It’s so frustrating to search for answers on broadcasting, and find that between documentation and other sites that might write things like a tutorial, there is nothing that goes step by step, with an attitude of teaching people as if they just don’t know what is going on.
Broadcasting in Laravel 5.3 looks really cool, and I want to learn it
My company does not want servers communicating outside the network any more than they have to. This means third party is out of the question.
The Laravel 5.3 documentation leaves me with more questions than answers.
Install Redis, Node, Socket.io and Echo. For all I know there is probably four or five other things I need to install. In other words, other than feeling somewhat comfortable with events/listeners, I have no idea how to get this off the ground.
Is there any instruction out there that will show me how to do this step by step? Something that approaches teaching a novice?
I’m not a novice when it comes to PHP, but I am when it comes to Laravel.
Please don’t point me to the docs. I’ve all but seared them to my brain.
