wxbotserv

An automated Wechat bot to reply message for normal user account that run on server-side. Yes, you heard it right, on server-side.

How-To

Environment variables

Use environment variables to customize how the bot will work.

  • SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL=<your slack webhook url>

    Bot will send QRCode image to Slack. Then you can use WeChat to scan in order to log in immediately. Please note that you cannot send image to WeChat and extract QRCode from there. It needs actual scan.

Start the Bot!

Install the bot via npm install wxbotserv (Required node version 6+).

Import the bot, and start it as follows

const wxbotserv = require('wxbotserv');
wxbotserv(function(msgObj) {
	if (msgObj.message === 'hello world') {
		return 'hello world to you too!';
	}
	else {
		return 'Please say hello world to me...';
	}
});

Or you could specify options object with following format

{
	processMsgDelay: <number>, // delay between each processing message
	debugLog: <boolean> // whether or not to print out debugging log to console
}

as follows

let options = { processMsgDelay: 150, debugLog: false };

wxbotserv(function(msgObj) {
	// ...
}, options);
