Firebase Cloud Messaging for Laravel

Larafirebase is a package by Gentrit Abazi that provides sending push notifications and custom messages with Firebase in Laravel applications. This package uses Firebase Cloud Messaging—a cross-platform messaging solution to send messages at no cost—to send notifications to users on the client-side.

Here is an example notification class that provides the toFirebase() method to send notifications via the custom firebase channel:

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use Kutia\Larafirebase\Messages\FirebaseMessage;

class SendBirthdayReminder extends Notification
     * Get the notification's delivery channels.
    public function via($notifiable)
        return ['firebase'];

     * Get the firebase representation of the notification.
    public function toFirebase($notifiable)
        $deviceTokens = [

        return (new FirebaseMessage)
            ->withTitle('Hey, ', $notifiable->first_name)
            ->withBody('Happy Birthday!')
            // OR ->asMessage($deviceTokens);

Multi-cloud Spending: 8 Tips To Lower Cost

A multi-cloud approach is nothing but leveraging two or more cloud platforms for meeting the various business requirements of an enterprise. The multi-cloud IT environment incorporates different clouds from multiple vendors and negates the dependence on a single public cloud service provider. Thus enterprises can choose specific services from multiple public clouds and reap the benefits of each.

Given its affordability and agility, most enterprises opt for a multi-cloud approach in cloud computing now. A 2018 survey on the public cloud services market points out that 81% of the respondents use services from two or more providers. Subsequently, the cloud computing services market has reported incredible growth in recent times. The worldwide public cloud services market is all set to reach $500 billion in the next four years, according to IDC.

By choosing multi-cloud solutions strategically, enterprises can optimize the benefits of cloud computing and aim for some key competitive advantages. They can avoid the lengthy and cumbersome processes involved in buying, installing and testing high-priced systems. The IaaS and PaaS solutions have become a windfall for the enterprise’s budget as it does not incur huge up-front capital expenditure.

However, cost optimization is still a challenge while facilitating a multi-cloud environment and a large number of enterprises end up overpaying with or without realizing it. The below-mentioned tips would help you ensure the money is spent wisely on cloud computing services.

  • Deactivate underused or unattached resources

Most organizations tend to get wrong with simple things which turn out to be the root cause for needless spending and resource wastage. The first step to cost optimization in your cloud strategy is to identify underutilized resources that you have been paying for.

Enterprises often continue to pay for resources that have been purchased earlier but are no longer useful. Identifying such unused and unattached resources and deactivating it on a regular basis brings you one step closer to cost optimization. If needed, you can deploy automated cloud management tools that are largely helpful in providing the analytics needed to optimize the cloud spending and cut costs on an ongoing basis.

  • Figure out idle instances

Another key cost optimization strategy is to identify the idle computing instances and consolidate them into fewer instances. An idle computing instance may require a CPU utilization level of 1-5%, but you may be billed by the service provider for 100% for the same instance.

Every enterprise will have such non-production instances that constitute unnecessary storage space and lead to overpaying. Re-evaluating your resource allocations regularly and removing unnecessary storage may help you save money significantly. Resource allocation is not only a matter of CPU and memory but also it is linked to the storage, network, and various other factors.

  • Deploy monitoring mechanisms

The key to efficient cost reduction in cloud computing technology lies in proactive monitoring. A comprehensive view of the cloud usage helps enterprises to monitor and minimize unnecessary spending. You can make use of various mechanisms for monitoring computing demand.

For instance, you can use a heatmap to understand the highs and lows in computing visually. This heat map indicates the start and stop times which in turn lead to reduced costs. You can also deploy automated tools that help organizations to schedule instances to start and stop. By following a heatmap, you can understand whether it is safe to shut down servers on holidays or weekends.

What are the benefits of cloud migration? Reasons you should migrate

The moving of applications, databases and other business elements from the local server to the cloud server called cloud migration. This article will deal with migration techniques, requirement and the benefits of cloud migration.

