About

I wanted to build a bot host/framework that was easy to work with, but also has the potential of being super powerful.

Noobot supports DI out of the box for all custom elements to ensure all elements could be easily tested and predictable.

Noobot is available as a Nuget package or standalone Console/Windows Service app.

Features

  • Available as a Nuget package to integrate into your apps (See examples)
  • Is super extensible
  • DI support out of the box
  • Automatically builds up help text with all supported commands
  • Middleware can send multiple messages for each message received
  • Supports long running processes (async)
  • Typing Indicator - indicate to the end user that the bot has received the message and is processing the request

Examples

You can find some examples of how to use the Nuget package in different scenarios at Noobot.Examples

Download & setup
