Twilreapi /twil-reap-i/ (Twilio Rest API)

Build Status Test Coverage Maintainability

Twilreapi is an Open Source implementation of Twilio's REST API written in Rails. You can use Twilreapi as a drop-in replacement for Twilio and enqueue calls, send SMS etc.


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

Check the output of bin/setup and note down the Account SID and Auth Token.

Seeding the Database

To seed the database run ./bin/rails db:seed. To create an admin account specify the admin account permissions with ADMIN_ACCOUNT_PERMISSIONS. E.g.

$ ADMIN_ACCOUNT_PERMISSIONS=comma_separated_list_of_permissions ./bin/rails db:seed



Configuration is done using environment variables. See .env

Running Locally

Start the web server using foreman. Note this will read the environment variables from .env

$ bundle exec foreman start web

Background Processing

Twilreapi is queue agnostic. By default it will enqueue jobs using ActiveJob. The following background processing libraries are also supported and can be configured using environment variables.

Outbound Calls

In order to trigger outbound calls you can connect Twilreapi to Somleng.
