PHP library

Use Clickatell's PHP script library with our REST messaging APIs to interact with the Clickatell SMS Gateway. The PHP script below allows you to send SMS messages using Clickatell's SMS Platform. Using PHP, you'll also be able to set up callbacks / webhooks for outgoing and inbound messages via a RESTful interface.

Master: Build Status

This library allows integration with the new Clickatell website.

Please Note: Customers with accounts registered on the old central.clickatell.com should use the tagged released or dev branches for version 2 of the repository, version 3 and up is for the new platform and older accounts will not work with this.

Usage

The new APIs only support sendMessage call and webhooks for outgoing and inbound messages via a RESTful interface.

use Clickatell\Rest;
use Clickatell\ClickatellException;

$clickatell = new \Clickatell\Rest('token');

// Full list of support parameters can be found at https://www.clickatell.com/developers/api-documentation/rest-api-request-parameters/
try {
    $result = $clickatell->sendMessage(['to' => ['27111111111'], 'content' => 'Message Content']);

    foreach ($result['messages'] as $message) {
        var_dump($message);

        /*
        [
            'apiMsgId'  => null|string,
            'accepted'  => boolean,
            'to'        => string,
            'error'     => null|string
        ]
        */
    }

} catch (ClickatellException $e) {
    // Any API call error will be thrown and should be handled appropriately.
    // The API does not return error codes, so it's best to rely on error descriptions.
    var_dump($e->getMessage());
}

Status/Reply Callback

After configuring your webhooks/callbacks inside the developer portal, you can use the static callback methods to listen for web requests from Clickatell. These callbacks will extract the supported fields from the request body.

use Clickatell\Rest;
use Clickatell\ClickatellException;

// Outgoing traffic callbacks (MT callbacks)
Rest::parseStatusCallback(function ($result) {
    var_dump($result);
    // This will execute if the request to the web page contains all the values
    // specified by Clickatell. Requests that omit these values will be ignored.
});

// Incoming traffic callbacks (MO/Two Way callbacks)
Rest::parseReplyCallback(function ($result) {
    var_dump($result);
    // This will execute if the request to the web page contains all the values
    // specified by Clickatell. Requests that omit these values will be ignored.
});
