CLI for whatsapp
[Disclaimer] This is not a usable solution. I will not be able to provide any support.
- You cannot initiate chat with users from whom you have not received a notification in the recent past. This is a pushbullet limitation as it uses reply to notification to send messages. I need to explore on using whatsapp web instead of pushbullet.
This CLI uses Pushbullet APIs to receive and send messages.
Pushbullet App must be installed on your phone.
Pushbullet API token can be generated from here
You must be getting whatsapp notifications on your device for this to work.
To be able to send messages you need to receive at least one message after starting the application for seeding the conf (default location ~/.whatsapp-cli/conf).
Tested with python2.7
