The Pushman PHP Library

Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Latest Unstable Version License


composer require pushman/phplib


use Pushman\PHPLib\Pushman;
$pushman = new Pushman('private-key-goes-here');

$response = $pushman->push('kittens_are_cute', 'public', ['foo' => 'asdasdasdasd']);

As of version 2.1.0 in Pushman, you can push to multiple channels by feeding an array into the channels variable.

use Pushman\PHPLib\Pushman;
$pushman = new Pushman('private-key-goes-here');

$response = $pushman->push('kittens_are_cute', ['public', 'auth'], ['foo' => 'asdasdasdasd']);

On your own pushman instance:

use Pushman\PHPLib\Pushman;
$pushman = new Pushman('private-key-goes-here, ['url' => 'http://pushman.yoursite.com']);

$response = $pushman->push('kittens_are_cute', 'public', ['foo' => 'asdasdasdasd']);

$response will always return a JSON payload with status and message along with any other relevant information about your event.

Extending Laravel

You can also extend Laravels event() functionality by including the Pushman ServiceProvider in your config/app.php file. Add the service provider Pushman\PHPLib\PushmanServiceProvider in your app.php file and then in your .env file, add the following keys:


Later in your config/broadcasting.php file, add in under connections the Pushman settings:

'pushman' => [
    'driver'  => 'pushman',
    'private' => env('PUSHMAN_PRIVATE'),
    'url'     => env('PUSHMAN_URL'),

From that point onwards, you can use php artisan make:event {Name} to make a Laravel Event, inside that event implement ShouldBroadcast, and in your broadcastOn function, return an array of channels you want to broadcast on.


php artisan make:event UserCreated - Called when a user is created.

$user = new User([
	'name' => 'James Duffleman',
	'email' => 'george@duffleman.co.uk',
	'password' => bcrypt('aPassword')

event(new UserCreated($user));
use Illuminate\Contracts\Broadcasting\ShouldBroadcast;

class UserCreated extends Event implements ShouldBroadcast {

    public $user;

    public function __construct($user)
        $this->user = $user;
    public function broadcastOn()
        return ['public'];

Getting Information

Because Pushman can generate your public token every 60 minutes, updating your clients should be an automatic process. You can use the following code to grab the public token of any channel.

use Pushman\PHPLib\Pushman;
$pushman = new Pushman('private-key-goes-here');

$response = $pushman->token('public');
$token = $response['token'];

And you can load all channel information by the channels() and channel() method.

use Pushman\PHPLib\Pushman;
$pushman = new Pushman('private-key-goes-here');

$response = $pushman->channel('auth');
$max_connections = $response['max_connections'];

$response = $pushman->channels();
foreach($response as $channel) {
	echo("Found channel {$channel['name']}.\n");

Todo for Future Versions

  • Add endpoint support for /api/subcribers.
  • Add some sort of trait/interface so you can append it to your existing user model and broadcast out easily to that specific user.
