Tropo, node.js Have you been itching to try out Node.JS for a real-time communication app? Perhaps a voice application? Or a SMS or IM agent? Or a Twitter-bot? Did you read about our Node.js library for the Tropo Web API released back in October and think “That would be a cool way to learn Node.js!” You don’t have to wait any longer… our own Chris Matthieu of Voxeo Labs today launched a project he’s been working on in his spare time called “NodeFu that offers free hosting of Node.JS applications at: The beautiful thing is that NodeFu is an excellent platform to build Tropo apps that interact with users via voice, SMS, IM or Twitter. How to Get Started with NodeFu First, take a look at the NodeFu home page where the process is documented. curl -X POST -d "firstname.lastname@example.org" You will get an invite with a link to register a new NodeFu account. You start out by registering a new NodeFu application using another command-line curl command: That’s it! P.S.

mheadd/remoteagent - GitHub Real-Time Communications with Tropo and Node.js The other day, Jason Goecke wrote an awesome post about using Tropo with WebSockets. I was inspired by Jason’s work to try and replicate it with a slightly different kind of technology. I also wanted to use Node.js. I had come across the very cool faye Node.js library a while ago and wanted to try it out on a small project. Having now used faye for this project, I can tell you that I am amazed at how easy it is to use, and how powerful it is. Examine the code for the Bayeux server used in this example above – in less than 15 lines of code I was able to create a server that can act as a real-time DTMF relay between a phone application running in the Tropo cloud, and multiple clients who can consume that input. (Note – all of the code used in this example is available on GitHub.) To provide a bit more clarity and some contrast to the approach Jason used in his post, let’s talk about the Bayeux protocol and Comet servers.
