Utilities for Django developers using Nexmo's APIs

Project description

DJ-Nexmo

PyPI version Build Status Coverage Status

The Nexmo API is awesome - but there are some problems that developers using Nexmo need to solve again and again. This Django app provides Django-specific functionality on top of the Nexmo Client Library for Python! Currently it contains:

  • A decorator for validating and re-combining SMS message parts.
  • Template filters for rendering phone numbers in international and national formats.

How To Install It

Currently, dj-nexmo only supports Python 3.4+, and Django 2.0+. We may backport to Django 1.x, but we have no intention of backporting to Python 2.

First, pip install dj-nexmo

Add "djnexmo" to INSTALLED_APPS in your settings.

Run python manage.py migrate djnexmo to create the necessary models.

Configuration

NEXMO_API_KEY

This optional setting should be set to your Nexmo API Key, which you can obtain from the dashboard.

NEXMO_API_SECRET

This optional setting should be set to your Nexmo API Secret, which you can obtain from the dashboard.

NEXMO_SIGNATURE_SECRET

This optional setting should be set to your Nexmo Signature Secret, which you can obtain by contacting Nexmo support. You will need this setting if you wish to validate incoming SMS.

NEXMO_SIGNATURE_METHOD

This optional setting should be set to your Nexmo signing method, which you should obtain from Nexmo support when you obtain your Nexmo signature secret.

NEXMO_APPLICATION_ID

This optional setting should be set to the ID of a Nexmo Voice application.

NEXMO_PRIVATE_KEY

This optional setting should be set to your Nexmo Voice application's private key, or a path to a file containing your private key.

Using the Nexmo Client

dj-nexmo configures a Nexmo Client object from the settings above. You can use it by importing it from the djnexmo package:

from djnexmo import client

client.send_sms({
    'to': '447700900301',
    'from': '447700900414',
    'text': 'Hello from DJ Nexmo!'
})

Incoming SMS

dj-nexmo provides a view decorator which will ensure your webhook view is only called once all the parts of an SMS are available.

# This will automatically check the signature of the incoming request.
# The view will only be called once all parts of the SMS have arrived.
@sms_webhook
def sms_registration(request):
    # Your parsed & merged SMS message will be available as `request.sms`:
    sms = request.sms

    # Don't do any long processing here - you should return a 200 response as soon as possible.
    ...

    return HttpResponse("OK")

Formatting Phone Numbers

dj-nexmo adds a couple of template filters for formatting phone numbers, wrapping the awesome phonenumbers library.

{% load phonenumbers %}

International: {{ "447700900486" | international }} => +44 7700 900486
Local Format: {{ "447700900486" | national }}       => 07700 900486

Coming Soon:

  • A management command for clearing the database of old message parts where not all parts were received.
  • A decorator to validate other webhooks from the Nexmo API.
