plugin-easysms for playSMS

Alexandros Mavromichalis of Tern.gr wrote me that they have created a gateway plugin for EasySMS SMS Gateway.

The gateway plugin is here:

They said that they will do their best to keep it up to date, thank you for that.

Gateway Plugin Twilio

playSMS is a web application for managing users, credits, features, routes and gateways, for sending and receiving SMS. playSMS is not an actual SMS gateway, it cannot send or receive SMS by itself. It needs another application or service, SMS gateway or gateway for short, to actually send and receive SMS. Twilio is one of those SMS gateway.

playSMS uses plugins for various functions and one of them is for handling those SMS gateways. Gateway Plugin in playSMS is referred to plugin that handles actions such as sending and receiving SMS for playSMS from/to actual SMS gateway.

In this article I will explain how to configure a Gateway Plugin Twilio to connect playSMS with SMS service in Twilio.

plugin-telnyx for playSMS by PowerPBX

A recent pull-request has been made to the project, it was from PowerPBX for a gateway plugin telnyx. But since I’m having a hard time maintaining gateway plugins due to the need to keep following SMS service provider’s API, I prefer to reject it and ask them to setup their own project just for the plugin.

They did, and thanks for that.

So here you are, the plugin’s project website:

For those using the telnyx’s SMS service or would like to try it, please install the plugin by following installation manual on the plugin’s project website.

Enjoy.

 

SMS Autorespond version 2

New version is available. You can download it from the release page hosted on Github.

Version 2 is an important release, it solved an issue with incoming SMS that is handled by this plugin can’t be found anywhere in the report. Those SMS are recorded in database but they’re not displayed in the report, specifically in All feature messages or My feature messages menu.

The plugin name, the plugin’s folder name, also changed from sms_autorespond to just autorespond. This is due to limitation in the current playSMS that calls plugins sorted by their folder name. For SMS autorespond we want this plugin to handle SMS before plugin incoming.

Visit technical detail about the plugin from its Github website. Installation or upgrade instruction also available on the website.

Enjoy.

SMS Autorespond

I would like to introduce the new plugin I made for playSMS, SMS Autorespond. This plugin will scan each incoming SMS for a match with configured regular expression and reply them automatically based on its setup.

If you know SMS Autoreply, one of the early plugin in playSMS, the main difference with it is the incoming SMS scanned based on patterns, not keyword.

Example use of SMS Command for Mikrotik

When you have working playSMS with Kannel, and Mikrotik configured to do something (not related to SMS), you can integrate them to serve something to your users. In the article below the author mentioned that the goals are:

  1. To renew expired users via sending Username and SCRATCH CODE to playSMS (Ubuntu Server)
  2. To renew expired users via sending SCRATCH CODE & verify the code with the user profile [later]

Users will be asked to send SMS to playSMS, and playSMS will handle it on its SMS Command to run a script that verify the SMS and commands Mikrotik to do something.
