Recast.AI starter kit NodeJS

A starter kit for developing bots on the Recast.AI platform.

Note: This project is currently in beta version and can be modified at any time.

Requirements

Node version

We recommend to use at least `node v6

Recast.AI account

Create an account on the Recast.AI platform and follow this quick tutorial to create your first bot on the interface.

Usage

Installation

git clone https://github.com/RecastAI/starter-NodeJS.git my-bot && cd my-bot

using npm npm install

or yarn yarn

Create the config file

Create a config.js file in the src directory of your project, copy/paste these lines:

process.env.PORT = '5000'
process.env.REQUEST_TOKEN = ''
process.env.LANGUAGE = ''
// Write your own configuration here:
// ...

Complete the Recast.AI process.env.REQUEST_TOKEN and process.env.LANGUAGE: go to your bot page, click on the settings icon (on the right side of your screen), and copy the request_token. Then, set the default language of your bot: 'en', 'fr'... or leave this field empty for auto-detection language

Run locally

using npm npm start

using yarn yarn start

  • download ngrok
  • launch it: ./ngrok http 5000
  • copy the url ngrok gave and paste it in the Recast.AI interface: Go to your bot page, click on the RUN tab and edit your current bot webhook
  • Chat with your bot on the channels you've configured ;)
