Laravel Pusher is a Pusher bridge for Laravel from version 5.1 to 5.4 using the Official Pusher package.

This package is forked from vinkla/laravel-pusher package for supporting Laravel 5.4 using php version earlier 7.x


Look at one of the following topics to learn more about Laravel Pusher.


  • First, require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.
$ composer require jackiedo/laravel-pusher
  • Once update operation completes, the second step is add the service provider. Open config/app.php, and add a new item to the providers array:
'providers' => array(
  • The third step is add the follow line to the section aliases in file config/app.php:
'Pusherer' => Jackiedo\LaravelPusher\Facades\Pusherer::class,


Laravel Pusher requires connection configuration. To get started, you'll need to publish configuration file:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Jackiedo\LaravelPusher\PusherServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This will create a config/pusher.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

Default Connection Name

This option default is where you may specify which of the connections below you wish to use as your default connection for all work. Of course, you may use many connections at once using the manager class. The default value for this setting is main.

Pusher Connections

This option connections is where each of the connections are setup for your application. Example configuration has been included, but you may add as many connections as you would like.



This is the class of most interest. It is bound to the ioc container as pusher and can be accessed using the Facades\Pusherer facade. This class implements the ManagerInterface by extending AbstractManager. The interface and abstract class are both part of Graham Campbell's Laravel Manager package, so you may want to go and checkout the docs for how to use the manager class over at that repository. Note that the connection class returned will always be an instance of Pusher.

Pusherer facade

This facade will dynamically pass static method calls to the pusher object in the ioc container which by default is the PusherManager class.


This class contains no public methods of interest. This class should be added to the providers array in config/app.php. This class will setup ioc bindings.


Here you can see an example of just how simple this package is to use. Out of the box, the default adapter is main. After you enter your authentication details in the config file, it will just work:

Pusherer::trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', ['message' => $message]);
// We're done here - how easy was that, it just works!

// This example is simple and there are far more methods available.

The Pusher manager will behave like it is a Pusher. If you want to call specific connections, you can do that with the connection method:

// Writing this…
Pusherer::connection('main')->log('They see me logging…');

// …is identical to writing this
Pusherer::log('They hatin…');

// and is also identical to writing this.
Pusherer::connection()->log('Tryin to catch me testing dirty…');

// This is because the main connection is configured to be the default.
Pusherer::getDefaultConnection(); // This will return main.

// We can change the default connection.
Pusherer::setDefaultConnection('alternative'); // The default is now alternative.

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades like me, then you can inject the manager:

use Jackiedo\LaravelPusher\PusherManager;

class Foo
    protected $pusher;

    public function __construct(PusherManager $pusher)
        $this->pusher = $pusher;

    public function bar()
        $this->pusher->trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', ['message' => $message]);


Official Documentation

There are other classes in this package that are not documented here. This is because the package is a Laravel wrapper of the Official Pusher package.
