In your application workflow, you may need to pass important information to your users. Most services require your users to have an internet connection and unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Luckily, we can overcome this by using Twilio.

For the Setup of this package in your laravel project you need to follow the Below steps.

1. Installation

For installing this package through Composer. Run this command from the Terminal:

  • composer require aloha/twilio

Then after In your config->app.php file add the following line to the providers array:

  • Aloha\Twilio\Support\Laravel\ServiceProvider::class

Add the following line to the aliases array:

  • ‘Twilio’ => Aloha\Twilio\Support\Laravel\Facade::class

You can publish the default config file with this artisan command

  • php artisan vendor:publish

2. Collect Details from Twilio Account

  • Signup/Signin On Twilio

    • If you already have a Twilio account then sign into your existing account.
    • If you are new in this then you’ll need to sign up for a Twilio account.
  • After Successfully Registration, Go to Dashboard of twilio and collect ACCOUNT SID & AUTH TOKEN

    • Add Collected information in the environment (.env) file.

3. Facade

First, include the facade class at the top of your file:

For the Globally use in project, create function in your Global Helper file:

Now you can easily use this function in any file.

4. Set Multiple Countries for send SMS

Twilio supports messaging in a specific country.

Your project is set up to only allow access to your home country, which is determined by the phone number you verified during signup. If you’d like to enable new countries to send SMS to, please modify your permissions from the Messaging Geographic Permissions page in Console.

  • Go to All product & services option and select Programmable Messaging.

  • Then Go to Messaging Services -> Setting -> Geo Permissions.

  • Now Enable the countries from the list that you want to send SMS.

Packages can serve as a great way to reuse code and help us obey the maxim of Don’t Repeat Yourself (DRY), which is the problem I have had in my case. We’ve seen in this blog how we can create a Twilio kit explicitly intended for use with Laravel. You will find the code, as well as instructions for download, on Github.
