Clone this repository and run
Create an account on https://app.dialoganalytics.com, grab your Dialog API token and bot ID.
Set environment variables in
FACEBOOK_SECRET_TOKEN=... FACEBOOK_ACCESS_TOKEN=... DIALOG_API_TOKEN=... DIALOG_BOT_ID=...
Get your Facebook Messenger tokens at https://developers.facebook.com. Configure your application's webhook settings in the Facebook developer dashboard to the endpoint on which this server will be listening.
Local development: When developping locally, use a service like https://ngrok.com to expose a server running on your machine. This should be something like
$ ngrok http 4567
Start the bot:
$ bundle exec rackup -p 4567
Open the Messenger application, find your bot and exchange a few messages. Messages will be sent to Dialog's API.
