sinatra-twilio

This is a library for creating simple web apps to handle incoming SMSes/Calls with Sinatra using a nice DSL.

Installation

Using Bundler

gem 'sinatra-twilio', :require => 'sinatra/twilio'

Not using bundler

Run:

gem install sinatra-twilio

Then in you Sinatra app, add the following lines after you require “sinatra”:

require 'sinatra/twilio'

A totally contrived and un-tested example

require "sinatra"
require "sinatra/twilio"

callers = %w[+15551234567]
pin     = "1234"

respond "/call" do
  addSay "Welcome caller."

  if callers.include? params[:From]
    addRedirect "/allowed_call"
  else
    addRedirect "/disallowed_call"
  end
end

respond "/allowed_call" do
  addPlay "/latest_message.mp3"
end

respond "/disallowed_call" do
  gather = Twilio::Gather.new(:action => "/authenticate")
  gather.addSay "Please enter your PIN now:"
  append gather

  addSay "You did not enter a pin. Good bye!"
  addHangup
end

respond "/authenticate" do
  if params[:Digits] == pin
    addRedirect "/allowed_call"
  else
    addRedirect "/disallowed_call"
  end
end

get "/latest_message.mp3" do
  # Assuming we have an ORM...
  send_file Message.last.path, :stream => true
end

Contributing to sinatra-twilio

  • Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet

  • Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it

  • Fork the project

  • Start a feature/bugfix branch

  • Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution

  • Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
