```sh-session $ twilio plugins:install @twilio-labs/plugin-rtc
### Install the plugin for local development

The following step will install the plugin from a local directory. Use this option if you are interested in modifying the plugin and testing it out from the Twilio CLI.

```sh-session
$ twilio plugins:link /path/to/plugin-rtc

Supported Apps

This plugin currently supports the following applications:

Twilio Video App

A mobile and web collaboration application built with Twilio Programmable Video. Visit the projects below for instructions on how to use this plugin to build and deploy the Twilio Video app.

Token Server API Documentation

The following section documents the application token server used to provide Programable Video access tokens to supported Twilio Video applications. The token server is deployed as a Twilio Function.
| Method | URL | | ------ | ------------------ | | POST | /token |

Authentication

The application token server requires an authentication mechanism to be specified when deploying. The following section documents each supported authentication mechanism.

Passcode

Each request is verified using a passcode generated at deploy time. Passcodes remain valid for one week. After the passcode expires, users can redeploy an application and a new passcode will be generated. The snippet below provides an example request body used by a supported application.
{
  "passcode": "12345612341234",
  "user_identity": "User",
  "room_name": "Demo",
}

Token

This endpoint returns a Programmable Video Access token. When create_room is true, it will create a room, and when create_conversation is true, it will create a Twilio Conversation associated with the room. This token is used by the above mentioned Video Apps to connect to a video room and a conversation.
POST /token

Parameters

| Name | Type | Description | | --------------------- | --------- | -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | | passcode | string | Required. The application passcode. | | user_identity | string | Required. The user's identity. | | room_name | string | Required when create_room is true A room name that will be used to create a token scoped to connecting to only one room. | | create_room | boolean | (default: true) When false, a room will not be created when a token is requested. | | create_conversation | boolean | (default: false) When true, a Twilio Conversation will be created (if it doesn't already exist) and a participant will be added to it when a token is requested. create_room must also be true. |
