In this example we will create email notification and send it to particular user, than we saved to database. So, you need to follow few step to make basic example with notification.

Step 1: Download Laravel 5.7

I am going to explain step by step from scratch so, we need to get fresh Laravel 5.7 application using bellow command, So open your terminal OR command prompt and run bellow command:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Step 2: Create Database Table

In this step, we need to create "notifications" table by using laravel 5 artisan command, so let's run bellow command:

php artisan notifications:table

php artisan migrate

Step 3: Create Notification

In this step, we need to create "Notification" by using laravel 5 artisan command, so let's run bellow command, we will create MyFirstNotification.

php artisan make:notification MyFirstNotification

now you can see new folder will create as "Notifications" in app folder. You need to make following changes as like bellow class.

app/Notifications/MyFirstNotification.php

<?php

namespace App\Notifications;

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage;

class MyFirstNotification extends Notification

{

use Queueable;

private $details;

/**

* Create a new notification instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function __construct($details)

{

$this->details = $details;

}

/**

* Get the notification's delivery channels.

*

* @param mixed $notifiable

* @return array

*/

public function via($notifiable)

{

return ['mail','database'];

}

/**

* Get the mail representation of the notification.

*

* @param mixed $notifiable

* @return \Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage

*/

public function toMail($notifiable)

{

return (new MailMessage)

->greeting($this->details['greeting'])

->line($this->details['body'])

->action($this->details['actionText'], $this->details['actionURL'])

->line($this->details['thanks']);

}

/**

* Get the array representation of the notification.

*

* @param mixed $notifiable

* @return array

*/

public function toDatabase($notifiable)

{

return [

'order_id' => $this->details['order_id']

];

}

}

Step 4: Create Route

In this is step we need to create routes for sending notification to one user. so open your "routes/web.php" file and add following route.

routes/web.php

Route::get('send', 'HomeController@sendNotification');

Step 4: Create Controller

Here,we require to create new controller HomeController that will manage generatePDF method of route. So let's put bellow code.

app/Http/Controllers/HomeController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\User;

use Notification;

use App\Notifications\MyFirstNotification;

class HomeController extends Controller

{

/**

* Create a new controller instance.

*

* @return void

*/

public function __construct()

{

$this->middleware('auth');

}

/**

* Show the application dashboard.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Contracts\Support\Renderable

*/

public function index()

{

return view('home');

}

public function sendNotification()

{

$user = User::first();

$details = [

'greeting' => 'Hi Artisan',

'body' => 'This is my first notification from ItSolutionStuff.com',

'thanks' => 'Thank you for using ItSolutionStuff.com tuto!',

'actionText' => 'View My Site',

'actionURL' => url('/'),

'order_id' => 101

];

Notification::send($user, new MyFirstNotification($details));

dd('done');

}

}

Now we are ready to send first notification to user. so let's run our example so run bellow command for quick run:

php artisan serve

you can run following url:

http://localhost:8000/send

you can also send notification like this way:

$user->notify(new MyFirstNotification($details));

you can get sent notifications by following command:

dd($user->notifications);
