Laravel WebSockets Package Released

Laravel WebSockets Package Released

Laravel WebSockets is a WebSockets server implemented in PHP for your Laravel projects. It’s also a drop-in replacement for Pusher via the Pusher protocol and Laravel Echo JavaScript server, which means all packages that work with Pusher will work with the Laravel WebSockets package.

Running a WebSocket server is at your fingertips with artisan:

php artisan websockets:serve

The package also comes with an excellent Debug Dashboard which can help you speed up development of WebSocket features in your applications:

The initial Laravel Websockets release is a collaborative effort by Marcel Pociot and Freek Van der Herten. Freek has a very detailed writeup Introducing laravel-websockets, an easy to use WebSocket server implemented in PHP that goes into great detail on the background of the package, how to use it, and many other aspects of the projects.

The documentation includes some benchmarks and the scale looks promising. Of course, your mileage will vary from project-to-project, including your specific application needs and usage patterns.

To learn more about the package and how to use it to check out the Laravel WebSockets documentation. The source code is available on GitHub at beyondcode/laravel-websockets.
