FCM Push Notification in Laravel Example

By Hardik Savani July 10, 2022 Category : Laravel

Today, laravel fcm push notification example is our main topic. let’s discuss about laravel firebase fcm push notification example. step by step explain fcm push notification in laravel. In this article, we will implement a send fcm notification in laravel.

You can use this example with laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8 and laravel 9 version.

Here, I will give you very simple steps to sending push notifications to the android and ios app using laravel application. so basically your front-end mobile application provides you a devise token and you will store it in the database. Then you will use that device token to send push notifications using firebase laravel. so let's follow below steps:

Step 1: Install Laravel

This is optional; however, if you have not created the laravel app, then you may go ahead and execute the below command:

composer create-project laravel/laravel example-app

Step 2: Create Firebase Project and App

In first step, we have to go Firebase Console and create a project. then you have to create web app on that project as like i added bellow screenshot:

After created successfully created app we will go to setting page and get server api key as like bellow screen shot:

You can copy that key and add on env file as bellow:

.env

FCM_SERVER_KEY=XXXXX

Step 3: Create Route

Here, we need to add some routes to send push notification so let's add that route in web.php file.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\NotificationController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('push-notification', [NotificationController::class, 'index']);

Route::post('sendNotification', [NotificationController::class, 'sendNotification'])->name('send.notification');

Step 4: Create Controller

Here, we need add index() and sendNotification() method for admin route in NotificationController.

In sendNotification() method we will get all device token from users table and send notification to user. Make sure you have "device_token" column in users table and added token there.

now, so let's add like as bellow:

app/Http/Controllers/NotificationController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use App\Models\User;

class NotificationController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

return view('pushNotification');

}

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function sendNotification(Request $request)

{

$firebaseToken = User::whereNotNull('device_token')->pluck('device_token')->all();

$SERVER_API_KEY = env('FCM_SERVER_KEY');

$data = [

"registration_ids" => $firebaseToken,

"notification" => [

"title" => $request->title,

"body" => $request->body,

]

];

$dataString = json_encode($data);

$headers = [

'Authorization: key=' . $SERVER_API_KEY,

'Content-Type: application/json',

];

$ch = curl_init();

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send');

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, true);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $dataString);

$response = curl_exec($ch);

return back()->with('success', 'Notification send successfully.');

}

}

Step 5: Update Blade File

In this step, we will create pushNotification.blade.php file with following code:

resources/views/pushNotification.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

<title>Laravel Firebase Push Notification to Android and IOS App Example - ItSolutionStuff.com</title>

<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/bootstrap@5.0.2/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

</head>

<body>

<br/>

<div class="container">

<div class="row justify-content-center">

<div class="col-md-8">

<div class="card">

<div class="card-header">{{ __('Dashboard') }}</div>

<div class="card-body">

@if (session('success'))

<div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">

{{ session('success') }}

</div>

@endif

<form action="{{ route('send.notification') }}" method="POST">

@csrf

<div class="form-group">

<label>Title</label>

<input type="text" class="form-control" name="title">

</div>

<div class="form-group">

<label>Body</label>

<textarea class="form-control" name="body"></textarea>

</div>

<button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Send Notification</button>

</form>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</body>

</html>
