This package makes it easy to send Twilio notifications with Laravel 5.3.

# Contents

# Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require laravel-notification-channels/twilio

Add the service provider (only required on Laravel 5.4 or lower):

// config/app.php
'providers' => [
    ...
    NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioProvider::class,
],

# Setting up your Twilio account

Add your Twilio Account SID, Auth Token, and From Number (optional) to your config/services.php:

// config/services.php
...
'twilio' => [
    'username' => env('TWILIO_USERNAME'), // optional when using auth token
    'password' => env('TWILIO_PASSWORD'), // optional when using auth token
    'auth_token' => env('TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN'), // optional when using username and password
    'account_sid' => env('TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID'),
    'from' => env('TWILIO_FROM'), // optional
],
...

# Usage

Now you can use the channel in your via() method inside the notification:

use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioChannel;
use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioSmsMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class AccountApproved extends Notification
{
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return [TwilioChannel::class];
    }

    public function toTwilio($notifiable)
    {
        return (new TwilioSmsMessage())
            ->content("Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!");
    }
}

You can also send an MMS:

use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioChannel;
use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioMmsMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class AccountApproved extends Notification
{
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return [TwilioChannel::class];
    }

    public function toTwilio($notifiable)
    {
        return (new TwilioMmsMessage())
            ->content("Your {$notifiable->service} account was approved!")
            ->mediaUrl("https://picsum.photos/300");
    }
}

Or create a Twilio call:

use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioChannel;
use NotificationChannels\Twilio\TwilioCallMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class AccountApproved extends Notification
{
    public function via($notifiable)
    {
        return [TwilioChannel::class];
    }

    public function toTwilio($notifiable)
    {
        return (new TwilioCallMessage())
            ->url("http://example.com/your-twiml-url");
    }
}

In order to let your Notification know which phone are you sending/calling to, the channel will look for the phone_number attribute of the Notifiable model. If you want to override this behaviour, add the routeNotificationForTwilio method to your Notifiable model.

public function routeNotificationForTwilio()
{
    return '+1234567890';
}
