Batphone is an Asterisk Gateway Interface (AGI) library for Ruby. It is well-suited to simple bat-tasks, with a small learning curve. (I promise you‘ll spend more time figuring out AGI than batphone). It is also perfectly capable of making all your wildest AGI dreams come true. It won‘t get in your way.
exten => batphone,1,AGI(batphone.agi)
#!/usr/bin/ruby require 'agi' agi = AGI.new agi.answer agi.stream_file('batman_help_the_monkeys_are_everywhere', nil) begin # press pound to make them stop! r = agi.stream_file('tt-monkeys', '#') end while r.result != ?# agi.stream_file('POW', nil) agi.hangup
Gee, Batman, all you need is Ruby. You might want Asterisk too.
Get it from GitHub and put it somewhere batty.
sudo rake install
sudo ruby setup.rb
- 5xx errors span multiple lines and should be handled by the lib (probably an exception raised too)
- It might be nice to have convenience methods that match up with regular Asterisk Applications (commands), e.g. Playback, Background, etc.
- I‘m inclined to make an OpenStruct-like interface to the Asterisk environment, but I need to make sure there won‘t be any metaprogramming conflitcs

Holy red phones, Batman! Asterisk is about phones. Rubies are red. Batphones are really swell red phones.
No relation to batsman, though I think he‘s swell too.
