Talk is a Laravel 5 based user conversation (inbox) system. You can easily integrate this package with any Laravel based project. It helps you to develop a messaging system in just 25 mins. So let’s start :)
Talk is a Laravel package so you can install it via composer. Run this command in your terminal from your project directory.

config/app.php config file. To do that, add this line in
To use facade you have to add this line in
'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]
