PushNotification\Providers\PushNotificationServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Go to laravel facade sample directly.

Configuration

After publishing the configuration, you can find the Push service config in config/pushnotification.php

The default configuration parameters for GCM and FCM are :

  • priority => normal
  • dry_run => false
  • apiKey => Your ApiKey

You can dynamically update those values or adding new ones calling the method setConfig like so:

$push->setConfig([
    'priority' => 'high',
    'dry_run' => true,
    'time_to_live' => 3
]);

The default configuration parameters for APN are:

  • certificate => __DIR__ . '/iosCertificates/yourCertificate.pem'
  • passPhrase => 'MyPassPhrase'
  • passFile => __DIR__ . '/iosCertificates/yourKey.pem' //Optional
  • dry_run => false

(Make sure to set dry_run to true if you're using development *.pem certificate, and false for production)

Also you can update those values and add more dynamically

$push->setConfig([
    'passPhrase' => 'NewPass',
    'custom' => 'MycustomValue',
    'dry_run' => true
]);

Even you may update the url of the Push Service dynamically like follows:

$push->setUrl('http://newPushServiceUrl.com');

Not update the url unless it's really necessary.

You can specify the number of client-side attempts to APN before giving up. The default amount is 3 attempts. You can override this value by specifying connection_attempts in setConfig() assoc-array. Keep in mind the default number of requested attempts is 3.

If you prefer to retry indefinitely, set connection_attempts to zero.

$push->setConfig([
    'passPhrase' => 'NewPass',
    'custom' => 'MycustomValue',
    'connection_attempts' => 0,
    'dry_run' => true
]);

Usage

$push = new PushNotification;

By default it will use GCM as Push Service provider.

For APN Service:

$push = new PushNotification('apn');

For FCM Service:

$push = new PushNotification('fcm');

Now you may use any method that you need. Please see the API List.

Usage samples

You can chain the methods.

GCM sample:

$push->setMessage([
        'notification' => [
                'title'=>'This is the title',
                'body'=>'This is the message',
                'sound' => 'default'
                ],
        'data' => [
                'extraPayLoad1' => 'value1',
                'extraPayLoad2' => 'value2'
                ]
        ])
        ->setApiKey('Server-API-Key')
        ->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1','deviceToken2','deviceToken3'...]);

APN sample:

$push->setMessage([
            'aps' => [
                'alert' => [
                    'title' => 'This is the title',
                    'body' => 'This is the body'
                ],
                'sound' => 'default',
                'badge' => 1

            ],
            'extraPayLoad' => [
                'custom' => 'My custom data',
            ]
        ])
    ->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1','deviceToken2','deviceToken3'...]);

or do it separately

$push->setMessage([
       'notification' => [
               'title'=>'This is the title',
               'body'=>'This is the message',
               'sound' => 'default'
               ],
       'data' => [
               'extraPayLoad1' => 'value1',
               'extraPayLoad2' => 'value2'
               ]
       ]);
$push->setApiKey('Server-API-Key');
$push->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1'
    ,'deviceToken2',
    'deviceToken3'
]);

If you want send the notification to only 1 device, you may pass the value as string.

$push->setDevicesToken('deviceToken');

Send the Notification

Method send() can be also chained to the above methods.

$push->setMessage([
       'notification' => [
               'title'=>'This is the title',
               'body'=>'This is the message',
               'sound' => 'default'
               ],
       'data' => [
               'extraPayLoad1' => 'value1',
               'extraPayLoad2' => 'value2'
               ]
       ])
    ->setApiKey('Server-API-Key')
    ->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1','deviceToken2','deviceToken3'...])
    ->send();

Send the Notification by Topic (FCM only)

$push = new PushNotification('fcm');
$response = $push->setMessage(['message'=>'Hello World'])
            ->setApiKey('YOUR-API-KEY')
            ->setConfig(['dry_run' => false])
            ->sendByTopic('dogs');

or with a condition:

$push = new PushNotification('fcm');
$response = $push->setMessage(['message'=>'Hello World'])
            ->setApiKey('YOUR-API-KEY')
            ->setConfig(['dry_run' => false])
            ->sendByTopic("'dogs' in topics || 'cats' in topics",true);

Understanding Gcm and Fcm Message Payload

Notification Message

Add a notification key when setting the message in setMessage method. like follows:

$push->setMessage([
           'notification' => [
                   'title'=>'This is the title',
                   'body'=>'This is the message',
                   'sound' => 'default'
                   ]
           );

You may add some extra payload adding a data key when setting the message in setMessage method.

