Project description

Botshot Chatbot Framework

CodeFactor PyPI PyPI - Status PyPI - Python Version Read the Docs GitHub

Botshot is a Python/Django framework for building stateful chatbots and conversational interfaces.

With Botshot, you can build complex chatbots that remember past conversations.

Botshot can:

  • Receive messages from Messenger, Telegram or Amazon Alexa (more platforms coming soon)
  • Understand and parse messages using a NLU service
    • e.g. "Show me the best concert" -> intent: recommend, query: concert
  • Manage the dialogue and move between the conversation's states
  • Keep track of the context and history of the conversation
  • Send messages and media back to the user
  • Send proactive messages and notifications
  • Connect to 3rd party APIs and analytics

Getting started

Just install the package and run the bots script. You will also need the Redis database.

sudo apt install redis-server
pip3 install botshot
bots init my_bot && cd my_bot
bots start

That's it! Now open and chat with your bot.

You may also want to add some actual content, so check the docs ;-)
