.NET (C#) Helper

The Plivo .NET SDK makes it simpler to integrate communications into your .NET applications using the Plivo REST API. Using the SDK, you will be able to make voice calls, send SMS and generate Plivo XML to control your call flows.

Supported .NET versions: This SDK was written targeting at .NET Standard 1.3, and thus works with .NET Framework 4.6+ and .NET Core 1.0+. Check here to know about all the other supported platforms.

Please note that this is the latest version. If you are looking for the legacy version, you can get it here.

Prerequisites

Installation

You can install this SDK either by referencing the .dll file or using NuGet.

Use the following line to install the latest SDK using the NuGet CLI.

PM> Install-Package Plivo -Version 4.0.0

You can also use the .NET CLI to install this package as follows

> dotnet add package Plivo --version 4.0.0

Getting started

Authentication

To make the API requests, you need to create a PlivoApi instance and provide it with authentication credentials (which can be found at https://console.plivo.com/dashboard/).

var api = new PlivoApi("your_auth_id", "your_auth_token");

The Basics

The SDK uses consistent interfaces to create, retrieve, update, delete and list resources. The pattern followed is as follows:

api.Resource.Create(params);
api.Resource.Get(params);
api.Resource.Update(identifier, params);
api.Resource.Delete(identifier);
api.Resource.List();

Using api.Resource.List() would list the first 20 resources by default (which is the first page, with limit as 20, and offset as 0). To get more, you will have to use limit and offset to get the second page of resources.

Examples

Send a message

internal class Program
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var api = new PlivoApi("your_auth_id", "your_auth_token");
        var response = api.Message.Create(
            src:"the_source_number",
            dst:new List<String>{"the_destination_number"},
            text:"Hello, world!"
        );
        Console.WriteLine(response);
    }
}

Make a call

internal class Program
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        var api = new PlivoApi("YOUR_AUTH_ID", "YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN");
        var response = api.Call.Create(
            to:new List<String>{"the_to_number"},
            from:"the_from_number",
            answerMethod:"GET",
            answerUrl:"https://answer.url"
        );
        Console.WriteLine(response);
    }
}

Generate Plivo XML

class MainClass
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Plivo.XML.Response response = new Plivo.XML.Response();
        response.AddSpeak("Hello, world!",
                          new Dictionary<string, string>() { });
        Console.WriteLine(response.ToString());
    }
}

This generates the following XML:

<Response>
  <Speak>Hello, world!</Speak>
</Response>
