Use as a library

To use Elda as a library, run:

npm install elda-ai --save

Then create the script example.js as follows:

var elda = require('elda-ai');
var messages = [
  'hello',
  'what is this for?',
  'help!',
  'lets take this from the top'
];

elda().then(function(instance) {
  messages.forEach(function(message) {
    instance.respondTo(message).then(console.log);
  });
});

Run the example using the command:

node example.js

Library Structure

api.js

This is the public interface to Elda.

elda(config)

This method configures and returns an API object, which can then be used to interact with Elda.

var elda = require('elda-ai');
var config = {};
var api = elda(config);

api.respondTo(message)

This method interprets a message, and forms a response.

var elda = require('elda-ai');
var message = 'Add event Kate\'s birthday party, at 5pm tomorrow';
elda().respondTo(message).then(console.log);
