Today I released my tiny WhatsApp Dynamo package, and it’s now available for download and testing @ dynamopackages.com. WhatsAppDynamo provides integration with WhatsApp Web platform, allowing you to send text data (like URLs, file paths, parameter names, etc.) using Dynamo. Note that due to the platform limitations, images and files are not currently supported – they could be sent only as a hyperlink.
Currently WhatsAppDynamo package consists of a single custom node called “WhatsApp.SendMessage”. This node creates a WhatsApp message (string) in appropriate format to be used in WhatsApp Web platform. As I’ve already said, images and files are not supported due to WhatsApp limitations. Input desired phone number or leave this field blank (“UsePhoneNumber” switch is set to ‘False’ by default) to choose your contact later in browser.
Omit any zeroes, brackets or dashes when adding the phone number in international format: ‘
+001-(555)1234567‘ must be converted to ‘15551234567‘ . Also please keep in mind that this phone number must have an active account on WhatsApp, otherwise you won’t be able to send your message.
Please feel free to test the package, and report issues & bugs here: Dynamo packages. It supports Dynamo 1.3.0+ & Revit 2016+
