How to implement Laravel Notification

Follow these steps to implement Laravel notifications: 


Step 1 - What constitutes a notification class? To send notifications to your users, you must define a notification class. Run the following command in your terminal to create a new notification class:

php artisan make:notification NewNotification

This command will create a new notification class in the app/Notifications directory.


Step 2 - Modify the Notification: The toMail() and toArray() methods of the notification class can be changed to make the notice your own. Whereas the toMail() function is used to define the email message that will be sent to the user, the toArray() method is used to define the notification data that will be given to other channels, such as SMS or Push Notifications.


Step 3 - Deliver the Notification: After creating the notification class, you can inform the user by using the user instance's notify() method.

For example:

use App\Notifications\NewNotification;

$user->notify(new NewNotification());

This will send the notification to the user via their preferred channel, such as email or SMS.


Step 4 - Configure Notification Channels: The via() function of the notification class allows you to configure the notification channels. Laravel supports email, SMS, and database channels by default, but you may also add support for additional channels like Pusher or Slack.

For example, to add support for the Slack channel, you can modify the via() method as follows:

public function via($notifiable)
    return ['mail', 'slack'];

This will send the notification to the user via email and Slack.


That's it! By following these steps, you can implement Laravel notifications in your application.
