Piwik Mobile Messaging Plugin - SMS Provider Addition request


#1

Hello,

I wanted to ask if there was any possibility of adding Twilio
as another SMS provider [twilio.com] to be used with the
Mobile Messaging plugin aspect of Piwik?
They allow for API access via an API key after account signup very
similiar to Clockwork.

Thanks

Yes it would be possible. You simply have to implement the new SMS Client for Twilio similarly to : http://dev.piwik.org/trac/browser/trunk/plugins/MobileMessaging/SMSProvider/Clockwork.php#L1 - we can also implement it for you if you’re willing to sponsor the feature. Cheers

Hello Matt,

I am not sure what sponsoring would entail. Before I would consider
sponsoring I guess I would be interested in knowing if there is
a need outside of myself for this interest. Otherwise, email will
remain practical. SMS woudl be a good addon but more of
an accessory addon versus a – real client need to have – resource.

I appreciate the prompt response. Thank you.

I see this thread is somewhat dated … but wanted to share some info around Piwik and Twilio. I’m a new Piwik user/developer and have been really impressed with Piwik’s capabilities. I recently blogged @ [url=https://developer.ibm.com/bluemix/2014/07/03/getting-started-piwik-ibm-bluemix/] about how users can deploy Piwik onto IBM’s new Platform as a Service Bluemix platform. [url=https://www.bluemix.net] In the post, I demonstrate a way to run Piwik on Bluemix and leverage the SendGrid and Twilio SaaS services provided by the platform. Regarding Twilio, I’ve written a SMS Provider that leverages Twilio’s PHP Helper library. This code should be useful, independent of where Piwik is running and can be found in the article. If its worthwhile, I’d also consider contributing it back to the project.
