To provide a drop-in, application-wide alerting functionality to display various types of alerts and notifications to the user in response to their actions.


  • Bootstrap 3 or 4
  • Laravel 5.5 or 5.6
  • PHP >= 7.1.3


  • Feedback notifications in form of bootstrap alerts or modals.
  • Send notifications from facade, app IoC reference, or blade directive.
  • Display notification easily via a blade command.


composer require genealabs/laravel-messenger

Nothing else needs to be done, as the service provider and facades will be auto-loaded.


If you need to make changes to the default configuration, run the following command to publish the configuration file config\genealabs-laravel-messenger.php:

php artisan messenger:publish --config

After that you can configure the configuration according to your needs:

| CSS Framework Configuration
| Here you may configure the CSS framework to be used by Messenger for
| Laravel. This allows you to switch or upgrade frameworks without
| having to recreate all your alerts.
| Available Settings: "bootstrap3", "bootstrap4"

'framework' => 'bootstrap4',

| JavaScript Blade Section
| Your layout blade template will need to have a section dedicated to
| inline JavaScript methods and commands that are injected by this
| package. This will eliminate conflicts with Vue, as well as
| making sure that JS is run after all deps are loaded.

'javascript-blade-section' => 'js',


  1. Trigger an alert using either the facade/IoC helper, or a blade directive in another view:
// IoC helper:
app('messenger')->send('message', 'title', 'level', autoHide, 'framework');

// Facade:
Messenger::send('message', 'title', 'level', autoHide, 'framework');

// Blade directive:
@send ('message', 'title', 'level', autoHide, 'framework')
  1. Add the placeholder to your layout blade file:
<div class="container">






The body of the message you want to deliver to your user. This may contain HTML. If you add links, be sure to add the appropriate classes for the framework you are using.


string | optional | default: ''

Title of the notification, will be inserted as an <h4> tag, can also include HTML. Again, keep in mind to add any framework-specific formatting yourself.


string | optional | default: 'info'

If provided, must be one of the following: 'info', 'success', 'warning', 'danger'.


boolean | optional | default: false

Allows you to let the notification disappear automatically after 15 seconds. If autoHide is false, the user will be provided a close button in the alert.


string | optional | default: 'bootstrap3'

Specify the framework you are using. Right now it only supports 'bootstrap3' or 'bootstrap4'.


string | optional | default: 'alert'

Invoke any of the available alert modes. Currently only supports 'alert' or 'modal'.
