Hubot Twilio Adapter


This is the Twilio adapter for hubot that allows you to send an SMS to your Hubot and he will send an SMS back with the response.


  • Add hubot-twilio as a dependency in your hubot's package.json
  • Install dependencies with npm install
  • Run hubot with bin/hubot -a twilio

Note if running on Heroku

You will need to change the process type from app to web in the Procfile.


You will need to set some environment variables to use this adapter.


% heroku config:add HUBOT_SMS_FROM="+14156662671"

% heroku config:add HUBOT_SMS_SID="AC5d10e5624da757326d12f8d31c08c20b"

% heroku config:add HUBOT_SMS_TOKEN="4ada63e18146a204e468fb6289030231"

Non-Heroku environment variables

% export HUBOT_SMS_FROM="+14156662671"

% export HUBOT_SMS_SID="AC5d10e5624da757326d12f8d31c08c20b"

% export HUBOT_SMS_TOKEN="4ada63e18146a204e468fb6289030231"

Then you will need to set the HTTP endpoint on Twilio to point to your server and make sure the request type is set to GET. The endpoint should have /hubot/sms as the path.


Here's the most direct way to get your work merged into the project.

  1. Fork the project
  2. Clone down your fork
  3. Create a feature branch
  4. Hack away and add tests, not necessarily in that order
  5. Make sure everything still passes by running tests
  6. If necessary, rebase your commits into logical chunks without errors
  7. Push the branch up to your fork
  8. Send a pull request for your branch
