From concept to first edition in fewer steps

Build event-driven microservices with Node.js

Create scalable, production-grade, event-driven Twilio applications using Node.js. Innovate without worrying about stability. Iterate quickly. Use custom logic for Studio applications and IVR systems.

Integrate with 3rd-party endpoints

Integrate with any 3rd-party system by transforming and filtering your data using the power of Node.js and the npm ecosystem. Make external API requests with ease and set up webhooks to ingest data from Twilio products or external systems.

Your code on Twilio

Bring ideas to life quickly, whether you’re building powerful APIs, complex integrations, or adding custom logic to your IVRs. Let Twilio Functions handle the operational overhead so you can get to market faster.

Automatic scaling and transparent pricing

Serverless on Twilio automatically scales from zero to peak demands and features a pay-as-you-go business model to minimize costs for your organization.

exports.handler = async function(context, event, callback) {
  const client = context.getTwilioClient();
  const message = await client.messages.create({
    to: '+15558675310',
    from: '+15017122661',
    body: 'Hi there!'
  });
  callback(null, message.sid);
};

“You don’t have to comment out lines of code to explain what a function is doing. The Twilio code is really clear and easily configured.”
