Rails scheduled SMS sender

I want send an SMS each 5 minutes to my users. At the moment, my
application sends an SMS during the creation of an account.

users_controller.rb

def create
      @user = User.new(user_params)
      if @user.save
        @user.send_activation_email
        @user.send_daily_sms
        flash[:info] = "Veuillez contrôler votre boîte mail pour

activer votre compte."
redirect_to root_url
else
render ‘new’
end
end

# user.rb
def send_daily_sms

    # put your own credentials here
    account_sid = '**********************'
    auth_token = '**********************'

    # set up a client to talk to the Twilio REST API
    @client = Twilio::REST::Client.new account_sid, auth_token

    @client.account.messages.create({
    :from => '**********',
    :to => '***********',
    :body => 'Salut',
    })
  end

I already have scheduled mails working in my project by doing this :

schedule.rb

every :day, :at => '12pm' do
  rake "email_sender_daily"
end
# My task
task :email_sender_daily => :environment do |_, args|
  User.find_each do |user|
    UserMailer.daily_mail(user).deliver_now if user.daily == true
  end
end
# My UserMailer
def daily_mail(user)
@user = user
mail to: user.email, subject: "Mail journalier"
end

I’m showing you this because, with the UserMailer, I know how to access
it
from an other file. Here, I’d like to do the exactly the same for SMS,
but
how can I access the method that is in my Model ? If not, where can I
put
this method to be able to access it from my rake task ?

Hello Marco, as you can see, you can send email or sms in the same way.
The
only thing you can do to avoid repetition, you should move the sms logic
to
a service class and instantiate it in the controller and in a rake task
to
send it from time to time.

I hope I helped you somehow.

Thanks for your answer,

The thing is, the mails being sent with the scheduled jobs are not in a
Controller, they are in the UserMailer and they’re easy to access via
the
UserMailer.daily_mail(user).deliver_now

What I’d like to do, is having a similar thing with SMS. Maybe create a
SMSController. The thing is I don’t know how to access a method of a
Controller from outside.

Here is the update of my post :

EDIT:

I’m able to send SMS now, but weird thing, it only sends to one user,
even
if I have 3 users.

My method in User.rb

def send_daily_sms(user)

    @user = user

    # put your own credentials here
    account_sid = 'AC2556499574e7111844811bff28e73061'
    auth_token = '0593dd8cc063cfbe704bc73a8f83fbba'

    # set up a client to talk to the Twilio REST API
    @client = Twilio::REST::Client.new account_sid, auth_token

    @client.account.messages.create({
    :from => '+14234350632',
    :to => '+' + @user.phone,
    :body => 'SMS journalier',
    })
  end

My task :

task :email_sender_monthly => :environment do |_, args|
User.find_each do |user|
user.send_daily_sms if user.daily_sms == true && user.phone.present?
end
end

I tried to use the gem Textris
to
see if using this would work (they have Twilio API built-in function).

My UserTexter :

class UserTexter < Textris::Base
  default from: "Our Team <+14234350632>"

  def send_daily_sms(user)
    @user = user
    phone = "+" + @user.phone
    puts phone
    text :to => phone
  end
end

The thing is, I have this in the log :

+41798352547
rake aborted!
Twilio::REST::RequestError: The 'To' number 41798352547 is not a 

valid
phone number.

But as you can see, the number printed in the log is right, and I was
doing
quite the same when I was using the method in User.rb (it was sending
SMS
then, but only to one user).

Don’t know what to do.
