Laravel - Redis - Pubsub

Laravel provides a convenient interface to the Redis publish and subscribe commands. These Redis commands allow you to listen for messages on a given "channel". You may publish messages to the channel from another application, or even using another programming language, allowing easy communication between applications and processes.

First, let's setup a channel listener using the subscribe method. We'll place this method call within an Artisan command since calling the subscribe method begins a long-running process:


Now we may publish messages to the channel using the publish method:

    use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Redis;
    Route::get('/publish', function () {
        // ...
        Redis::publish('test-channel', json_encode([
            'name' => 'Adam Wathan'
