[DEPRECATED] A Pusher Channels bridge for Laravel

Services available


Need anything else?

Contributors list


Laravel now has built-in support for Pusher Channels. This is now the recommended approach to integrate Channels into a Laravel project.

Currently, Pusher will continue to review any PRs and solve security vulnerabilities in this SDK, but will not be making any major improvements going forward.

Pusher Channels Laravel Library

A Pusher Channels bridge for Laravel. Formerly

// Triggering events.
$pusher->trigger('my-channel', 'my_event', 'hello world');

// Authenticating Private channels. $pusher->socket_auth('my-channel', 'socket_id');

// Want to use the facade? Pusher::get('/channels');

Require this package, with Composer, in the root directory of your project.

$ composer require pusher/pusher-http-laravel

Add the service provider to

in the
array. If you're using Laravel 5.5 or greater, there's no need to do this.

If you want you can use the facade. Add the reference in

to your aliases array.
'Pusher' => Pusher\Laravel\Facades\Pusher::class


The Laravel Channels SDK requires connection configuration. To get started, you'll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Pusher\Laravel\PusherServiceProvider"

This will create a

file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

Default Connection Name

This option

is where you may specify which of the connections below you wish to use as your default connection for all work. Of course, you may use many connections at once using the manager class. The default value for this setting is

Channels Connections

This option

is where each of the connections are setup for your application. Example configuration has been included, but you may add as many connections as you would like.

Encrypted Channels

To enable end to end encrypted channels, you need to uncomment a line from the Channels config file

'app_id' => env('APP_ID'),
'options' => [
    'cluster' => env('APP_CLUSTER'),
    'encryption_master_key' => env('ENCRYPTION_MASTER_KEY'),
'host' => null,
'port' => null,

Then you need to set an

in your
file. You should then be able to publish encrypted events to channels prefixed with
and you can validate this is working by checking the (dashboard)[] debug console for your app!



This is the class of most interest. It is bound to the ioc container as

and can be accessed using the
facade. This class implements the ManagerInterface by extending AbstractManager. The interface and abstract class are both part of Graham Campbell's Laravel Manager package, so you may want to go and checkout the docs for how to use the manager class over at that repository. Note that the connection class returned will always be an instance of


This facade will dynamically pass static method calls to the

object in the ioc container which by default is the


This class contains no public methods of interest. This class should be added to the providers array in

. This class will setup ioc bindings.


Here you can see an example of just how simple this package is to use. Out of the box, the default adapter is

. After you enter your authentication details in the config file, it will just work:
// You can alias this in config/app.php.
use Pusher\Laravel\Facades\Pusher;

Pusher::trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', ['message' => $message]); // We're done here - how easy was that, it just works!

Pusher::getSettings(); // This example is simple and there are far more methods available.


will behave like it is a
. If you want to call specific connections, you can do that with the connection method:
use Pusher\Laravel\Facades\Pusher;

// Writing this… Pusher::connection('main')->log('They see me logging…');

// …is identical to writing this Pusher::log('They hatin…');

// and is also identical to writing this. Pusher::connection()->log('Tryin to catch me testing dirty…');

// This is because the main connection is configured to be the default. Pusher::getDefaultConnection(); // This will return main.

// We can change the default connection. Pusher::setDefaultConnection('alternative'); // The default is now alternative.

If you prefer to use dependency injection over facades like me, then you can inject the manager:

use Pusher\Laravel\PusherManager;

class Foo { protected $pusher;

public function __construct(PusherManager $pusher)
    $this->pusher = $pusher;

public function bar()
    $this->pusher->trigger('my-channel', 'my-event', ['message' => $message]);




There are other classes in this package that are not documented here. This is because the package is a Laravel wrapper of the official Channels package.
