Track channels through Asterisk Management Interface (AMI)

Project description

# Cacofonisk

Cacofonisk is a framework that connects to the Asterisk PBX, listens to events
on the Asterisk Management Interface (AMI) and tracks the status of calls
currently in progress in Asterisk.

Cacofonisk takes a stream of AMI events as input and uses these to keep track
of the channels currently active in Asterisk and how they are related. When
something interesting happens to one of the channels, it will call a method on
a call state Reporter with interesting information about the call, like who is
in the call, and a unique identifier.

This data can then be used to send webhooks regarding a call, to notify a
person who is being called, or to log calls being performed.

## Status

This product is actively being developed and used at VoIPGRID.

## Usage

### Requirements

- Python >= 3.4
- Panoramisk 1.x
- Asterisk >= 12

### Installation

Cacofonisk is available on Pypi so you can easily install it with pip:

$ pip install cacofonisk

To install the dependencies from source:

$ python3 install

### Running

To run Cacofonisk, you will need two things: a Runner and a Reporter.

A Runner is a class which is responsible for passing AMI events to the
Cacofonisk. Two runners are included: an AmiRunner (which connects to the
Asterisk Management Interface) and a FileRunner (which imports AMI events from
a JSON file).

A Reporter is a class which takes the interesting data from Cacofonisk and does
awesome things with it. You can find various Reporters in the `examples`

To create your own reporter, you can extend the BaseReporter class and
implement your own event handlers, like so:

from cacofonisk import AmiRunner, BaseReporter

class ReportAllTheThings(BaseReporter):

def on_b_dial(self, caller, targets):
target_channels = [ for target in targets]
caller_number = caller.caller_id.num
print("{} is now calling {}".format(
caller_number, ', '.join(target_channels),

def on_up(self, caller, target):
target_number = target.caller_id.num
caller_number = caller.caller_id.num
print("{} is now in conversation with {}".format(caller_number, target_number))

def on_hangup(self, caller, reason):
caller_number = caller.caller_id.num
print("{} is no longer calling (reason: {})".format(caller_number, reason))

reporter = ReportAllTheThings()
runner = AmiRunner(['tcp://username:password@'], reporter)

This reporter can then be passed to a Runner of your choice to process AMI

For more information about the parameters of the reporter, please see the docs
in BaseReporter.

You can also listen for
using the `on_user_event` function. This can be used to pass additional data
from Asterisk to your Cacofonisk application.

#### Running the tests

To run the test suite:

$ python3 -m unittest
