Laravel send email notification when a user registers

A guide on sending an email when a user registers on your Laravel application. This gives you a near-instant notification on registration activity.

Whilst the user gets a welcome and verify account email you get notice of their registration.

In app/Http/Controllers/Auth/RegisterController.php find the create function and before anything is returned you can build and send a Mail send request:

$signup_data = [
    'email' => $data['email'],
    'name' => $data['name'],
    'username' => $data['username']

Mail::send('emails.signup-notice', compact('signup_data'), function ($message) {
    $message->to('')->subject('New account notice');
    $message->from('', 'Accounts');

In the above example, I am using a custom email view blade file with the $sign_up data passed in. However this email can be done in plain text if you please.

The passed-in values are those that have been validated from the registration form.
