A simple, multi-protocol, extendable and embeddable chatbot

Project Description

Bo is a chatbot written in Python. It can run either as a standalone program or easily be embedded in your own program.

Bo is distributed under the BSD licence, check LICENSE for further information.

Getting your very own copy of Bo

The easiest way to get Bo running is deploying it on Heroku:

$ git init bo-heroku
$ cd bo-heroku/
$ heroku create --stack cedar
$ wget ""
$ echo "-e hg+" >>requirements.txt
$ echo "worker: bo -c config.yaml" >Procfile
$ wget -O config.yaml ""

Edit the created config.yaml to set your password, possibly add extra plugins, and execute the following to get Bo running:

$ git commit -a -m 'init'
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku ps:scale worker=1

If you are having issues running Bo, use heroku logs to see the output from Bo and heroku restart to restart it.


Plugins add extra functionality to Bo. The provided plugins can be found in bo/dist/plugins.
