How to use Laravel with Socket.IO

Link –

Most of the UI in my sideproject Oh Dear! is realtime. Because there is a vast amout of events being broadcasted using Pusher would be too expensive at this stage. So for our broadcasting we use socket.io and laravel-echo-server mentioned in the article below.

I had this challenge where I needed it to show a list of people who are currently viewing a specific URL in Laravel. So I started thinking. Part of me wanted to do a quick hack (luckily that’s not the strongest side of mine), whilst the other wanted to build something cool, reusable and long-lasting.
