twilify

Send a text message from the command line with Twilio and Node.js

Install

sudo npm install -g twilify

Usage

twilify --to +15556428832 --from +1555205499 --body "Hello, From The Internet" --sid 1234 --token 5678

Configuration

Instead of having to specify the from number, account SID, and account token every single time, you can simply create environment variables for them.

export TWILIO_PHONE_NUMBER=+1555205499
export TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID=1234
export TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN=5678

Once the environment variables are set, you only need to specify the recipient phone number and message body.

Monitoring Long Running Processes

The man reason for twilify is to notify you when a long running process completes either on a local or remote machine.

./my-long-running-command && twilify -t +15556428832 -b "Your Long Running Process Has Exited"
