Let's go over the steps necessary to implement click-to-call in a Python and Flask application.

クリック トゥー コール

  1. Webサイトの訪問者は電話番号をWebフォームに送信する。
  2. Webアプリケーションは送信を受け取り、TwilioへのHTTPリクエストを開始して、Twilioに通話の発信を始めるよう指示する。
  3. Twilioはリクエストを受け取り、ユーザーの電話に発信を開始する。
  4. ユーザーが電話に出る。
  5. After the call connects, we provide TwiML instructions to connect the user to our sales or support teams.


This tutorial demonstrates how to initialize a call using the Twilio REST API and how to create a call using the TwiML Say verb.

さぁ、はじめましょう! 下のボタンをクリックして、チュートリアルの次の手順に移動してください。

Set up your environment

Before we create our click-to-call application, we need to set up our environment first.

Let's put our Twilio credentials in a place where our application can access them. We'll store them as environment variables that our application can read.

# Twilio API credentials
# Found at https://www.twilio.com/console

# You need to create a TwiML app to use this project.
# Create one at https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers/dev-tools/twiml-apps
# then use its "Sid" value here

# Get your number at
# https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers/incoming
export TWILIO_CALLER_ID=you_twilio_number

Replace the Account_SID, Auth_Token, and Twilio_Number placeholder values with your unique values, which you can find in the Twilio Console. You can use an existing Twilio phone number or obtain a new number.

Twilio Console Credentials Location




        For our solution, we'll need a form where the user can enter a phone number.

        No need to overthink this step as the real goal is to POST the user's phone number to your controller.

        What information does this form need?

        • An input for the User's phone number
        • An input for the sales team phone number
        • 送信ボタン

              A user facing web form


              Since the page doesn't need to render new content after clicking on submit, we decided to implement the POST action via Ajax using jQuery. Let's look at that code next.


              クリックトゥーコール機能をよりシームレスにするために、Ajax を使用して非同期的にフォームを送信するようにしました。

              This code shows one way you could implement this functionality using jQuery.

              • Watch for the user submitting the form
              • フォームデータをコントローラーに送信する
              • 送信の成否についてユーザーに知らせる

              これは jQuery の $.ajax() メソッドの一般的な実装です。通話の接続時にレスポンスメッセージを返していることに注意してください。


                    'Submit' the web form with jQuery


                    これでフロントエンドが出来上がったので、データの受信されるバックエンドを構築しましょう。 次のステップでその説明を始めます。

                    Instantiate the client object

                    First, we instantiate a TwilioRestClient object with our Account SID and Auth Token. This is essentially our Python REST API handler, which we could use to send SMSes.

                    But for now, we need it to get access to the object that we're going to use to create phone calls.


                          Application Core Controller


                          Let's look at how to make a phone call.


                          Next, we'll use the create method from the calls object to make an outgoing phone call. This requires us to pass a From number, a To number and a URL parameter that tells Twilio what to do after it connects the call to our user. In this case, Twilio needs to dial in the Agent once the call has been placed. We'll discuss this more in the future steps.



                                Next, let's take a look at how to define the outbound endpoint.


                                Twilio makes a request to our application when the call is created using the REST API. We'll need to create an endpoint that is publicly available for internet requests: we'll walk through a way to make your localhost accessible via ngrok a little later in this tutorial.


                                      Application Core Controller


                                      Next, we will see how to generate the TwiML required for Twilio to take actions on behalf of our application.

                                      TwiML の生成

                                      TwiML is a set of simple verbs and nouns written in XML that Twilio reads as instructions.

                                      In this case, our instructions inform Twilio to simply SAY something to the user. If we wanted to connect the user to a real support agent, we would have to add a Dial verb that specifies the support agent number so the customer can talk to him or her.

                                      To make writing TwiML easy, many of the helper libraries have methods that generate TwiML for you. In this case, we use the twilio Python library to create a TwiML response that will instruct Twilio to say something.


                                            Connect an 'agent' to the user


                                            And with that, you've helped us get a working click-to-call form, ready to be integrated into your own application.

                                            Testing Your App Locally

                                            Now you can run and test your Twilio app.

                                            However, you probably want to test it using a publicly available endpoint without having to go "public" with your app. The best option is to use ngrok.

                                            Note: For more information about running the application, see the Readme file in the app github repository.

                                            About ngrok

                                            ngrok generates a secure URL that forwards traffic to a port, usually 5000, on your localhost server. It allows you to run applications locally but make them a publicly available endpoint via secure tunneling. This allows you to test your application and do all the things you want your app to do but in a secure public space.

                                            In case you are wondering, ngrok is an executable (ngrok.exe) that you run on the command line or terminal.

                                            Setting Up ngrok

                                            ngrok is brilliantly simple to use. You sign up on the ngrok website (ngrok.com), download the ngrok.zip file for your OS of choice, then unzip the file into an easily accessible location.

                                            For example, on Windows, you can place it in your \Users directory in \AppData\Roaming\<ngrok-directory-name>\ngrok.exe. Then, update your PATH environment variables to the location of the ngrok executable. On Linux or OSX, it's much easier (see the instructions on the ngrok site).

                                            And that's it.

                                            Accessing your app from an endpoint using ngrok

                                            So, now you are ready to use ngrok.

                                            Before you start ngrok, it might be a good idea to have your Twilio Console open.

                                            For Mac and Linux, open a terminal and run this command to start ngrok:

                                            $ ./ngrok http 4040

                                            On Windows, open a command prompt and run this command to start ngrok:

                                            $ Path-to-ngrok> ngrok http 4040

                                            Alternately, you can start ngrok using the following command:

                                            $ ngrok http 4040 -host-header="localhost:4040"

                                            The port number "4040" is arbitrary. If your local server is running on another port, replace "4040" in the command with the appropriate port number.

                                            This will start ngrok. A running instance of ngrok will appear in the terminal showing the local web interface (in this case and the public URL (in this case, https://28dd499b.ngrok.io).


                                            The forwarding public URL needs to be set in the Twilio Console. In the Console, select the active phone number you set in the configuration file and enter the public URL from ngrok (shown above) in the "A Call Comes In" field under Voice & Fax. Be sure to select Webhook from the dropdown list.

                                            Remember, each time you run ngrok, a new public URL will be generated. You will need to set this new URL in the Console.

                                            Twilio Console Webhook Setting

                                            And that's it. You now have a publicly available endpoint for your app, so now you can take a look at your running app and enter the phone numbers using your ngrok address: https://xxxxxx.ngrok.io
