A simple implementation for Pusher API that helps you integrate a notifications system in a few simple steps.


  1. composer require mrad/notifications-bundle
  2. Enable the bundle in AppKernel.php new SBC\NotificationsBundle\NotificationsBundle(),


Step 1:

First thing you need to create an account with Pusher and then in Your apps menu create a new app.

Step 2:

Add you app configuration to the app/config.yml:

# NotificationsBundle configuration
    app_id:     your_id
    app_key:    your_key
    app_secret: secret
    cluster:    cluster
    # Optional
    # Default false: work without ssl encryption
    # Set it to true to work with ssl encryption
    encrypted:  false

Of course you can find those details in your app in the dashboard.

Step 3:

Now in your view.html.twig (your client side) add this:

{# Call NotificationsBundles's assets #}
{{ notifications_assets() }}
    * After calling notifications_assets() "pusher" is now available
    * and you can use it this way

    // select the channel you want to listen to
    var channel = pusher.subscribe("notifications");// notifications channel
    channel.bind("my-event", function(data) {
        console.log('from notifications channel', data);

    var channel = pusher.subscribe("messages");// messages channel
    channel.bind("my-event", function(data) {
        console.log('from messages channel', data);

And that's it 😃, now to make sure that your client is receiving the data correctly you can test it by calling this console command:
php bin/console notifications:trigger "Your message" "channel"
If you open the browser's console you should see something like this:

Broadcast custom messages from Backend

To broadcast messages from your backend you can simply do this:

// From your controller or service
$data = array(
    'my-message' => "My custom message",
$pusher = $this->get('mrad.pusher.notificaitons');
$channel = 'messages';
$pusher->trigger($data, $channel);

// or you can keep the channel pram empty and will be broadcasted on "notifications" channel by default

Next Step

Now I will show how to create and save notifications in database.
