Actions on Google Client Library

This client library makes it easy to create Actions for the Google Assistant and supports Dialogflow, Actions SDK, and Smart Home fulfillment.

NPM Version Build Status

Setup Instructions

Install the library with either npm install actions-on-google or yarn add actions-on-google if you use yarn.

Conversational Services

Dialogflow

// Import the appropriate service and chosen wrappers
const {
  dialogflow,
  Image,
} = require('actions-on-google')

// Create an app instance
const app = dialogflow()

// Register handlers for Dialogflow intents

app.intent('Default Welcome Intent', conv => {
  conv.ask('Hi, how is it going?')
  conv.ask(`Here's a picture of a cat`)
  conv.ask(new Image({
    url: 'https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/accessibility/semantics-builtin/imgs/160204193356-01-cat-500.jpg',
    alt: 'A cat',
  }))
})

// Intent in Dialogflow called `Goodbye`
app.intent('Goodbye', conv => {
  conv.close('See you later!')
})

app.intent('Default Fallback Intent', conv => {
  conv.ask(`I didn't understand. Can you tell me something else?`)
})

Actions SDK

// Import the appropriate service and chosen wrappers
const {
  actionssdk,
  Image,
} = require('actions-on-google')

// Create an app instance
const app = actionssdk()

// Register handlers for Actions SDK intents

app.intent('actions.intent.MAIN', conv => {
  conv.ask('Hi, how is it going?')
  conv.ask(`Here's a picture of a cat`)
  conv.ask(new Image({
    url: 'https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/accessibility/semantics-builtin/imgs/160204193356-01-cat-500.jpg',
    alt: 'A cat',
  }))
})

app.intent('actions.intent.TEXT', (conv, input) => {
  if (input === 'bye' || input === 'goodbye') {
    return conv.close('See you later!')
  }
  conv.ask(`I didn't understand. Can you tell me something else?`)
})
