Botmetrics

Botmetrics is a Ruby client to the BotMetrics service which lets you collect & analyze metrics for your bot.

Build Status

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'botmetrics-rb', require: 'botmetrics'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install botmetrics-rb

Setting your API Host (for Self-Hosting)

If you are using your own self-hosted version of Botmetrics, remember to set the BOTMETRICS_API_HOST environment variable to your host (If you have hosted your Botmetrics instance at https://my-botmetrics-instance.herokuapp.com, set BOTMETRICS_API_HOST to https://my-botmetrics-instance.herokuapp.com.

Usage (Facebook)

Register your Facebook bot with Botmetrics. Once you have done so, navigate to "Bot Settings" and find out your Bot ID and API Key.

With that, you can initialize a BotMetrics::Client:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')

Alternatively, you can set the following ENV variables

  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_API_KEY']
  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_BOT_ID']

and initialize a BotMetrics::Client with the default ENV variables:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new

track

Call the track API in the webhook receiver that handles all of your Facebook messages.

client.track(params)

Usage (Kik)

Register your Kik bot with Botmetrics. Once you have done so, navigate to "Bot Settings" and find out your Bot ID and API Key.

With that, you can initialize a BotMetrics::Client:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')

Alternatively, you can set the following ENV variables

  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_API_KEY']
  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_BOT_ID']

and initialize a BotMetrics::Client with the default ENV variables:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new

track

Call the track API in the webhook receiver that handles all of your Facebook messages.

client.track(params)

Usage (Slack)

Log in to your BotMetrics account, navigate to "Bot Settings" and find out your Bot ID and API Key.

With that, you can initialize a BotMetrics::Client:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')

Alternatively, you can set the following ENV variables

  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_API_KEY']
  • ENV['BOTMETRICS_BOT_ID']

and initialize a BotMetrics::Client with the default ENV variables:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new

register_bot!

With a BotMetrics::Client instance, every time you create a new Slack Bot (in the OAuth2 callback), and assuming the bot token you received as part of the OAuth2 callback is bot-token, you can make the following call:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')
client.register_bot!('bot-token')

Retroactive Registration

If you created your bot in the past, you can pass in created_at with the UNIX timestamp of when your bot was created, like so:

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')
client.register_bot!('bot-token', created_at: 1462318092)

message

You can send messages to a Slack channel or user using the #message method:

Sending a Message to a Channel

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')
client.message(team_id: 'T123', channel: 'C123', text: 'Hello!')

Sending an Attachment to a User

client = BotMetrics::Client.new(api_key: '123', bot_id: '123')
client.message(
  team_id: 'T123',
  user: 'U123',
  attachments:
    [
      {
          "title": "Title",
          "pretext": "Pretext _supports_ mrkdwn",
          "text": "Testing *right now!*",
          "mrkdwn_in": ["text", "pretext"]
      }
    ]
)

Accepted parameters include:

  • team_id: This is the Slack ID
  • channel: This is the Slack channel's UID
  • user: This is the Slack user's UID
  • text: A string
  • attachments: Attachments that follows the Slack's message attachment structure

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment with the gem.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
