Ouija board engineering, yay!

Thanks for the heads up about sipp, I had no idea it even existed.  I will definitely look into it as it may do the trick for what I need.

I'm attempting to find out more...but, my industry tends to not ever know what they want, so we have to make it up a lot of the times -- but that's my problem, not yours.

Thanks again so much for directing me to sipp - I will mess around with it and see what I can do.

linphone seems to be an overkill for such problem.

I suggest to find out what EXACTLY they try to test and then look for a tool. There exist also command line sip tools like sipp that you can start from a cron job.

Very sorry about the wildly delayed reply.

To answer your question, I don't even know what they want.  I do know we have some tests we need to automate.  Just a series of making calls that someone currently has to sit down and physically *do* -- vs. scripting it....but again, I don't even know how to get the sdk "working" with visual studio (again, my apologies, not a developer =\  )   I'm working on researching as much as I can, but figured I'd use this mailing list in case someone can get me nudged in the right direction from the perspective of "I'm teaching a 5 yr old how to script against linphone"

Thanks again all...  I do apologize for cluttering up the list with such entry level questions.

We are using liblinphone SDK with windows C# and UWP. I am not sure of what you want to do !

What are the 'things' that you need to develop?

Hello everyone,

I am a complete newbie to the linphone world (and development as well).  I was hoping someone could assist me, and I apologize in advance for wasting anyone's time.

I jumped into a new job role and, while they're getting things "ready" for me I was basically told "hey we need to develop things against linphone -- see if you can make that be a thing".  As a somewhat relevant detail, I am not a developer.  I am passingly familiar with visual studio, vs code, some scripting languages, and that's about it.

I was hoping that someone may have a step by step guide on how to stand up visual studio, install the linphone sdk, and where I can get some "getting started" information just even in terms of "here's how to make a call in c#".  From my reading, it seems linphonesdk has "wrappers" for c# and python?  Either language is fine (python preferred, but not mandatory by any stretch).

Basically I just want to be able to tell my boss "hey here's a script that makes a call from one softphone to another, what else do you want me to do?"

I have a pbx and two softphones setup, so the "infrastructure" is there, so to speak.  I just need help getting started with linphone.

Any assistance is appreciated -- and again, I apologize for being completely new and not knowing what I'm doing.

Thanks so much.
