Ruby SMS gateway client for sign-up.to
Well, I finally got round to getting my own RubyForge project! Its been a while coming now, but I decided to release some of the work ive done using the (SignUpTo)[http://sign-up.to] SMS gateway as a gem :)
Its still very early stages, as i only needed something rough for the project I was working on, however i put it out anyway - its rough but it does work I assure you! lol
You can check the project page at (signupto.rubyforge.org)[http://signupto.rubyforge.org] and download the source files (here)[http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4542].
Otherwise, if you wanna install via gems, just do the usual:
sudo gem install signupto
So how do I use it?
For this example, we'll use rails, at thats probally where people might use it most often... In your boot.rb do
Then require the files in your enviroment.rb
That will then let you use the classes anywhere in your app :) such as
<code>account = Net::SMS::SignupTo::Account.new(‘YOUR ACCOUNT HASH', ‘CUSTOMER') message = Net::SMS::SignupTo::Message.new(RECIPIENT_NUMBER, 'NAME OF SENDER (max 12 chars)', ‘BODY OF MESSAGE, NON-URI encoded')</code> <code>send = Net::SMS::SignupTo::Send.new(account, message)</code>
The SMS's should then just fly out the door! Apologies as I know this is a very rushed first post about this, but I have places to go and people to see ;) I'll be bolstering the unit tests and examples soon. Stay tuned people!!