$push->setMessage([
           'notification' => [
                   'title'=>'This is the title',
                   'body'=>'This is the message',
                   'sound' => 'default'
                   ],
           'data' => [
                   'extraPayLoad1' => 'value1',
                   'extraPayLoad2' => 'value2'
                   ]
           ]);

Data Message

By default, this package sends the notification as Data Message. So no need to add a data key.

$push->setMessage([
           'title'=>'This is the title',
           'body'=>'This is the message',
           'myCustomVAlue' => 'value'
       ]);

The above example is like you were sending the following:

$push->setMessage([
           'data' => [
                   'title'=>'This is the title',
                  'body'=>'This is the message',
                  'myCustomVAlue' => 'value'
                   ]
           ]);

For more details, have a look at gcm/fcm notification paypload support and the concept options

Getting the Notification Response

If you want to get the push service response, you can call the method getFeedback:

    $push->getFeedback();

Or again, chain it to the above methods:

    $push->setMessage(['body'=>'This is the message','title'=>'This is the title'])
                        ->setApiKey('Server-API-Key')
                        ->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1','deviceToken2','deviceToken3'...])
                        ->send()
                        ->getFeedback();

It will return an object with the response.

APN Server Feedback and package Feedback

Any time you send a notification, it will check if APN server has any feedback for your certificate. If so, the responses are merged to our feedback like below:

class stdClass#21 (4) {
  public $success =>
  int(0)
  public $failure =>
  int(1)
  public $tokenFailList =>
  array(1) {
    [0] =>
    string(64) "c55741656e6c3185f3474291aebb5cf878b8719288e52bf4c497292b320312c5"
  }
  public $apnsFeedback =>
  array(1) {
    [0] =>
    class stdClass#16 (3) {
      public $timestamp =>
      int(1478272639)
      public $length =>
      int(32)
      public $devtoken =>
      string(64) "c55741656e6c3185f3474291aebb5cf878b8719288e52bf4c497292b320312c5"
    }
  }
}

Get Unregistered Devices tokens

After sending a notification, you may retrieve the list of unregistered tokens

$push->getUnregisteredDeviceTokens();

This method returns an array of unregistered tokens from the Push service provider. If there isn't any unregistered token, it will return an empty array.

Laravel Alias Facade

After register the Alias Facade for this Package, you can use it like follows:

PushNotification::setService('fcm')
                        ->setMessage([
                             'notification' => [
                                     'title'=>'This is the title',
                                     'body'=>'This is the message',
                                     'sound' => 'default'
                                     ],
                             'data' => [
                                     'extraPayLoad1' => 'value1',
                                     'extraPayLoad2' => 'value2'
                                     ]
                             ])
                        ->setApiKey('Server-API-Key')
                        ->setDevicesToken(['deviceToken1','deviceToken2','deviceToken3'...])
                        ->send()
                        ->getFeedback();

It would return the Push Feedback of the Notification sent.

Notification channels

Formatting Push Notifications

If a notification supports being sent as an push message, you should define toApn and/or toFcm/toGcm methods on the notification class. This method will receive a $notifiable entity and should return a Edujugon\PushNotification\Messages\PushMessage instance:

public function toApn($notifiable)
{
    return new PushMessage('Hello world');
}

Customizing The Title and Body

public function toApn($notifiable)
{
    return (new PushMessage)
        ->title('Hello world')
        ->body('...');
}

Customizing The Notification Sound

public function toApn($notifiable)
{
    return (new PushMessage)
        ->body('Hello world')
        ->sound('default');
}

Customizing The Badge Number

public function toApn($notifiable)
{
  return (new PushMessage)
        ->body('Hello world')
        ->sound('default')
        ->badge(7);
}

Passing Service Config

public function toApn($notifiable)
{
    return (new PushMessage)
        ->body('Hello world')
        ->config(['dry_run' => false]);
}

Add it to the notification channels

public function via($notifiable)
{
    return [ApnChannel::class];
}

Don't forget the use statement at the top of the class

Routing Push Notifications

Just define routeNotificationForApn and/or routeNotificationForFcm/routeNotificationForGcm methods on the entity

/**
 * Route notifications for the Apn channel.
 *
 * @return string|array
 */
public function routeNotificationForApn()
{
    return $this->ios_push_token;
}
