Dana - The Stream Gatekeeper

A React based front-end demo for Asterisk's SFU capabilities - designed to show how you'd build a solution using modern JavaScript tooling such as React

You'll need Node.js installed on your dev environment and prferably Yarn over npm.

This project was bootstrapped with Create React App, and utilises Material-UI and JsSIP




yarn start

Runs the app in the development mode.
Open http://localhost:3000 to view it in the browser.

The page will reload if you make edits.
You will also see any lint errors in the console.

Build for production

yarn build

Builds the app for production to the build folder.
It correctly bundles React in production mode and optimizes the build for the best performance.

The build is minified and the filenames include the hashes.
Your app is ready to be deployed!

Asterisk Requirements

You will require your own Asterisk server and to place your asterisk server details into the settings page of the app (/settings) These include your Name, a SIP URI that represents your extension, the password for your extension and of course the WSS URI which probably looks like wss://

Of course, any room name you enter is just an extension in Asterisk. So you'll need to change the input for a select box if you have predefined list of extensions or allow for any room name to be used within your Asterisk Dialplan.

If you want to get a video (and audio) echo of yourself back then you can use the StreamEcho Dialplan application - in this example stream_echo is what you'd place in the "Join" input box inside Dana.

exten => stream_echo,1,Answer()
same = n,StreamEcho(4)
same = n,Hangup()

or for an actual video conference you'd use Confbridge - in this example my_video_conference is the extension name you'd place in the "Join" input box

exten = my_video_conference,1,Confbridge(MYCONF,default_bridge,default_user,sample_user_menu)

This relies on also having the defaults setup inside confbridge.conf, check out the config sample in the Asterisk source code for those values.

You'll need Asterisk to be able to accept WebRTC connections so follow the guide on the Asterisk Wiki to enable that. When setting up your WebRTC extensions you'll also need to set some specific SFU settings on them

You can’t perform that action at this time.
