I just wanted to build something fun and data driven
What it does
It is a phone number that can mimic a person in social situations. For now, it tells jokes, calls you on command and gives you the definition of slang words discreetly.
How I built it
Twilio Python SDK , twitteR, some cheeky python functions
Challenges I ran into
GETTING IT TO SEND ME A TEXT VIA WEBHOOK.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I got it to work via webhook :).
What I learned
Ngrok is super super cool Heroku takes forever to set up Python is so fun and easy to use. Natural language processing isn't even that bad.
What's next for PhonePal
