Phone call queuing and management for the Django web framework using an Asterisk server
django-asterisk is a reusable Django app for queuing and managing phone calls, inspired and based on django-mailer. It makes calls through the Management interface of an Asterisk server.
Add the django_asterisk app in settings.INSTALLED_APPS
Set the following variables in settings.py:
AST_HOST = 'localhost' AST_USER = 'django' AST_PASS = 'mysecret' AST_PRIO = 1 AST_TIMEOUT_ORIGINATE = 30 # sec AST_TIMEOUT_HANGUP = 120 # sec
Change the default passwords!!
- pyst (http://pyst.sf.net/)
- a working Asterisk server (see docs/asterisk for a sample config)
Supposing you have an object called ‘user’ with the ‘phone_number’ attribute, you can create and queue a call like this:
from django_asterisk.models import Call channel = 'SIP/%s@mysipprovider' % user.phone_number call = Call(channel=channel, extension=user.phone_number, context='django-out', caller_id='"Django Asterisk Test" <0123456789>', related_object=user) call.save()
You can later make the call from the admin, by selecting it and executing the “Make call” action.
