RubyGSM is a Ruby library which uses ruby-serialport to provide a nifty interface to send and receive SMS messages via a GSM modem.
class ReverseApp def initialize(gsm) gsm.receive(method(:incoming)) @gsm = gsm end def incoming(from, datetime, message) @gsm.send(from, message.reverse) end end gsm = Gsm::Modem.new("/dev/tty.usbserial") ReverseApp.new(gsm)
If you just want to send sms
gsm = Gsm::Modem.new("/dev/tty.usbserial") msg = Gsm::Outgoing.new(gsm, "+447777777777", "Oh hai") msg.send!
RubyGSM is distributed via GitHub, which you must add as a gem source before installing:
$ sudo gem sources -a http://gems.github.com
The library depends upon ruby-serialport, which is currently maintained on GitHub by Toholio. This library is included as a Gem dependancy, so to install both:
$ sudo gem install adammck-rubygsm
The ruby-serialport library is available in the APT repository as a binary package, which is substatially less hassle to install than the Gem, for those who don't have a compiler installed (I prefer not to, on production servers). To install the package via apt, and ignore the Gem dependancy:
$ sudo apt-get install libserialport-ruby $ sudo gem install --ignore-dependencies adammck-rubygsm
$ gem build rubygsm.gemspec
There is a known issue when you try to send message to shortcode. Enble :debug to see problem.
