Event-Listener Bindings

Modules should not bind events to listeners, but boxes and apps are expected to do so.

Boxes may define their default event-listener bindings in their own Providers/EventServiceProvider.php file.

The application may want to override these bindings.

As an example a forum box defines that a CommentWasPosted event is being listened by SendEmailToThreadSubscribers and IncreaseUserPostCount listeners. But the implementing app may want to omit sending these emails, so it can override these bindings.

In case you want the module loader to register the module's EventServiceProvider (which it doesn't do by default) you need add this to the module's config file:


return [
    'modules' => [
        Vendor\MyBox\Providers\ModuleServiceProvider::class => [
            'event_listeners' => true
