  1. If you are using broadcastAs() you need to prepend '.' in listen function before channel name. For example if you specified "my-event" in Event->broadcastAs() then in laravel-echo "listen('.my-event")". That's because events are namespaced. Example 2, this is how laravel-echo sees you event without the dot: "App.Eventsmy-event", and with the dot: ""

  2. Hi, I have a question. Why is that everytime I refresh the page assigned value coming from the event is gone? Or whenever a user go to another page, a variable holding the value from the event fired is gone. What could be the problem? I am using laravel and vue. Thank you!

  4. Awesome tutorial. You're such a good teacher. Other tutorials i found just zoom past everything and not explaining (or give very little explanation) why they did it.

  5. ATTENTION! A side note! Because posts and comments have a relation of 1 to many, in the "broadcastOn" function event you can just use "$comment->postid" instead of "$comment->post->id"… cas every time you send a message, you are loading too much unnecessary data, and overtime may become expensive.
