RapidSMS is a free and open source framework for building interactive SMS applications, which integrates tightly with Django to provide a rich reporting interface. It was created by the Innovation Team at UNICEF, and is under development by the RapidSMS Team.
RapidSMS is best installed via PyPi:
$ pip install rapidsms
The RapidSMS project skeleton is identical to the Django project skeleton, with a few of our settings added. To quickly spawn a new project, we've bundled a wrapper around django-admin.py:
$ rapidsms-admin.py startproject myproject
runrouter management command starts the router, sends and receives SMS (and other short messages) via the configurable backends:
$ python manage.py runrouter
Right now, RapidSMS isn't very well documented. We're working on that on the RapidSMS wiki, but you may find more useful information on the mailing list for the time being.
RapidSMS is free software, available under the BSD license.
