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".
