Furthermore Concierge is compatible with Hubot adapters and scripts.
Make sure you have Node.JS and NPM installed and added to your system PATH before installing Concierge. It is also highly recommended you do the same with GIT.
Installation can either be done using
npm (global or local) or
git (see which approach is right for you here).
npm install concierge-bot -g
git clone https://github.com/concierge/Concierge.git Concierge cd Concierge npm install
NPM (local) For all documentation regarding local installs, refer to Usage Types.
Concierge comes ready-to-run, so to start the bot:
- In the directory being used for Concierge development run the following command:
- NPM global:
- NPM global:
- On the first run, provided GIT is installed some default modules will be installed (see here for details)
- After startup you will see the following prompt:
This is the default
Test integration Concierge assumes if no other is specified during startup (more on this below).
- You can further test the bot's responses by calling a few of the default commands. Try entering
/pingin the terminal and press enter.

Now let's go a step further and connect Concierge with an actual social network
Integrating with a social network
This simply requires installing the social network's
integration in the
kpm is a great module that makes this process a piece of cake. The process can be generalized into the following steps
- Run Concierge and ensure
kpmwas successfully loaded.
/kpm install <integration_name>to install the integration where
<integration_name>is the name of the social network integration.
/kpm configwith appropriate arguments (account email, account password, etc.) to set up the integration for connecting with the social network. Specific arguments and instructions on how to set them can be found in the integration's documentation.
/kpm start <integration_name>to start the integration.
Why not try integrating Concierge with Facebook by following the instructions here.
Links to configuring other integrations can be found in the documentation section below.
Now you can customize your Concierge by installing or creating your own modules.
- You can install an existing modules from the KPM Modules List. Use the
/kpmmodule (which is installed by default) to install using the KPM List.
- You can install any Concierge or Hubot modules from NPM.
- Or create your own modules by following the Module Creation guide.
/help kpm to find out how to install a module or have a look at the KPM List for a more elaborate instructions.
