What is Somleng?

Preface

This document assumes that you have a basic understanding of what Twilio is and how it works. If not, please go ahead and read about Twilio first.

Introduction

Somleng is an Open Source implementation of Twilio. Although Somleng currently only supports a subset of the features that Twilio supports it can be used in many cases as a drop-in replacement for Twilio.

How does it work?

Somleng's Twilreapi (Twilio REST API) is an Open Source implementation of Twilio's REST API. Although Twilreapi currently only supports a subset of Twilio's API endpoints, the endpoint that it does support are almost identical to the ones implemented by Twilio's REST API.

This means that you can use any of Twilio's Helper Libraries in your favourite programming language and with a few minor code changes your application can be talking to Somleng instead of Twilio.

Why would I want to use Somleng instead of Twilio?

Please see Somleng vs Twilio Comparison for a detailed comparision of Twilio vs Somleng and reasons why you may or may not want to choose Somleng instead of Twilio.
