Kannel Web Configuration Tool

Following on with my previous themes of making Kannel easier to use for everyone, I have spent some time creating a tool which I think makes it easier to configure Kannel. It is a web based configuration tool which edits Kannel configuration files directly (doesn’t rely on any third party databases etc). I wrote it in PHP to keep it simple.

Current features

  • Edit existing configuration files
  • Add new configuration groups (smsc’s, smsbox-route, sendsms-user, etc)
  • Based on the cfg.def from Kannel CVS 1.4.2 as of 2008/12/18

Features in progress

  • Live updates to Kannel without restart for SMPP/EMI and smsbox-route’s (patch of Kannel CVS required)

Coming soon

  • User authentication
  • Kannel analytics and monitoring
  • Audit trails of changes
  • Other live updates

I am looking for feedback on the tool and when I believe it is stable enough and usable enough I will release it. You can see the beta of this tool here:

Enjoy! Please comment on the blog or email me at with feedback.

    Hi Donald,

    I just downloaded your KWC and i love it, you've done a great job. I saw on the roadmap page that you have plans for 'Live' SMSC (SMPP + EMI) configuration without Kannel restart
    'Live' smsbox-route configuration without Kannel restar and Other 'live' configuration changes to Kannel.

    Any update on those?

    I can also work on the live update thing without kannel reboot if you give me tips/idea how to got about it. Any changes i made will be forwarded to you if it's worth included in KWC.

    feedback will be appreciate
