A Brief Introduction

With the twilio-php library, we've simplified interaction with the Twilio REST API. No need to manually create URLS or parse XML/JSON. You now interact with resources directly. Follow the Quickstart Guide to get up and running right now. The User Guide shows you how to get the most out of twilio-php.

Quickstart

Send an SMS

<?php
// Install the library via PEAR or download the .zip file to your project folder.
// This line loads the library
require('/path/to/twilio-php/Services/Twilio.php');

$sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/user/account
$token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/user/account

$client = new Services_Twilio($sid, $token);
$message = $client->account->messages->sendMessage(
  '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number
  '8881231234', // Text this number
  "Hello monkey!"
);

print $message->sid;

Make a Call

<?php
// Install the library via PEAR or download the .zip file to your project folder.
// This line loads the library
require('/path/to/twilio-php/Services/Twilio.php');

$sid = "ACXXXXXX"; // Your Account SID from www.twilio.com/user/account
$token = "YYYYYY"; // Your Auth Token from www.twilio.com/user/account

$client = new Services_Twilio($sid, $token);
$call = $client->account->calls->create(
  '9991231234', // From a valid Twilio number
  '8881231234', // Call this number

  // Read TwiML at this URL when a call connects (hold music)
  'http://twimlets.com/holdmusic?Bucket=com.twilio.music.ambient'
);

Generating TwiML

To control phone calls, your application needs to output TwiML. Use Services_Twilio_Twiml to easily create such responses.

<?php
require('/path/to/twilio-php/Services/Twilio.php');

$response = new Services_Twilio_Twiml();
$response->say('Hello');
$response->play('https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3', array("loop" => 5));
print $response;

That will output XML that looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Response>
    <Say>Hello</Say>
    <Play loop="5">https://api.twilio.com/cowbell.mp3</Play>
<Response>
