This package makes it easy to send notifications using the Discord bot API with Laravel.



You can install the package via composer:

composer require laravel-notification-channels/discord

Next, you must load the service provider:

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    // ...

Setting up your Discord bot

  1. Create a Discord application.

  2. Click the Create a Bot User button on your Discord application.

  3. Paste your bot's API token, found under App Bot User, in your services.php config file:

    // config/services.php
    'discord' => [
        'token' => 'YOUR_API_TOKEN',
  4. Add the bot to your server and identify it by running the artisan command:

    php artisan discord:setup


In every model you wish to be notifiable via Discord, you must add a channel ID property to that model accessible through a routeNotificationForDiscord method:

class Guild extends Eloquent
    use Notifiable;

    public function routeNotificationForDiscord()
        return $this->discord_channel;

NOTE: Discord handles direct messages as though they are a regular channel. If you wish to allow users to receive direct messages from your bot, you will need to create a private channel with that user. An example workflow may look like the following:

  1. Your users table has two discord columns: discord_user and discord_channel
  2. When a user updates their Discord user ID (discord_user), generate and save a channel ID (discord_channel)
  3. Return the user's discord_channel in the routeNotificationForDiscord method on the User model

You can generate direct message channels by using the getPrivateChannel method in NotificationChannels\Discord\Discord:

use NotificationChannels\Discord\Discord;
// ...

class UserDiscordSettingsController
    public function store(Request $request)
        $user = $request->input('discord_user');
        $channel = app(Discord::class)->getPrivateChannel($user);

            'discord_user' => $user,
            'discord_channel' => $channel,

You may now tell Laravel to send notifications to Discord channels in the via method:

// ...
use NotificationChannels\Discord\DiscordChannel;
use NotificationChannels\Discord\DiscordMessage;

class GameChallengeNotification extends Notification
    public $challenger;

    public $game;

    public function __construct(Guild $challenger, Game $game)
        $this->challenger = $challenger;
        $this->game = $game;

    public function via($notifiable)
        return [DiscordChannel::class];

    public function toDiscord($notifiable)
        return DiscordMessage::create("You have been challenged to a game of *{$this->game->name}* by **{$this->challenger->name}**!");
