Quickly send a message to Slack

Latest Version on Packagist run-tests PHPStan Check & fix styling Total Downloads

This package can quickly send alerts to Slack. You can use this to notify yourself of any noteworthy events happening in your app.

use Spatie\SlackAlerts\Facades\SlackAlert;

SlackAlert::message("You have a new subscriber to the {$newsletter->name} newsletter!");

Under the hood, a job is used to communicate with Slack. This prevents your app from failing in case Slack is down.

Want to send alerts to Discord instead? Check out laravel-discord-alerts.

You can install the package via composer:

You can set a SLACK_ALERT_WEBHOOK env variable containing a valid Slack webhook URL. You can learn how to get a webhook URL in the Slack API docs.

Alternatively, you can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="slack-alerts-config"

This is the contents of the published config file:

return [
     * The webhook URLs that we'll use to send a message to Slack.
    'webhook_urls' => [
        'default' => env('SLACK_ALERT_WEBHOOK'),

     * This job will send the message to Slack. You can extend this
     * job to set timeouts, retries, etc...
    'job' => Spatie\SlackAlerts\Jobs\SendToSlackChannelJob::class,


To send a message to Slack, simply call SlackAlert::message() and pass it any message you want.

SlackAlert::message("You have a new subscriber to the {$newsletter->name} newsletter!");

Using multiple webhooks

You can also use an alternative webhook, by specify extra ones in the config file.

// in config/slack-alerts.php

'webhook_urls' => [
    'default' => '',
    'marketing' => '',

The webhook to be used can be chosen using the to function.

use Spatie\SlackAlerts\Facades\SlackAlert;

SlackAlert::to('marketing')->message("You have a new subscriber to the {$newsletter->name} newsletter!");

Using a custom webhooks

The to function also supports custom webhook urls.

use Spatie\SlackAlerts\Facades\SlackAlert;

SlackAlert::to('')->message("You have a new subscriber to the {$newsletter->name} newsletter!");



You can format your messages with Slack's markup. Learn how in the Slack API docs.

use Spatie\SlackAlerts\Facades\SlackAlert;

SlackAlert::message("A message *with some bold statements* and _some italicized text_.");

Links are formatted differently in Slack than the classic markdown structure.

SlackAlert::message("<|This is a link to our homepage>");


You can use the same emoji codes as in Slack. This means custom emoji's are also supported.

use Spatie\SlackAlerts\Facades\SlackAlert;

SlackAlert::message(":smile: :custom-code:");
