Laravel Twilio

UNDER CONSTRUCTION - Laravel Twilio SDK/API Integration

Installation

Begin by installing this package through Composer. Run this command from the Terminal:

composer require collinped/laravel-twilio

If you're using Laravel 5.5+, this is all there is to do.

Should you still be on older versions of Laravel, the final steps for you are to add the service provider of the package and alias the package. To do this open your config/app.php file.

Integration for older versions of Laravel (5.5 -)

To wire this up in your Laravel project, you need to add the service provider. Open app.php, and add a new item to the providers array.

'Collinped\Twilio\TwilioServiceProvider',

This will register a new artisan command for you:

  • twilio:video-room NAME
  • twilio:video-participants SID

Configuring the package

You can publish the config file with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Collinped\Twilio\TwilioServiceProvider" --tag="config"

This is the contents of the file that will be published at config/twilio.php

Insert the following values into your .env

TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN=
TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID=
TWILIO_API_KEY=
TWILIO_API_SECRET=

See Twilio Settings for instructions on how to get these values.

Taking care of routing

Finally, let's take care of the routing. At the app that sends webhooks, you probably configure an URL where you want your webhook requests to be sent. In the routes file of your app (web.php), you must pass that route to Route::post or Route::get depending on your specified method. Here's an example:

Route::post('webhook/twilio-video', 'TwilioVideoWebhookController@handleWebhook')->name('twilio.video.webhook');
Route::post('webhook/twilio-voice', 'TwilioVoiceWebhookController@handleWebhook')->name('twilio.voice.webhook');
Route::post('webhook/twilio-sms', 'TwilioSmsWebhookController@handleWebhook')->name('twilio.sms.webhook');
Route::post('webhook/twilio-fax', 'TwilioFaxWebhookController@handleWebhook')->name('twilio.fax.webhook');

Behind the scenes, this will register a POST or GET route to a controller provided by this package. Because the app that sends webhooks to you has no way of getting a csrf-token, you must add that route to the except array of the VerifyCsrfToken middleware:

protected $except = [
    'webhook/twilio/*', // All Twilio Webhooks
];

Or whitelist each endpoint individually based on your application

protected $except = [
    'webhook/twilio/video', // Twilio Video Webhooks
    'webhook/twilio/voice', // Twilio Voice Webhooks
    'webhook/twilio/voice-recording', // Twilio Voice Recording Webhooks
    'webhook/twilio/sms', // Twilio SMS Webhooks
    'webhook/twilio/conversations', // Twilio Conversations Webhooks
];
