courtbot-python

This is an experimental reimplementation of courtbot using python. It uses the oscn PyPI library and twilio.

Development

Requirements

  • python
  • A twilio account

Install & Set up locally

  1. pip install -r requirements.txt
  2. cp .env-dist .env and put your own values into .env
  3. 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. Unless you pay for ngrok.
