Build Status

This project is Yeoman Generator with CI/CD for Microsoft Bot Framework a.k.a BotBuilder. It started with a fork from DarqueWarrior/generator-team where Donovan Brown created a great yeoman generator for several languages and DevOps targeting different platforms. Based on this yo csebot yeoman generator, I had the need to be able to speed up project kickoffs with botbuilder. I'm sharing this with the community - feel free to colaboration, raise issues, and ask for features!

With this generator, you can pick your language, and it will create Bot boilerplates projects with complete CI and CD on VSTS or TFS.

  • Csharp (C#)
