Packaging your RapidSMS application for re-useΒΆ

If you’d like others to be able to use your application, you’ll want to package it and publish it on PyPI.

You will package and publish your RapidSMS application in the same way you would any other Django application. Django provides excellent documentation on packaging your Django app, so we won’t try to write the same thing here.

We recommend using at least the following classifiers on your package:

Framework :: Django
Intended Audience :: Developers
Programming Language :: Python
Topic :: Communications
Topic :: Software Development :: Libraries :: Python Modules

Depending on your project, also consider:

Operating System :: OS Independent
Topic :: Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Dynamic Content
Environment :: Web Environment

You’ll also need to give your package a license that allows others to use it. RapidSMS uses the BSD license and we recommend it if you don’t have a strong preference for another license.

RapidSMS is a free and open-source framework for dynamic data collection, logistics coordination and communication, leveraging basic short message service (SMS) mobile phone technology.
