Package for implementing Dorset remote agent API

Project description

Dorset remote agent library

This library provides components for implementing the remote agent web service API for Dorset conversational interface project.


Install using pip:

$ pip install dorset


This library handles the encoding and decoding of requests and responses from a Dorset application. This supports the creation of remote agents written in Python. Use this library with a python framework for RESTful APIs like Flask, Bottle, or Django.

The web framework will handle HTTP requests and response and this library will decode the request as an AgentRequest object and will encode an AgentResponse.

With Flask, this will look like:

app = Flask("dorset_hello")

# required endpoint for the application to test if the agent is alive
@app.route('/ping', methods=['GET'])
def ping():
    return json.dumps("pong")

# primary endpoint
@app.route('/request', methods=['POST'])
def process():
    agent_request = Dorset.decode_request(


    return Dorset.encode_response(text="hello, world!")
