Sometimes it becomes tough to send SMS using gateway API. Along with this, a project can use several SMS API gateways from different sms gateway providers. At that time, sending message or OTP using different gateways become time consuming work. To solve this problem, I am going to share an exiting package that can reduce of thinking for sending SMS to Bangladeshi mobile users in a same way, though providers API docs are different. You can watch this video if you feel bored to read docs

Official GitHub Repository for this package is

Currently Supporting all Major Laravel Versions:

  1. Laravel 6.*
  2. Laravel 7.*
  3. Laravel 8.*
  4. Laravel 9.*
  5. Laravel 10.*

For using this package it is needed to install using composer first. Here is the below package require command for installing package in your laravel project as dependency.

composer require xenon/laravelbdsms

Publish the package

php artisan vendor:publish --provider=Xenon\LaravelBDSms\LaravelBDSmsServiceProvider

Run below command

php artisan config:cache && php artisan migrate

After successful installation, you can now use this package anywhere in your laravel project. Below is a sample code for sending message using DianaHost

Send SMS Using Dynahost

use Xenon\LaravelBDSms\Provider\DianaHost;
use Xenon\LaravelBDSms\Sender;


$sender = Sender::getInstance();
$sender->setProvider(DianaHost::class); //this is demo for Dianahost
$sender->setMobile('017XXYYZZAA');
$sender->setMessage('helloooooooo boss!');
$sender->setConfig(
[
'api_key' => 'your_api_goes_here',
'type' => 'text',
'senderid' => 'sender_id'
]
);
$status = $sender->send();

$sender->setMobile('017XXYYZZAA');
$sender->setMessage('helloooooooo boss!');
$sender->setConfig(
[
'api_token' => 'api token goes here',
'sid' => 'text',
'csms_id' => 'sender_id'
]
);
$status = $sender->send();
