Welcome to the rubynokii wiki
by Thyagarajan Shanmugham

gratitude and special thanks to
pkot,dforsi oftopik at #gnokii room on irc and all the members of the gnokii development team.

RubyNokii is the ruby extension for Gnokii. RubyNokii intends to serve the ruby development community.RubyNokii facilitates for those ruby application to have sms facility without demanding internet.RubyNokii is the project which exposes the api’s which are written in C code of Gnokii to the ruby world. RubyNokii 0.1.1 is more of a demonstration of ruby extension which is wired to gnokii engine.

Before cooking the meal, few arrangement of the cooking apparatus is need. Analogically here i mean gnokii as a cooking apparatus, installing and testing the gnokii engine is the first task and to be called step 0.Please go through www.gnokii.org regarding with the installation,configuration of gnokii and kindly take note of the supported mobile phones from gnokii wiki at www.gnokii.org .Some phones like Nokia 6110 Navigator only supports one way of communication, with this we can only send sms but can not receive, I have also tested Sony Erricson w 700i works for both sending and receiving sms.

I would suggest the reader to compile the gnokii engine from source. In ubuntu , one needs two packages namely md4 and flex installed before compilation of the gnokii source. The url at http://www.developershome.com/sms/installGnokii.asp is a good introduction for compiling gnokii from source and the url at www.gnokii.org is cool for configuration. Kindly test the gnokii in the command line, without which rubynokii will never work.

After making sure of gnokii works in the command line, now spicing with rubynokii preparation. Before proceeding any further, please make sure you are installed with ruby and git. Get a clone copy of rubynokii from github.com by issuing the following command ,finally compile it to a shared object as follows

$cd
$cd projectdir
$pwd
~/projectdir
$git clone git://github.com/thyagarajan/rubynokii.git
$cd rubynokii
$ruby extconf.rb
$make

you will find a new file by name rubynokii.so compiled as a shared object. This is the file which exposes the api’s of gnokii to the ruby world.
There are four stages to operate rubynokii ,ie 0) include the rubynokii and instantiate the class BaseChildClass under RubyNokiiMod Module. 1)initialize the mobile phone 2)do activity(say sending/receiving sms) 3)close the relevant ports and quit.

Let me put it in this way by using irb,

step a:

first include the rubynokii shared object by using require command

irb(main):001:0> require ‘rubynokii’
=> true

step b:

instantiate an instance variable this_instance to class BaseChildClass under RubyNokiiMod

irb(main):002:0> this_instance = RubyNokiiMod::BaseChildClass.new
=> #

step c:

initiate the phone by issuing the businit command to this_instance
irb(main):003:0> this_instance.businit

and the debug output of the above command is something like this

Orphaned line: There are few main models that should make use of the certain drivers.

step d:

Sending sms with this_instance takes a tupple value as arguments for the method sendsms. argv0 should be the message and argv1 should be the mobile phone number in the international mobile phone nmber format ex ‘+919XXXXXXXXX’ where X denotes a number.Please replace all these X’s with valid numbers.
