At Dialog, we think developer happiness is pretty darn important. From the beginning, we set out to build clear, effective and clean APIs. We’ve found the same level of execution behind Botpress and are happy to contribute to their growing ecosystem.
You should try to build a simple bot with Botpress, it’s deceptively simple. We’ve created an example Facebook Messenger bot to get you started.
Starting from scratch, simply clone the example, install the dependencies, and start the server.
git clone https://github.com/dialoganalytics/botpress-example.git cd botpress-example npm install npm start
Then configure the botpress-messenger module to connect your bot with Facebook Messenger.
If you already have a Botpress project, then simply install botpress-dialog.
botpress install dialog
After configuring the module, all the bot’s conversations will be tracked by Dialog and you’ll be able to visualize the data in your bot’s dashboard.
If you don’t already have a Dialog account, create one right now.