In simple terms, moving from local to the public cloud server is called cloud migration. Gartner says 17.5% revenue growth as promised in cloud migration and also has a forecast for 2022 as shown in the following image.

How to Migrate From GCM To FCM

Reinforcing Google’s decision made about deprecating the Google Cloud Messaging on 11th April 2019, everyone is required to migrate from GCM to FCM to ensure smoother push notification to the subscribed users. And, the migration part requires seamless efforts and technical expertise to carry out. So, this blog will unfold all the terms pertaining to GCM to FCM migration

Before talking about the migration part, let’s perceive GCM and FCM first.

As we can see, it’s really tough to compete with the brutally obsessed market wherein everyone is trying to pull the maximum number of customers toward their brand, and for doing so, they are ready to shake hands with emerging or trendy technologies. FCM is one of them that leverage its true potential whereby brands can push their customers with real-time efficiency to bring them back to the app or website with lucrative ideas, deals, or information.

What Are GCM & FCM?

GCM was introduced by Google in the year 2012 to allow brands to send push notifications to their users or subscribers in real-time. These push notifications could help brands engage and retain users in the long run. These push notifications act like a notification message about new mail, product release, upcoming deal, personalized discounts, and more.

But, GCM was imbibing some limitations that encouraged Google to bring a revolutionary technology approach in terms of FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging). So, before arriving on how to migrate your GCM to FCM, let’s understand - what is Firebase?

Firebase is an end-to-end Mobile-as-a-Service platform that lets the developers build the apps without the need for managing the infrastructure. It acts as a real-time tool to connect and manage the client application, app server, etc. and provides the opportunity to engage and sustain the user base. It comprises the functionality to promote the app, service offerings, and acquire the user base. Such functional navigation incorporates core configuration, data storage, analytics part, and push notifications.

Limitations Of GCM

Initially, GCM was released to send push notifications but with increasing user complexities and market adoption, a serious need encouraged the advanced level of functionality to drive an effective approach and lead the customer-engaging campaigns more blissfully. Thereby, GCM was deprecated by FCM with more bonzer and modern customer-driven tactics considering the surmounting need of today’s marketplace where retaining the customers’ matters a lot.

Ensuring and implementing things in terms of registration logic, topic subscription, server-error handling part, etc. were not possible with GCM, and FCM is now taking care of these all issues. So, let’s peep more into how FCM overcomes things.

How FCM Overcomes

Migrating from GCM to FCM will enable you to leverage a multitude of functionality available in FCM for instance, platform overrides, topic subscription & combinations, sending push notifications directly leveraging Firebase console. Moreover, FCM can be integrated seamlessly with other Firebase products too for the advancement of your overall FCM experience. Such products include A/B testing, predictive analytics, etc.

Php how to delete multiple rows through checkbox using ajax in laravel

First thing, we will need a table and i am creating products table for this example. So run the following query to create table.

CREATE TABLE `products` (
 `id` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
 `name` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci NOT NULL,
 `description` varchar(255) COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci DEFAULT NULL,
 `created_at` timestamp NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
 `updated_at` datetime DEFAULT NULL,

Next, we will need to insert some dummy records in this table that will be deleted.

INSERT INTO `products` (`name`, `description`) VALUES

('Test product 1', 'Product description example1'),

('Test product 2', 'Product description example2'),

('Test product 3', 'Product description example3'),

('Test product 4', 'Product description example4'),

('Test product 5', 'Product description example5');

Now we are redy to create a model corresponding to this products table. Here we will create Product model. So let’s create a model file Product.php file under app directory and put the code below.


namespace App;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class Product extends Model
    protected $fillable = [

Step 2: Create Route

Now, in this second step we will create some routes to handle the request for this example. So opeen routes/web.php file and copy the routes as given below.


Route::get('product', 'ProductController@index');
Route::delete('product/{id}', ['as'=>'product.destroy','uses'=>'ProductController@destroy']);
Route::delete('delete-multiple-product', ['as'=>'product.multiple-delete','uses'=>'ProductController@deleteMultiple']);
