To use WebSockets with Laravel and React.js, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install Laravel WebSockets package: Run the following command in your Laravel project directory: composer require beyondcode/laravel-websockets
  2. Publish the configuration files: Run the following command to publish the configuration files: php artisan vendor:publish --provider="BeyondCodeLaravelWebSocketsWebSocketsServiceProvider" --tag="config"
  3. Set up the WebSocket server: Run the following command to start the WebSocket server: php artisan websockets:serve
  4. Create a websocket event: Create a new event class by running the following command: php artisan make:event ExampleEvent Update the event class with the necessary code.
  5. Send a WebSocket event from Laravel: Use the broadcast method to send the event to all connected clients.
  6. Set up React.js to receive WebSocket events: Use a websocket library in React.js like socket.io-client to connect to the WebSocket server. Emit the WebSocket events received from Laravel and update your React components accordingly.


By following the above steps, you can set up WebSockets in your Laravel and React.js application to achieve real-time communication between the server and client.
