One of the teams at TheNextWeb hackathon this past weekend was kind enough to open source a node module to send SMS with the Sinch SMS API. (Shoutout to Mihir and Mikhail!) Here's an example of how to use it:
var sinchAuth = require('sinch-auth'); var sinchSms = require('sinch-messaging'); var auth = sinchAuth("your-app-key", "your-app-secret"); sinchSms.sendMessage("+16507141052", "Hello world!");
The above script will print an ID for the SMS. It will look like this:
You can use this ID to check the status of the SMS at any point like so...
...which will give you a response like so:
