NuGram Hosted Server client APIs

This repository provides the Ruby client API to the NuGram Hosted Server in various languages. It is based on the Ruby library available at https://github.com/nuecho/nugramserver-clients.

NuGram Hosted Server (www.grammarserver.com) is a free hosted service for the management of static and dynamic grammars, courtesy of Nu Echo Inc. It can be used to generate dynamic grammars, and interpret textual sentences.

Installation

gem install nugramserver-ruby

Example

Say you want to create a dynamically-generated grammar for a simple voice-dialing application. The grammar template, hosted on www.grammarserver.com, could look like the following:

voicedialing.abnf (ABNF template grammar)

#ABNF 1.0;

language en-US;
mode voice;
root $voicedialing;

public $voicedialog = 
  [$politeness]
  @for (entry : entries) 
    ( [@word entry.firstname] @word entry.lastname 
      @tag "out.id = '" entry.id "'" @end )
  @end
  [please]
;

$politeness = 
    (I would | I'd) like to (speak with| talk to) 
  | give me
;

And the code to instantiate the grammar would look like:

app.rb (Ruby)

require 'nugramserver-ruby'
server = GrammarServer.new()
session = server.create_session("username", "password")
grammar = session.instantiate("voicedialing.abnf", 
                              {'entries' => 
                                [{'firstname' => "John", 'lastname' => 'Doe', 'id' => '1234'},
                                 {'firstname' => "Bill", 'lastname' => 'Smith', 'id' => '4321'}]})
puts "grammar url = ", grammar.get_url('grxml')
# ....
# When you are done with the grammar...
session.disconnect
