This is an experimental reimplementation of courtbot using python. It uses the oscn PyPI library and twilio.
- A twilio account
Install & Set up locally
pip install -r requirements.txt(if you get an error, make sure
postgresqlis installed, then add the folder containing pg_config to your path
cp .env-dist .envand put your own values into
python manage.py runserver
Use ngrok to test twilio callbacks
To test twilio callbacks, run ngrok to set up a public domain for your localhost:8000 ...
ngrok http 8000
... then use the public domain url for your number's Messaging "a messages comes in" webhook. E.g., http://34ae567a.ngrok.io/sms/twilio
Note: super annoying, but every time you restart ngrok you'll have to update
your twilio number's messaging webhook again, and you'll need to change your
ALLOWED_HOSTS to include the new ngrok host. Unless you pay for ngrok.
