API

Versioning

The default API version is 20200513. You can target a specific version by setting the env variable WIT_API_VERSION.

Overview

pywit provides a Wit class with the following methods:

  • message - the Wit message API
  • speech - the Wit speech API
  • interactive - starts an interactive conversation with your bot

Wit class

The Wit constructor takes the following parameters:

  • access_token - the access token of your Wit instance

A minimal example looks like this:

from wit import Wit

client = Wit(access_token)
client.message('set an alarm tomorrow at 7am')

.message()

The Wit message API.

Takes the following parameters:

  • msg - the text you want Wit.ai to extract the information from

Example:

resp = client.message('what is the weather in London?')
print('Yay, got Wit.ai response: ' + str(resp))

.speech()

The Wit speech API.

Takes the following parameters:

  • audio_file - a file handler opened in binary mode
  • headers - (optional) the dict of headers (e.g. "Content-Type")

Example:

resp = None
with open('test.wav', 'rb') as f:
  resp = client.speech(f, {'Content-Type': 'audio/wav'})
print('Yay, got Wit.ai response: ' + str(resp))

.interactive()

Starts an interactive conversation with your bot.

Example:

client.interactive()

See the docs for more information.

Logging

Default logging is to STDOUT with INFO level.

You can set your logging level as follows:

from wit import Wit
import logging
client = Wit(token)
client.logger.setLevel(logging.WARNING)

You can also specify a custom logger object in the Wit constructor:

from wit import Wit
client = Wit(access_token=access_token, logger=custom_logger)

See the logging module and logging.config docs for more information.
