Just felt like doing something quick with Twilio + Really like pranking people = Pranker!
What it does
You text a target number to the service, and it prank calls the target. Nuff said
How I built it
I used Python Flask for the backend and the Python Twilio REST Client for the Twilio stuff
Challenges I ran into
Ehh, actually more of a challenge was just running a public facing web server. Apparently my version of ngrok had sunsetted :/. So had to spend some time figuring that out
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Well, I had a couple of small projects I wanted to do this time. So 1 down, 2 more to go :)
What I learned
Honestly, I learned that no matter how quick you think a hack will be, it always ends up taking a couple of hours to get working the way you want.
What's next for Pranker
How about building an ML agent on the backend that tailors the responses to the target's frustration, MWAHAHA
