Installation

Laravel WebSockets can be installed via composer:

composer require beyondcode/laravel-websockets

The package will automatically register a service provider.

This package comes with a migration to store statistic information while running your WebSocket server. You can publish the migration file using:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BeyondCode\LaravelWebSockets\WebSocketsServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"

Run the migrations with:

php artisan migrate

Next, you need to publish the WebSocket configuration file:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BeyondCode\LaravelWebSockets\WebSocketsServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the default content of the config file that will be published as config/websockets.php:

return [

    /*
     * This package comes with multi tenancy out of the box. Here you can
     * configure the different apps that can use the webSockets server.
     *
     * Optionally you can disable client events so clients cannot send
     * messages to each other via the webSockets.
