Twilio SMS Ruby Chatbot

An example Twilio SMS Ruby chatbot integrated with Dialog Analytics. Built with twilio/twilio-ruby.

Getting started

Clone this repository and run bundle install

Create an account on https://app.dialoganalytics.com, grab your Dialog API token and bot ID.

Set environment variables in .env:

DIALOG_API_TOKEN=...
DIALOG_BOT_ID=...

Get your Twilio Account SID and Auth Token from http://www.twilio.com/console

Get a Twilio phone number from http://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers, create a Programmable SMS service and set the inbound settings request url to the endpoint on which this server will be listening: this should be something like https://f562681e.ngrok.io/sms.

Local development: When developping locally, use a service like https://ngrok.com to expose a server running on your machine.

$ ngrok http 4567

Start the bot:

$ ruby bot.rb

Send a SMS to the phone number you defined previously. Messages will be sent to Dialog's API.
