Botmaster fulfill

Battle-tested middleware for botmaster

Enable chatbots to perform actions on Node.js.

Developers write "action specs" that specify how an XML tag should be replaced in a chatbot response, such as confirming that the action was performed simply returning an empty string so that the tag is removed.

Chatbot designers then place the XML tags in their flows for easy integration.

pause, greet botmaster-fulfill-actions
button, buttons botmaster-button

Quick start

const Botmaster = require('botmaster');
const {fulfillOutgoingWare} = require('botmaster-fulfill');
const botsSettings = require('./my-bots-settings');
const botmaster = new Botmaster({botsSettings});
const actions = {
        hi: {
            controller: () => 'hi there!'
        bye: {
            controller: () => 'bye please come again'
botmaster.use('outgoing', outgoing({actions}));
botmaster.once('update', bot => bot.sendMessage('<hi />'));
botmaster.once('update', bot => bot.sendMessage('<bye />'));

Fulfill any actions found in the input text


  • actions Object actions to run
  • context Object an object of aditional properties to expost though params
  • input String the string to look for actions in

  • fulfillPromise Array? Used to let controllers know that fulfill has completed (or hit an error) even though this is a recursed function. You probably don't need to use this.
