Project description


Build Status PyPI version

Apprentice is a library for deploying and developing actions via Dialogflow and Google Cloud Functions.


pip install apprentice


A Google Action project will consist of two things:

  1. A Dialogflow defined action
  2. An endpoint that your Dialogflow Action can talk to.

To generate a Hello World application, you can run:

$ apprentice init

This will create a file structure:

    requirements.txt is the file that gcloud looks for to upload the function. It is important that the name,, remains in order to use gcloud cli.


To make local development quicker, you can run a local server with

$ apprentice run



gcloud cli must be installed and authorized for the following command to work. If you wish to not have gcloud cli installed, you can copy the file contents via the gcloud function dashboard.

$ apprentice -f hello_world -s hello_world_agent -e hello_world

This will generate the command to execute a gcloud function deploy via the cli.

Getting Started

from apprentice import Apprentice

apr = Apprentice(__name__)

@apr.route('/', methods=['POST'])
def hello_world(*args, **kwargs):
    reply = 'Hello world!'
    return apr.response(reply)
