Issue #3 resolved
Former user created an issue

I was wondering if you could help me? I would like to add a new gateway pull request, but I'm trying to create the correct regular expression that parses the response for success and error format when setting up a gateway for django-sms-gateway.

django-sms-gateway asks for... A regular expression that parses the response. May contain named groups for "gateway_message_id", "status_message" and "status_code".

This is what I have tried for the following gateway that's shown below but it does not match...


the gateway returns this following text including the headers...

error code|error text|submission reference
0|sms submitted|eb725f96b4b094d5f8318741cc1a545f-2 

and successful...

error code|error text|submission reference
0|sms submitted|[32 characters]-[1 character] 

in the db status_text all i get matched is the word 'error text'.

this is the gateway I'm trying to integrate (see page 5)

any help would really, really be appreciated.

    I'll have a bit of a look at some stage when I get some free time.

    Can you attach a dumpdata of what your gateway setup looks like (without username/password), so I can use that?

    The only way I can get it to work is to split the line in models on line 161 status_msg = '\n'.join(res.readlines()[1:])

    then use the regex


    but this is a bit of a hack

    Yep, it looks like the provider is returning two lines.

    Your regular expression should be able to just ignore the first line.


    That should work. Preliminary testing suggests it does.

    >>> re.match('(.*\n)(?P<status_code>[0-9]+)\|(?P<status_message>[^|]+)\|(?P<gateway_message_id>.+)', data).groupdict()
    {'status_code': '0', 'status_message': 'sms submitted', 'gateway_message_id': 'eb725f96b4b094d5f8318741cc1a545f-2'}
