Effective Android SMS-API for actions experiments: Termux

Wrap the CLI API tools and tunnel them to whatever you need.

Steps:

  1. Download the Termux APK directly from GitHub (not the store).
  2. Download the Termux API APK from GitHub (not the store).

Avoid mounting and chrooting into Termux with adb. Instead, set up SSH on a port of your choice; I use 9922.

Alternatively, you can create your own private Flask server to interact with it. Check out the binaries with termux-* -help.

I rediscovered this method recently and found it highly effective.

No root access is required.

A recommended approach over subbing to DLC.
