Talk is a Laravel package so you can install it via composer. Run this command in your terminal from your project directory.

composer require nahid/talk

Wait for a while, Composer will automatically install Talk in your project.

Configuration

When the download is complete, you have to call this package service in config/app.php config file. To do that, add this line in app.php in providers section

Nahid\Talk\TalkServiceProvider::class,

To use facade you have to add this line in app.php in aliases array

'Talk'      => Nahid\Talk\Facades\Talk::class,

Now run this command in your terminal to publish this package resources

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Nahid\Talk\TalkServiceProvider"

After running this command, all necessary file will be included in your project. This package has two default migrations. So you have to run migrate command like this. (But make sure your database configuration is configured correctly.)

php artisan migrate

Okay, now you need to configure your user model for Talk. Go to config/talk.php and config it.

return [
    'user' => [
        'table' => 'your_users_table_name',
        'model' => 'User\Model',
        'columns' => ['column1', 'column2']
    ]
];

[NB: Here columns mean, the columns that you want should be used for inbox queries]
