A 5-Step Approach To Integrate Real-Time Broadcasting In Laravel
  1. Configure Redis
  2. Create Event And Fire Event
  3. Install Required Packages
  4. Configure Socket.IO
  5. Setup Websocket And Consume Data

Step 1: Configure Redis

Step 2: Create Event And Fire Event

Step 3: Install Required Packages

Step 4: Configure Socket.IO

  • We have created the redis object by connecting to the Redis server and port.
  • We need to subscribe to the channels on which data will be broadcast. We can subscribe to multiple channels.
  • When we fire an event, it will push data into Redis-using redis.on(‘message’) event system will get a message and channel name. Then using io.emit, it will broadcast data on a broadcastPort. Server.listen will listen to incoming requests from broadcastPort.
  • Now, you can run the script by calling the command “node server.js.” It will print the “Socket server is running.” into the console.

Step 5: Setup Websocket And Consume Data
