Messente API official python library

- 5 MIN READ - 30 Nov 2016

Our collection of API libraries now include official Python language support.

Among the official and community contributed development tools Messente now provides official messente-python library compatible with both Python2 and Python3.

The library is distributed via PyPI and can be installed simply with:

pip install messente-python

messente-python is open-source and resides on GitHub.

Currently supported Messente services are:
To see it in action, let's take a simple example of sending sms:
import messente

api = messente.Messente(
    username="api_user",
    password="api_password"
)

response = api.sms.send({
    "to": "+372123456789",
    "from": "Server 2",
    "text": "Nginx restared at 10:32"
})

if response.is_ok():
    print("SMS Sent, id", response.get_sms_id())
else:
    print("Could not send SMS", response.get_full_error_msg())
Every API call returns a response object that provides utility methods for checking the status, error codes, obtaining the result of a performed action and translating the errors into meaningful messages.

For full documentation please visit GitHub page.
It's also worth mentioning that messente-python library comes with a list of example programs demonstrating the use of all the supported API calls.

Join us to learn how we're helping people #TurnOn2FA

We’ve developed solid APIs for global SMS messaging and two-factor authentication, which are currently part of processes for hundreds of companies and facilitate thousands of transactions every day. Yet we aren’t stopping there. Effectively communicating with customers and securing customer account access online are two aspects of business technology we focus on. While there’s much more to business technology (much, much more,) these are the two areas which we strive to be the best.  

That’s why we keep developing our tools to address evolving needs in the areas which we specialize.

Tools to avoid breaking the budget with SMS

01 Aug 2017

Getting the most bang out of each buck in a marketing communication strategy requires solids budget estimation. Yet when the budget is broken halfway through the month, the questions arise: How did this happen? How have we sent twice as many SMS messages than we should have at this point? Well, this is where the multipart SMS comes into play.
