This package makes it easy to send notifications using Pushbullet with Laravel 5.3+.



To get the latest version of Pushbullet Notification channel for Laravel 5.3, simply require the project using Composer:

$ composer require laravel-notification-channels/pushbullet

Or you can manually update your require block and run composer update if you choose so:

    "require": {
        "laravel-notification-channels/pushbullet": "^0.3"

You will also need to install guzzlehttp/guzzle http client to send request to Pushbullet API.

If you use Laravel 5.5 you don't need the following step. If not, once package is installed, you need to register the service provider. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers key.

  • NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\PushbulletServiceProvider::class

Setting up the Pushbullet service

In your pushbullet account go to Account settings page. Click Create Access Token button and you will get access_token.

You need to put it to config/services.php configuration file. You may copy the example configuration below to get started:

'pushbullet' => [
    'access_token' => env('PUSHBULLET_ACCESS_TOKEN')


Routing Pushbullet notifications

In order to send notifications to Pushbullet you need to specify recipient for each notifiable entity. There are currently 2 options: pushbullet email or device id of recipient. To provide library with correct notification recipient you need to define routeNotificationForPushbullet method on notifiable entity.

Sending notification to email:

public function routeNotificationForPushbullet()
    return new \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\Targets\Email($this->email);

Sending notification to device id:

public function routeNotificationForPushbullet()
    return new \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\Targets\Device($this->pushbullet_device_id);

Sending notification to all subscribers of channel that has tag:

public function routeNotificationForPushbullet()
    return new \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\Targets\Channel($this->channel_tag);

Fourth option (deprecated):

Although, this option is not recommended, you might just return a string (email or device id) and library will do its best to determine if it is email or device id.

Warning! This option doesn't give you possibility to have channel tag guessed, only email or device id.

public function routeNotificationForPushbullet()
    return $this->email;

via Method

On notification entity just add \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\PushbulletChannel::class item to array that is returned from via method.

toPushbullet Method

In your notification class you also should define toPushbullet method which will return instance of \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\PushbulletMessage.

 * Get the pushbullet representation of the notification.
 * @param  mixed  $notifiable
 * @return \NotificationChannels\Pushbullet\PushbulletMessage
public function toPushbullet($notifiable)
    $url = url('/invoice/' . $this->invoice->id);

    return PushbulletMessage::create('Thank you for using our application!')
        ->title('One of your invoices has been paid!')

Available Message methods

  • note(): set notification type to note (title and message for notification are available)
  • link(): set notification type to link (title, message and url are available)
  • title($title): (string) set notification title
  • message($message): (string) set notification message
