I am developing a website with Ruby that will integrate SMS messaging.
Let’s say the site is called http://www.example.com for clarity sake.
The primary function of example.com will be accepting incoming sms
messages and then posting these messages to a page on the site. So,
let’s say Jane Doe texts, “This is cool”, to some number, ultimately
“This is cool” will post to a page on www.example.com. The only
stipulation that example.com needs is that it will have to handle a
large amount of sms messages
Doing some research over the last few days it seems like only viable way
to pull this off is by accessing a SMS gateway. I just want to make
sure that accessing a SMS gateway is the best alternative before
starting a project that will take awhile to complete.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
