We wanted to be able to send SMS text messages from the command line, using a VoIP backed solution.

What it does

Sends and receives text messages. You can add a new number. Switch through conversations.

How we built it

We used critical thinking and problem solving skills. We used python as the language and Twilio as the backend API. Vim was the text editor used.

Challenges we ran into

We had a bug of duplicating messages in the conversation window. It was fixed after talking with a mentor. We also ran into some layout issues, that were fixed after looking at our working examples.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We created a working application. We can now send and receive SMS text messages from the terminal. Creating a viable ncurses interface.

What we learned

How to create ncurses environments for terminal applications.

What's next for TermText

We want to add the functionality to add number to the "phone book".
