An example of model observers

First of all, here’s how you can do the same thing you did in the first model events example, using observers.

Create a new file named WelcomeUserObserver.php under app/Observers. Now, type in the following:


  namespace AppObservers;

  class WelcomeUserObserver {

    public function created($user){

      Mail::send('emails.welcome', ['user' => $user], function($message) use ($user)
          $message->to($user->email, $user->first_name . ' ' . $user->last_name)->subject('Welcome to My Awesome App, '.$user->first_name.'!');



Then, you can register the observer in the boot() method of EventServiceProvider:

 /** * Register any other events for your application. * * @param IlluminateContractsEventsDispatch
