Our dashboard has been updated to make use of Laravel Echo

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 1 minute read

A couple of months ago we released a dashboard powered by Laravel, Pusher and Vue.js. In tandem with Laravel 5.3 a new JavaScript library was released called Laravel Echo. This library makes it very easy to work with a service like Pusher.

This weekend I took the time to update the dashboard to make use of Laravel Echo. All the custom code handling communication an authentication with Pusher was removed and replaced by Echo.

If you want to see the updated source code head over to the dashboard repo at GitHub. I also updated the blog post about the dashboard to reflect all the code changes.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
