This module allows developers to interact with the Cleverbot API without needing an official API key, providing a convenient and cost-effective way to integrate Cleverbot chatbot features into their projects.

🔒 Security

The module selects a User Agent randomly from an array and uses it to send requests to cleverbot.com. Each restart of the application results in the selection of a different user agent at random.

⚠️ Warning

Using this module could potentially lead to a permanent IP ban on cleverbot.com, although this is unlikely.

This module provides free access to Cleverbot's API, but it is crucial to use it responsibly, keeping in mind that Cleverbot.com may act against IP addresses that misuse their service. Therefore, consider the following guidelines:

  • Use Responsibly: Avoid excessive requests to Cleverbot in a short period. Adhere to their terms of service.
  • Testing and Development: Ideal for testing and development purposes. Not recommended for high-traffic or production applications to prevent IP bans.
  • Use at Your Own Risk: Users assume responsibility for any potential consequences, including IP bans or other actions by Cleverbot.com.
  • Consider Official API Key: For extensive and commercial use, consider obtaining an official API key from Cleverbot for reliable and uninterrupted access.

📥 Installation

Install this module using npm 🟥 or yarn 🐈:

npm install free-cleverbot
yarn add free-cleverbot

    the module provides detailed debug information.

💬 Example (see also example.js)

const CleverBot = require('free-cleverbot');

CleverBot.config({
    debug: false,
    defaultLanguage: 'en',
    maxRetryAttempts: 5,
    retryBaseCooldown: 4000,
    cookieExpirationTime: 15768000
});

const message = 'Do you like cats? >w<';
const context = [];

(async () => {
    const response = await CleverBot.interact(message, context); // `Input`, `conversation context`, `language` is not required if you are using `CleverBot.config` with `defaultLanguage`

    /*
     * Add the user's message first to the context followed by Cleverbot's
     * response to maintain the correct conversational order.
     */
    context.push(message); // User's message 
    context.push(response); // Cleverbot's response

    console.log(response);
})();
