Adhearsion's RESTful Click2Call returns

Unfortunately, the Adhearsion restful_clicktocall component has been broken for some time. But fear not, we’ve fixed it up. After several posts to the mailing list reporting the issue, Mojo Lingo stepped up and sponsored getting things fixed. Both the restful_clicktocall component and the restful_adhearsion client gem are now official Adhearsion projects. Additionally, the restful_rpc example component shipped with Adhearsion has become ahn-restful-rpc, a separate component gem. The old example component will be removed in the next release of Adhearsion.

So, now that things are all rosy, how do we get things setup? First off, you’ll need a brand new Adhearsion 1.2 application:

{11:50}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads ben% ahn create click2call
      create  components/simon_game
      create  components/disabled/stomp_gateway
      create  components/disabled/xmpp_gateway
      create  components/ami_remote
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/spec
      create  config
      create  script
      create  .ahnrc
      create  components/simon_game/simon_game.rb
      create  components/ami_remote/ami_remote.rb
      create  components/disabled/xmpp_gateway/xmpp_gateway.rb
      create  components/disabled/xmpp_gateway/xmpp_gateway.yml
      create  components/disabled/xmpp_gateway/README.markdown
      create  components/disabled/stomp_gateway/stomp_gateway.rb
      create  components/disabled/stomp_gateway/stomp_gateway.yml
      create  components/disabled/stomp_gateway/README.markdown
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/restful_rpc.rb
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/restful_rpc.yml
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/README.markdown
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/example-client.rb
      create  components/disabled/restful_rpc/spec/restful_rpc_spec.rb
      create  config/environment.rb
      create  config/startup.rb
      create  dialplan.rb
      create  events.rb
      create  README
      create  Rakefile
      create  Gemfile
      create  script/ahn

Next, you’ll need to ensure the old restful_rpc component is removed:

{11:53}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads ben% cd click2call
{11:54}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% rm -r components/disabled/restful_rpc

Next up, the restful_clicktocall component:

{11:54}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% cd components
{11:55}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call/components ben% git clone git://

Receiving objects: 100% (97/97), 44.29 KiB, done.

Now, we need to install the ahn-restful-rpc component which the clicktocall app depends on:

{11:55}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call/components ben% cd ..
{11:55}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call/components ben% echo "gem 'ahn-restful-rpc', :group => :components" >> Gemfile
{12:01}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% mkdir config/components
{12:05}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% cd config/components
{12:05}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call/config/components ben% wget

You’ll also need to add the following line to startup.rb to enable the component:

config.add_component 'ahn-restful-rpc'

Once the first leg of your calls get into Adhearsion, you’ll need to pass them through. Add the following to your dialplan.rb:

adhearsion {[:destination] = get_variable("destination")

After configuring AMI, you can now start Adhearsion:

{12:08}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% ahn -
[2011-08-26 12:09:18] INFO  WEBrick 1.3.1

 INFO ami: Successful AMI actions-only connection into test@
 INFO ami: Successful AMI events-only connection into test@
 INFO agi: Adhearsion::VoIP::Asterisk::AGI::Server::RubyServer start

The last step is to get the web app up and running:

{12:09}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call ben% cd components/restful_clicktocall/web
{12:09}[ruby-1.9.2]~/Downloads/click2call/components/restful_clicktocall/web@master ben% bundle install && bundle exec rackup

Now when you visit http://localhost:9292/, you’ll be able to make sweet click2call goodness, courtesy of Adhearsion.
