A package for sending SMS messages using the PSWinCom SMS Gateway.
A Python interface to the [PSWinCom SMS Gateway](http://pswin.com/english/products/gateway).
The pswinpy package is distributed through PyPI as both egg, Windows and source. THIS IS NOT YET TRUE!!
To use this package, you will need sign up for a Gateway account with PSWinCom. Demo account are available.
This piece of code demonstrates how to send a simple SMS message:
from pswinpy import API api = API(“myUsername”, “myPassword”) api.sendSms(4712345678, “Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government!”)
Receiver and message text are the two mandatory properties when sending a message. You may specify additional properties by using named arguments.
For instance this is how you would specify a sender:
api.sendSms(4712345678, “It’s just a flesh wound.”, sender=”BlackKnight”)
Properties currently supported are:
- TTL - time to live in minutes
- tariff - the amount (in local currency as cents/”ører”) to charge the receiver
- serviceCode - service code for sending GAS messages. Requires that tariff is set. See [wiki](http://wiki.pswin.com/CPA-Goods-and-Services.ashx) for details.
- deliveryTime - a datetime object specifying when to send the message
The package is set to use a particular PSWinCom SMS Gateway by default. The host can be changed globaly by setting the host class property on HttpSender:
HttpSender.host = “some.other.host.com”
For testing purposes the API provides a couple of modes you can set globally to control how the library works.
Mode.test = True
This code is free to use under the terms of the MIT license.
