Quick Start

HTTP SMS is an open-source service that converts your android phone into an SMS Gateway so you can send and receive SMS messages using an intuitive HTTP API.

Authentication

API requests to HTTP SMS are authenticated using API keys in the x-api-key header. Any request that doesn't include an API key will return a 401 (Unauthorized) response.
You can get your API key from the dashboard at https://httpsms.com/settings

Install the Android App

To send and receive SMS messages using your android phone, you will need to download and install our android app on your phone so it can be triggered to send an SMS message when you make a request to the HTTP SMS API.

Send an SMS

To send an SMS message using an android phone, send an authenticated POST request to the https://api.httpsms.com/v1/messages/send endpoint.

Install the library

The best way to interact with our API is to use one of our official libraries:
Go
# install the go package using the "go get" command
go get github.com/NdoleStudio/httpsms-go
