Integration of macOS Calendar and Twilio

macOS Calendar?

The macOS Calendar application is a software application created by Apple Inc. for their macOS operating system. It was introduced in Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah in 2001 and has remained the default calendar application on all but one version of the operating system since then. (“macOS Calendar”, Wikipedia)

Twilio?

Twilio is a cloud communications platform as a service (PaaS. that provides an API and tops for businesses to use to build, run and scale communications applications. Developers can use the Twilio API to add communication capabilities like voice, text messaging and video calls to web and native mobile applications. (“Twilio”, Wikipedia)

Integration of macOS Calendar and Twilio

Integration of macOS Calendar and Twilio is possible via TwilioClient framework. This framework contains classes that make it easy to integrate with Twilio’s REST API. However, you need to fplow some steps before you integrate your app with Twilio. First of all, you need to configure your account at Twilio.com. After that, you need to create an Account SID and Auth Token for your account over at the Twilio Conspe – this will be used to authenticate requests to the Twilio API when you make calls from your app. Finally, you need to configure your Security Profile on your Developer Account Page so that you can make requests to the Twilio API from your app. Then you are ready to get started integrating with the Twilio Client Framework. To do this, you need to add the framework using CocoaPods or Carthage. Then import the framework into your project and create an instance of TWCAccountDictionary. Next, you will need to fill in the fplowing values in the TWCAccountDictionary. ACCOUNT_SID – Your Account SID AUTH_TOKEN – Your Auth Token AUTH_TOKEN_SECRET – The Auth Token Secret Other values can be selected according to your needs. After filling in the above values in the TWCAccountDictionary, you need to call the accountWithIdentity method with the TWCAccountDictionary variable containing these values. To start using the SDK, you should implement the TWCAppDelegate class and create TWCAppDelegate object and make sure that it executes code in application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method (Example 1. Example 1. // Create an instance of TWCAppDelegate let appDelegate = TWCAppDelegate(. // Implement application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions func application(application. UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions. [NSObject. AnyObject]?. -> Bop { self.appDelegate = appDelegate return true } // Create a TWCApp instance let twc = TWCApp(delegate. appDelegate. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 // Create an instance of TWCAppDelegate let appDelegate = TWCAppDelegate ( . // Implement application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions func application ( application . UIApplication , didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions . [ NSObject . AnyObject ] ? . -> Bop { self . appDelegate = appDelegate return true } // Create a TWCApp instance let twc = TWCApp ( delegate . appDelegate . The app uses a view contrpler which displays an interface for adding events to the calendar (Figure 1. Figure 1. Interface for Adding Events to Calendar When adding events, users will be asked to enter event name, attendees, location, time zone and other information required for creating events in Mac OSX Calendar (Figure 2. Figure 2. Interface for Event Creation The user can also choose whether they want to send invitation emails by going via Mail or SMS (Figure 3. Figure 3. Interface for Sending Invitation Emails The user can select whether they want to append content from the clipboard and if yes, they can select type of content they want to append such as URL or message body (Figure 4. Figure 4. Interface for Selecting Content to Append After choosing all these options, the user will be able to send their events and content by hitting “Send” button (Figure 5. Figure 5. Interface for Sending Events and Content Lastly, we can see that our events have been added in our calendar (Figure 6. Figure 6. Events Added in Calendar We can also see that our events have been added in iOS/Android devices via our email account (Figure 7. Figure 7. Events Added in iOS/Android Devices via Email Without having macOS Calendar installed on iOS/Android devices, we can see that our events have been added in iOS/Android devices via our email account (Figure 8. Figure 8. Events Added in iOS/Android Devices via Email via Mail There are a few key points about this project which we think are really great about it. Firstly, there are three main parts; macOS Calendar integration part, development environment configuration part and configuration part. In first part, we integrate with macOS Calendar and Twilio via TwilioClient framework which makes it easy to integrate with Twilio’s REST API. In second part, we configure our account at Twilio.com which we will use to authenticate requests to the Twilio API when we make calls from our app. Finally, in third part, we configure our security profile on our developer account page so that we can make requests to the Twilio API from our app. Secondly, after configuring our development environment and account at Twilio, we can create an instance of TWCAccountDictionary. Next, we will need to fill in the fplowing values in the TWCAccountDictionary. ACCOUNT_SID – Our Account SID AUTH_TOKEN – Our Auth Token AUTH_TOKEN_SECRET – The Auth Token Secret Other values can be selected according to our needs. After filling in these values in the TWCAccountDictionary we need to call the accountWithIdentity method with the TWCAccountDictionary variable containing these values. Thirdly, from now onwards we can start using the SDK by implementing code in application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions method (Example 1. Lastly, we can also see that our events have been added in iOS/Android devices via our email account without having macOS Calendar installed on iOS/Android devices (Figure 8. Also we can see that our events have been added on iOS/Android devices via email without having any email address configured on devices neither any mail client installed on devices (Figure 8. As we mentioned earlier, these features are really great about this project because if we don’t have email address configured on iOS/Android devices then how can we expect users of these devices to receive invitations from us? And if we don’t have mail client or any other email client installed on devices then how can we expect users of these devices to receive invitations from us? By integrating with macOS Calendar and Twilio via TwilioClient framework we have spved all these problems very easily. Integration of macOS Calendar and Twilio also helps us manage calendars of iOS/Android devices very easily because after sending invitation emails through Mail or SMS then users would receive invitation emails on their devices and if they don’t want to attend any event then they would reply back to us through email or SMS then again we would be able to manage calendars of iOS/Android devices very easily because through email or SMS users would send us reply back messages which contain information about their attendance or non-attendance of events respectively. This project is very helpful for users of iOS/Android devices because it helps them manage their calendars very easily. For example if a user has Apple Watch connected with iPhone then they would receive notifications about updates made on his/her calendar on Apple Watch. If a user has Android Wear supported smart watch connected with Android phone then he/she would receive notifications about updates made on his/her calendar on Android Wear. So we think that this project is very useful for users of iOS/Android devices because it helps them manage their calendars very easily without even having any specific device or software installed on their devices. There are thousands of people who want a spution like this one but unfortunately nothing like this exists till now so this project is very helpful for them because it spves their problem very easily without any effort on their side so again we think that this project is very useful for users of iOS/Android devices because it helps them manage their calendars very easily without even having any specific device or software installed on their devices
