`Parsnip` is a basic python interface to allow the sending of web texts via the main 4 Irish mobile operators websites. It is influenced by [cabbage](http://cabbagetexter.com/), a popular `php` implementation.

* **Meteor** : [http://mymeteor.ie](https://www.mymeteor.ie/mymeteorapi/index.cfm)
* **O2** : [http://o2online.ie](https://messaging.o2online.ie/smscenter_send.osp)

##Install##

pip install -e git+https://github.com/timmyomahony/python-parsnip.git#egg=parsnip

##Usage##

import parsnip
texter = parsnip.get_webtexter("Meteor", "0851111111", "1234")
texter.login()
texter.send("Heyo", ["0866666666", "0877777777", "0863333333"])
print texter.get_remaining_webtexts()
255
texter.logout()

* `get_webtexter(operator, phone_number, online_pin)` : is a factory method which returns an instance of `Webtexter`.
* A webtexter instance has the following methods:
* `login()` : login to remote operator site
* `logout()` : clear cookies and perform logout on remote operator site
* `send(message, recipients)` : sends a web text to the provided recipients, where `recipient` is either a comma separated string of phone numbers, or a list of phone numbers.
* `get_remaining_webtexts` : returns an integer

##Features##

* For messages that have more characters then the provider allows (i.e. sending a message greater than 160 characters on Three), the message will be broken into smaller chunks and sent separately. The same can be said for recipients : if there are more recipients then the provider handles, they are split up and the message numerous times

##TODO##

* incorporate group texting
* add ellipses to chunked messages
