Error handling

How to handle notification send errors

If for any reason there would be an error when sending a notification it will fire a Illuminate\Notifications\Events\NotificationFailed event. You can then listen for that.


Event::listen(NotificationFailed::class, function($event){
    info('Error while sending sms');

And the event has $event->notifiable, $event->notification, $event->channel and $event->data(where you have the exception at $event->data['exception'])
