    SIGNAL Developer Mode

    Part of Twilio Labs Banner

    SIGNAL Developer Mode is an augmentation for your experience at Twilio's SIGNAL 2020 Conference.

    It's built on top of the Twilio CLI and provides functionality inside your terminal such as:

    • augmented keynote experience: displaying useful resources, demos and closed-captions as you are watching the keynote
    • access to your full SIGNAL schedule: view the entire SIGNAL and SIGNAL TV schedule and register for any sessions you are interested in
    • a packed demo section: explore code samples for a variety of Twilio use-cases and get started in minutes
    • a hidden cheat mode: find the hidden cheat mode and use it during the keynote session
    • and more

    You'll need the Twilio CLI to run SIGNAL Developer Mode. Head over to the Twilio CLI documentation to install it.

    Additionally, you'll need a ticket to SIGNAL 2020. Register for a free ticket on the SIGNAL website.

    Supported Terminals

    SIGNAL Developer Mode should work in any terminal but some terminals might have limited functionality or display flickering.

    Some of the terminals that we found that were doing a good job are: Hyper, the built-in macOS and cmder on Windows.

    For terminals that have known flickering issues we try to detect that and reduce the amount of animations and screen updates. For more info on this check out the Troubleshooting Guide.

    SIGNAL Developer Mode will also adapt based on the size of your terminal, however, the bigger your terminal window the better. Alternatively, you can change your terminal font size.


    $ twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-signal2020
    $ twilio --help signal2020
      $ twilio signal2020

    You'll be prompted for your SIGNAL credentials that you also use to log into the SIGNAL 2020 website.

    If you don't want to enter your email and password every time, you can also store them as environment variables and pass them via the --email flags to twilio signal2020..
