Code documentation is included in the SDK. Complete documentation, quick start guides and reference material for the TeleSign API is available within the TeleSign Standard Documentation.
To add the TeleSign Node.js SDK using NPM to your Node.js project:
npm install telesignsdk -save
If you have already cloned this SDK, you can using the following command
npm install /path/to/sdk -save
Node.js 6+ is required for the TeleSign Node.js SDK.
You will need a Customer ID and API Key in order to use TeleSign’s API. If you already have an account you can retrieve them from your account dashboard within the Portal. If you have not signed up yet, sign up here.
We make use of popular, feature-rich and well-tested open-source libraries to perform the underlying functionality of the SDK. These dependencies are managed by the community accepted package manager. If you are unable to add these additional third party dependencies to your project we have ensured that the SDK code is easy to read and can serve as sample code. We have also made sure that more complicated functions such as generate_telesign_headers can be easily extracted from the SDK and used 'as is' in your project.
How to Run
- Edit file and replace values for API Key, Customer ID, and mobile_number
- Run the file via : node filename.js
Example: You can run the 1_send_message.js with the following command
