One of my favorite projects in the Laravel ecosystem is Echo. Echo enables real-time web applications through the use of WebSockets and hooks directly into Laravel's event broadcasting features. This means developers can use a familiar PHP API to send real-time data. A very common use-case for this type of functionality would be a notification or chat system.
