Twimlbin

Ahoy! We are excited to announce that Twilio has acquired twimlbin.com!

Since 2011, twimlbin.com has made it even easier to use Twilio by removing the need to spin-up a web server for prototyping simple applications. Over 10 million requests have been made from Twilio to twimlbin.com powering tens of thousands of Twilio applications.

Now, Developers can create TwiML documents directly in the Twilio Console. Creating a new TwiML Bin is easy. Just log-in to the Twilio Console and go to Developer Center → TwiML Bins.

You can learn more about the announcement here.

Twilio

Put your valid TwiML (invalid XML will be shown in red) into the editor above. When Twilio requests this URL, we'll serve them that content directly rather than this formatted page.

Protip: You can force Twimlbin to serve the raw TwiML by appending /raw to any Twimlbin URL.

Private:

http://twimlbin.com/2b076a4c89b780ded42308c206da24aa

Your editable Twimlbin - use this to edit your TwiML and as the URL when setting up a Twilio number.

Public:

http://twimlbin.com/external/ea6bf4169f74e992

Your public Twimlbin URL - use this to share with others without allowing edits.

Track Calls & SMS with Google Analytics


You have the option to track all of your calls and SMS sent through a Twimlbin with Google Analytics. Simply enter your Analytics Account ID below ( it starts with UA- ) and choose whether you'd like us to track a call/SMS as a pageview or an event. Pageviews will be displayed as:

  • /twimlbin/{twimlbin_id}/{Call or SMS}/{To Number}/{From Number}
  • Example: /twimlbin/2b076a4c89b780ded42308c206da24aa/call/+14151112233/+14155551234

Events have values:

  • Name: "Twilio Request to {To number}"
  • Type: "call" or "SMS"
  • Label: value {from number}
  • Event: You specify the actual event value (defaults to 1)

Don't know how events work? That's ok, pageviews are automatic and easy to view in Analytics.
