    Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code

    Keeping personal information private is as important as ever, since information thievery and unwanted contact (content warning: harassment, sexual harassment) have become more common. When ordering food online, however, keeping your information private can be difficult.

    For example, your driver may need to contact you regarding changes to your order or if they need help getting directions to your door. Instead of giving out your personal number to the delivery app, why not give a proxy number that can provide all that information instead?

    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to configure a proxy number that will provide delivery instructions with Twilio’s no-code solution, Twilio Studio! You’ll be serving up a menu that delivery drivers can interact with to get a gate code, directions to your place, and to call you (via a proxy number) in case there’s a change to your order.

    For this tutorial, you will …

    SMS Forwarding and Responding Using Twilio SMS and Python SMS Forwarding and Responding Using Twilio SMS and Python

    An SMS proxy service uses an additional phone number to serve as an intermediary between two or more parties. One of the main reasons to use a proxy to forward messages is to facilitate communication without disclosing phone numbers. As a result, an SMS proxy encourages reporting, collaboration, and discussions without the risk of revealing a private phone number.

    In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Twilio’s Programmable Messaging API to proxy messages. This tutorial includes 2 different iterations of the application. The first will cover how to forward an SMS message, while the second will give an example of how to respond to the message.

    Prerequisites

    To continue with this tutorial, you will need:

    Proxy your phone number with Twilio Programmable Voice and Twilio Functions Header

    Using Twilio's Super Network, you can quickly buy phone numbers from around the world. You can even specify a specific area code to buy a phone number that is local to a certain state, territory, or region.

    With Twilio Voice, you can quickly integrate voice communication into your applications. For the application in this tutorial, you'll use Twilio phone numbers, Twilio Voice, and Twilio Functions to create a proxy phone number!

    What do I mean by a proxy phone number? Before explaining that, I will discuss a similar concept. In web development, there's a concept of "reverse proxies". When you send HTTP requests to a reverse proxy, the reverse proxy forwards the traffic to a web server on a private network. This way the web server still serves a website but isn't exposed directly to the internet adding benefits like security, performance enhancements, and much more.

    Similarly, …

    Configurer une application React avec un serveur proxy Node.js react-node-js-serveur-proxy-express

    Create react app est un excellent outil pour avoir une application React qui tourne en un rien de temps. Mais c’est un peu plus brouillon quand il s’agit de créer ou de prototyper une application nécessitant un composant côté serveur - comme la création de token d'accès pour Twilio Video ou Chat.

    J'ai trouvé qu'il était plus facile de travailler sur un serveur au sein du même projet, afin de pouvoir tout démarrer avec une seule commande.

    À la fin de cet article, vous aurez appris à configurer un serveur Express qui fonctionne avec une application React.

    Si vous êtes pressés, vous pouvez directement aller voir le code sur GitHub.

    Comment ça marche ?

    Il existe une option que vous pouvez définir dans le package.json de Create React App. Elle permet de rediriger les requêtes qui ne sont pas au format text/html vers un autre back-end.

    Build a Node.js Proxy Server in Under 10 minutes! header - Build a Node.js Proxy Server in Under 10 minutes!

    We have all heard the term “proxy”. It might sound like it’s some kind of portal to a new dimension from the Matrix movies, but it turns out it’s very real...and very useful!

    In a nutshell, a proxy is an intermediary application which sits between two (or more) services and processes/modifies the requests and responses in both directions. This sounds complicated, I know, but let’s try with a simpler analogy:

    Imagine you meet someone from Spain, but you don’t speak Spanish. What do you do? Well, you remember that your friend Santiago knows both Spanish and English and can translate for you.

    people talking to each other in different languages asking about the other person's favorite music

    The process goes like this:

    1. You tell something to Santiago in English
    2. Santiago translates it to Spanish in his head and says it in Spanish to your new friend
    3. Your new friend replies back to Santiago in Spanish
    4. Santiago then translates it in his head and tells you …

    Créer un serveur proxy Node.js en moins de 10 minutes ! Créer un serveur proxy Node.js en moins de 10 minutes !

    Nous avons tous entendu le terme « proxy ». On pourrait croire qu'il s'agit d'une sorte de portail vers une nouvelle dimension tout droit sorti des films Matrix, mais il s'avère que c'est très réel... et très utile !

    En résumé, un proxy est une application intermédiaire qui se trouve entre deux services (ou plus) et traite/modifie les requêtes et les réponses dans les deux sens. Cela semble compliqué, je le sais, mais essayons une analogie plus simple.

    Imaginez le scénario suivant : vous rencontrez quelqu'un venant d'Espagne, mais vous ne parlez pas espagnol. Que faites-vous ? Eh bien, vous vous souvenez que votre ami Santiago connaît à la fois l'espagnol et le français et peut traduire pour vous.

    des gens qui se parlent dans des langues différentes et qui demandent à l'autre sa musique préférée

    Le processus se présente comme suit :

    1. Vous dites quelque chose à Santiago en français
    2. Santiago le traduit en espagnol dans sa tête et le dit en espagnol à votre nouvel …
