Send text messages with Twilio ( Easily.


Set the following ENV variables:

  • TWILIO_ID - Your Twilio API id token.
  • TWILIO_SECRET - Your Twilio API secret token.
  • TWILIO_PHONE (optional) - One of your Twilio phone numbers.

Then send some texts!

If you've set ENV['TWILIO_PHONE']:

SMS.text "Hello!", :to => "5558675309"

If you haven't:

SMS.text "Hello!", :to => "5558675309", :from => "5555555555"

Calling SMS.text returns true or false depending on whether or not it was a success. You can also call SMS.text!, which will raise an error if the text does not get sent successfully.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
