Super-fast Twilio SMS response API

Project description

Fast Twilio SMS message response API

pyrowire is an API that handles all of the plumbing necessary to create an SMS message response project with Twilio. After installing pyrowire, all you have to do is decide what you want to do with the data that comes in to your web server. We’ve got the rest covered.

1-minute Installation & Setup

pyrowire can be installed and initialized via pip, and is best used with virtualenv. From the root directory of your project, run:

pip install pyrowire && pyrowire-init
This will install pyrowire, and copy into the root folder the following files:


ENV=(DEV|STAGING|PROD) [RUN=(web|worker)] python

Sample Application

Here’s what the sample app (from running pyrowire-init) looks like:

import pyrowire
import my_settings

# configure the pyrowire application

# all app.handler methods need to be annotated with the topic for which they process
# and take one kwarg, 'message_data'
def my_handler(message_data=None):

# all app.validator methods need to be annotated with the name of the validator
# and take one kwarg, 'message_data'
def my_validator(message_data=None):

if __name__ == '__main__':

As you can see, it’s rather straightforward; to start out you are given placeholders for both a handler and a validator. The handler is where you will write the business logic for your Twilio application. One or more validators can be added if needed, or removed altogether. See their respective sections below for more information.
