    Video chat is a great way to keep in touch with the people you care about or collaborate with others remotely. Perhaps you've always wanted to build your own video chat application but were unsure where to start. Well, you have come to the right place!

    In this tutorial, you will learn how to build your own video chat application using Twilio Programmable Video, Ruby, and JavaScript. The server-side part of the project will be built using Ruby and the Sinatra microframework, while the client side is going to be built with vanilla JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Sinatra is a lightweight, flexible framework for building Ruby applications. It is also a great place to get started if you are new to Ruby development.

    Neste tutorial, veremos como é fácil começar a criar chatbots para WhatsApp usando a API da Twilio para WhatsApp e a estrutura da Web Sinatra em Ruby. Aqui está um exemplo da conversa que vamos construir:

    5 ways to make HTTP requests in Ruby 5 ways to make http requests in Ruby

    Hello and welcome in this article! Today I’m going to show you five different ways to do HTTP requests in Ruby.

    Before we start writing code I want to tell you how I’m happy I wrote this tutorial. Ruby on Rails is my favourite framework in the world and as every obsessive person I tend to always use the things I love.

    Taking a step back to simple things as HTTP requests made me write and execute simple .rb files and it felt great to unleash the power of Ruby with my simple hands and not all the Rails magic that often secludes us from the basics of the language.

    And what’s even better about the classics is they work in all the more complex environments so I’ll show you here how to do it with your own .rb file but this also works in any Ruby based framework.

    That …

    5 façons de faire des requêtes HTTP en Ruby 5 façons de faire des requêtes HTTP en Ruby

    Bonjour et bienvenue dans cet article. Aujourd’hui nous allons voir ensemble comment faire des requêtes HTTP en Ruby de cinq façons différentes.

    Mais avant de nous plonger dans le code, je voulais juste prendre une minute pour partager avec vous ma joie d’avoir écrit ce tutoriel.

    Pour l’écriture de cet article, j’ai tout fait avec de simples fichiers .rbet je ne le savais pas mais ça m’avait manqué de m’éloigner de mon framework favori - RubyOnRails - et de toute sa magie et de revenir aux basiques de ce qu’est Ruby.

    Et le meilleur dans tout ça ? Les basiques fonctionnent aussi dans les cas plus complexes, donc je vous montrerai comment intégrer tout ça dans votre framework Ruby préféré en fin d’article.

    Prérequis

    Pour suivre ce tutoriel, vous aurez besoin de:

    • Ruby installé sur votre machine. J’utilise Ruby dans sa dernière version, actuellement 3.0.0 et je gère mes …

    Créer un répondeur avec Twilio et Ruby on Rails Créer un répondeur avec Twilio et Ruby On Rails

    Une façon utile et répandue d’utiliser Twilio est de créer un numéro de téléphone qui redirige vers notre numéro de téléphone réel. On peut ainsi donner ce numéro à nos contacts professionnels et gérer nos appels business depuis notre portable. Notre numéro personnel est ainsi masqué derrière notre numéro Twilio.

    Dans ce post je vais vous montrer comment créer un système de boîte vocale qui s’activera si vous êtes déjà en communication ou que vous ne prenez pas l’appel. Ce répondeur diffusera un message préenregistré, prendra le message de l’appelant et vous enverra un SMS avec un lien permettant d’y accéder. Encore plus simple que de devoir appeler sa boîte vocale.

    Avant de commencer : Comment Twilio gère les appels

    Lorsqu’un appel est émis vers votre numéro de téléphone Twilio, une requête HTTP est envoyée à une URL qui pointe vers un serveur web. Le serveur web reçoit et traite …

    Building Voicemail with Twilio and Ruby building-voicemail-twilio-ruby-on-rails

    One useful and common way to use Twilio is to create a phone number which forwards to your real phone. You can hand out the Twilio number to colleagues or customers and take business calls on your personal phone without worrying about handing out your real phone number. This also gives you a lot of options for how to handle these calls - you have the full power of Twilio at your disposal.

    In this post I'll show you how to create a voicemail system that will jump in when your cell number is busy, or when you don't answer the call. It will play a message to your caller, then record their message and text you a link to the recording when it's done.

    Primer: How Twilio Handles Calls

    When someone dials your Twilio number, an HTTP request is sent to a URL that you provide. The …

    Coding a Rails lookup SMS app for my grandparents Coding a Rails lookup SMS app for my grandparents

    #GiftOfCode is almost over but it’s never too late to participate!

    You don’t have to create a heavy app with 2K handwritten lines of code to make someone happy and I’m gonna prove it to you now with a small SMS service for my grandparents.

    My grandparents often have phone calls from numbers they don’t know and they often call back in the case one of the family members would have changed their phone number and not told them. But sometimes they end up paying extra fees for that.

    My SMS service will use lookup functionality from Twilio with the Ekata Reverse Phone add-on to tell them if calling back a specific number may endup in extra billing.

    Warning before we go: you can follow this tutorial from anywhere in the world but the Ekata Reverse Phone functionality will work as expected only in the U.S.
