A couple of months ago we released a dashboard powered by Laravel, Pusher and Vue.js. In tandem with Laravel 5.3 a new JavaScript library was released called Laravel Echo. This library makes it very easy to work with a service like Pusher.

This weekend I took the time to update the dashboard to make use of Laravel Echo. All the custom code handling communication an authentication with Pusher was removed and replaced by Echo.

If you want to see the updated source code head over to the dashboard repo at GitHub. I also updated the blog post about the dashboard to reflect all the code changes.
