Twilio backend for the RapidSMS project. Uses python-twilio to communicate with Twilio.

Build Status


  • Incoming (MO) and Outgoing (MT) SMS support.
  • Support for Twilio’s status callback


  • Python 2.7 or Python 3.3+
  • Django 1.7+
  • RapidSMS v0.18.0+

Future versions: We currently support Django 1.8 with no pending deprecation warnings in our 1.0 release. We expect each future point release to similarly support the next version of Django, so our 1.1 release would support Django 1.9 with no pending deprecation warnings. Support for older Django versions may be dropped when the period of ‘mainstream support’ expires. See Django’s supported versions documentation for those timelines.


rapidsms-twilio requires Django >= 1.7 and Python >= 2.7.

To install from PyPi:

pip install rapidsms-twilio
