Hello, this might sound strange, but I am extremely confused as to which of the thousands approach I should take to integrate a simple real-time messaging between users. Assuming you have two registered users, when one of them goes to the other users' profile, I want them him to be able to send a private message to that user.
The part I am complicating myself its that I want to experiment with real-time messaging to do this. So far I think I want to follow the pusher approach. I have followed their tutorial -> https://pusher.com/tutorials/chat-laravel and this works beautifully, but what would be the next step, to take this as a base, but to use it as described above, only between two authenticated users ? Any other suggestions on how you'd go creating something like this are welcome.
Thanks in advance
