Notification Example Via Laravel Queue

Now i am going to create a new post notification system in laravel using laravel queue. When we will create a new post then our all subscribers will be notified. Let’s see how we can do it.


Step 1: Creating Notification

In Laravel, each notification is represented by a single class (typically stored in the app/Notifications directory). Don't worry if you don't see this directory in your application, it will be created for you when you run the make:notification Artisan command:

php artisan make:notification NewPostNotify


This command will place a fresh notification class in your app/Notifications directory. Each notification class contains a via method and a variable number of message building methods(such as toMail or toDatabase) that convert the notification to a message optimized for that particular channel.

Step 2: Setup config/app.php

Now go to your config/app.php file and this provider



Now we have to set up our controller. So go to your controller and paste the following code

Step 3 : Setup Controller

Now paste the following code to your post controller.


namespace App\Http\Controllers\Admin;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use App\Model\user\Post;
use App\Notifications\NewPostNotify;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Notification;
use App\Model\user\Subscriber;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
class PostController extends Controller{
    public function store(Request $request)
       //Save your new post here . after posting then send mail to the subscriber
        $subscribers = Subscriber::all(); //Retrieving all subscribers
        foreach($subscribers as $subscriber){
            Notification::route('mail' , $subscriber->email) //Sending mail to subscriber
                          ->notify(new NewPostNotify($posts)); //With new post
        return redirect()->back();


Step 4 :   Setup App/Notificatios/NewPostNotify.php

Now finally Setup your Notification file. Go you App/Notificatios/NewPostNotify.php file and paste the following code. Now here we have to change just one thing. Just add implements ShouldQueue after extends Notification


namespace App\Notifications;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage;

class Newpost extends Notification implements ShouldQueue
    use Queueable;
    public $post;
    public function __construct($post)
       $this->post = $post;
    public function via($notifiable)
        return ['mail'];
   public function toMail($notifiable)
        return (new MailMessage)
                    ->subject('Hey, New article is availabe')
                    ->line('Higgs boson has published a new article')
                    ->line('Post title : '.$this->post->title) 
                    ->action('Read Post' , url(route('article' , $this->post->slug)))
                    ->line('Thank you for being with us!');
    public function toArray($notifiable)
        return [

Database Setup for Laravel Queues

In order to use the database queue driver, you will need a database table to hold the jobs. To generate a migration that creates this table, run the queue:table Artisan command. Once the migration has been created, you may migrate your database using the migrate command:

php artisan queue:table


You can use Redis. In order to use the redis queue driver, you should configure a Redis database connection in your config/database.php configuration file.

This command will create a migration file in the database/migrations folder. The newly created file will contain the schema for the jobs table which we need to process the queues.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
class CreateJobsTable extends Migration
    public function up()
        Schema::create('jobs', function (Blueprint $table) {
    public function down()


Now it’s time to run the migrate command which will create the table in the database. Run the below command to migrate:

php artisan migrate


Now we need to update the current queue drive in our environment file. Open your .envfile and change the queue drive to the database like below:


QUEUE_DRIVER = database


All are almost done to configure laravel queue in our laravel app. Just run the below command to complete our queue setup.

php artisan queue:work
