    How to Create a Landing Page with Laravel, Vue.js, and SendGrid How to Create a Landing Page with Laravel, Vue.js, and SendGrid

    Note: If you cloned the repository, make sure that you add your Twilio Account SID, Auth Token, and phone number to the .env file in the root directory of the project. You will also need to run composer install to install existing dependencies for the project.

    How to Send an SMS with Mezzio PHP Framework How to Send an SMS with Mezzio PHP Framework

    Whether we’re voting for our favorite candidate on shows such as X Factor, or receiving two-factor authentication codes to log in to services like MailChimp and GitLab, SMS are virtually ubiquitous in modern life. Not only do they make communication in life and work much easier, it also doesn’t take a lot of code to send them either.

    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a simplistic API that can send an SMS using PHP’s Mezzio framework and Twilio’s PHP SDK.

    Once completed, you will be able to send a POST request to the API’s default endpoint, supplying the phone number to send the message to, and the message to send. If the message was successfully sent, then a JSON response will be returned showing a number of details about the sent SMS. If the SMS was not able to be sent, then an appropriate JSON response will …
