Description:I'm personally offering a $300 bounty on a Win32-based Asterisk call manager client.

It's duties would include gastman-like functionality, being able to graphically manage calls, conferences, queues, etc.  I'd also need functionality to allow for end-users to manage a handful of call settings, such as manually setting themselves away, call forwarding, and being able to "close up shop" early for the day.  All of this would most likely be done with astdb and customized extensions.

I'll make myself very available to discuss architecture plans (ie: encapsulating the actual calls to * in an object, that could also be hooked from other applications, or later extended with a bridge to PIMs, etc). The configs for each user would most likely be stored in a local xml or ini file. We could also pull these from a fileserver or http server -- I've got some great ideas for management, for anyone interested.

I feel the project should be coded in NATIVE win32, based on C# and the .NET framework. What we need is a fast, clean win32 interface, not a clumsy port that always looks like a port. :)

I believe a fair amount of money would be available from Digium for this project as well, and I'm hoping a few others will help me up the anty as well.

The project should be "accepted" relatively soon, and completed within 3 months of acceptance. This deadline can be easily changed if the situation merits it. Feel free to /msg me (denon) on irc with any questions or thoughts.

Any interest on this? I've had a couple people contact me, a lot of interest to get it done, but most people want to know if any devs are interested in starting..

I have been working on one in C#, so it should work with "mono" as well as Microsoft.

Its been taking a bit longer cause I first developed a library so others could build their own applications. I am also building a flexible GUI with plugable visual modules. The idea is that * allows custom apps, so this manager allows custom apps too.

I have been working on a dialplan module first so its easier to make alterations, but if there are better ideas let me know. I did start a graphical view, but I would like to first get something simpler going first.

You can download what I have so far at


If you want to try the SDK out, load asterisk.dll into your .net project.

Just modify the included XML file to configure for different servers.
