Laravel Echo is a tool that makes it easy for you to bring the power of WebSockets to your Laravel Development. It simplifies some of the more common—and more complex—aspects of building complex WebSockets interactions.
When using the Echo?
Before we go any further, let’s take a look at how you might use the Echo, to see if it’s even something you might be interested in.
If you want to use WebSockets within a Laravel app, Echo provides a nice, clean syntax for simple features like public channels and complex features like authentication, authorization, and private and presence channels.
The most important benefits that Echo provides are completely invisible. While you may agree that this is powerful stuff and opens up a ton of opportunities, you might be tempted to say “but Echo is hardly doing anything!”
However, what you’re not seeing is how much work you would do to set up authentication, channel authorization, presence callbacks, and more if you weren’t using Echo.
Some of these features exist in Pusher JS and Socket.io, with varying levels of difficulty, but the Echo makes them simpler and provides consistent conventions. Some of the features don’t exist in the other libraries at all, or at least not as a single, simple feature. The echo takes what could be slow and painful with other socket libraries and makes it simple and easy.
