๐Ÿ’ช Bypass SMS 160 chars limits and send Star Wars intro as a single concatenated ๐Ÿ“œ

โ” About

Many SMS services and gateways support *"concatenated SMS" * (messages or messages over 160 characters).

This time, we'll show how our Java (picocli & Spring Boot) based cli, thanks to a nicely designed API make the sending of (very) long SMS look like a piece of ๐Ÿฐ.

๐Ÿ“‘ Existing services and gateways

In the wild, we can find two famous SMS API services :

Jasmin SMS is one of them... and it supports "Long Messages" :

"Supports concatenated (multipart) SMS contents (long SMS)"

OPT-SMS is a cli which aims is to simplify integrations & sms batch sending easier for any user who has an access to the API.

Our cli does not required any technical skill to perform usually not that easy tasks, for any kind of user on any kind of platform as it is a (Spring boot) Java based project.
