Integrating Laravel with Firebase and using Vue.js to send push notifications

What is Firebase?

Firebase is a mobile and web application development platform developed by Google. It provides a number of services such as real-time database, authentication, and hosting, making it an all-in-one solution for building modern applications.

One of the key features of Firebase is its ability to send push notifications to users’ devices. This can be particularly useful for keeping users engaged with your application and providing them with timely updates.

Integrating Laravel with Firebase

To integrate Laravel with Firebase, you’ll first need to sign up for a Firebase account and create a new project. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to install the Firebase PHP library by running the following command:

composer require kreait/firebase-php

Next, you’ll need to create a service account for your Firebase project and download the JSON file containing your service account credentials. This file will contain your project’s private key, which you’ll need to use to authenticate your application with Firebase.

Once you’ve downloaded the JSON file, you’ll need to add it to your Laravel project and set the path to the file in the .env file as follows:


Next, you’ll need to create a Firebase client in your Laravel application. You can do this by adding the following code to your AppServiceProvider:

use Kreait\Firebase\Factory;
use Kreait\Firebase\ServiceAccount;

public function register()
    $this->app->singleton(Factory::class, function () {
        $serviceAccount = ServiceAccount::fromJsonFile(env('FIREBASE_CREDENTIALS_PATH'));
        return (new Factory)

Now that you have a Firebase client, you can use it to send push notifications to your users.

Sending push notifications with Vue.js

To send push notifications with Vue.js, you’ll first need to install the Firebase JavaScript library by running the following command:

npm install firebase

Next, you’ll need to create a Vue component that will handle the push notification form. You can do this by creating a new file in the resources/js/components directory and add the following code:
