This package uses Pusher Api, so you need to :

  • Create account and modify .env file of your Laravel app with your Pusher api credentials.

$ composer require munafio/chatify

$ php artisan chatify:install

This command will automatically do the following:

  • Some configurations.

  • Publishing the assets (config, views, assets, models, migrations)
