Sending notifications

The package leverages Laravel 5.3's native notifications to let you know that your backups are ok, or not. Out of the box it can send notifcations via mail and Slack (for Slack you'll need to require guzzlehttp/guzzle in your project).

Configuration

This is the portion of the configuration that will determine when and how notifications will be sent.

//config/backup.php

    /*
     * You can get notified when specific events occur. Out of the box you can use 'mail' and 'slack'.
     * For Slack you need to install guzzlehttp/guzzle.
     *
     * You can also use your own notification classes, just make sure the class is named after one of
     * the `Spatie\Backup\Events` classes.
     */
