A module for using the Twilio REST API and generating valid TwiML.


Install from PyPi using pip

pip install twilio

Getting Started

Getting started with the Twilio API couldn't be easier. Create a Twilio REST client to get started. For example, the following code makes a call using the Twilio REST API.

Making a Call

    from import TwilioRestClient()

    client = TwilioRestClient()
    call = client.calls.make(to="9991231234", from_="9991231234",
    print call.length
    print call.sid

Generating TwiML

To control phone calls, your application need to output TwiML. Use :class:twilio.twiml..Response to easily create such responses.

    from twilio import twiml

    r = twiml.Response()"monkey.mp3", loop=5)
    print str(r)
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Response><Play loop="5">monkey.mp3</Play><Response>
