With QuickReply

                               ]))

Webhook

WebhookParser

※ You can use WebhookParser or WebhookHandler

__init__(self, channel_secret)

parser = linebot.WebhookParser('YOUR_CHANNEL_SECRET')

parse(self, body, signature)

Parses the webhook body and builds an event object list. If the signature does NOT match, InvalidSignatureError is raised.

events = parser.parse(body, signature)

for event in events:
    # Do something

WebhookHandler

※ You can use WebhookParser or WebhookHandler

__init__(self, channel_secret)

handler = linebot.WebhookHandler('YOUR_CHANNEL_SECRET')

handle(self, body, signature)

Handles webhooks. If the signature does NOT match, InvalidSignatureError is raised.

handler.handle(body, signature)

Add handler method

You can add a handler method by using the add decorator.

add(self, event, message=None)

@handler.add(MessageEvent, message=TextMessage)
def handle_message(event):
    line_bot_api.reply_message(
        event.reply_token,
        TextSendMessage(text=event.message.text))

When the event is an instance of MessageEvent and event.message is an instance of TextMessage, this handler method is called.

Set default handler method

You can set the default handler method by using the default decorator.

default(self)

@handler.default()
def default(event):
    print(event)

If there is no handler for an event, this default handler method is called.
