    Release npm RedBot Forum


    With RedBot you can visually build a full featured chat bot for Telegram, Facebook Messenger, Viber, Twilio and Slack with Node-RED. Almost no coding skills required.

    Node-RED is a tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways.

    Maintaining RedBot is very time-consuming, if you like it, please consider:

    Getting started

    First of all install Node-RED

    $ sudo npm install -g node-red
    

    Then open the user data directory ~/.node-red and install the package

    $ cd ~/.node-red
    $ npm install node-red-contrib-chatbot
    

    Then run

    node-red
    

    The next step is to create a chat bot, I recommend to use Telegram since the setup is easier ( Telegram allows polling to receive messages, so it's not necessary to create a https certificate). Use @BotFather to create a chat bot, follow instructions here then copy you access token.

    Then open your Node-RED and add a Telegram Receiver, in the configuration panel, add a new bot and paste the token

    Telegram Receiver

    Now add a Message node and connect to the Telegram Receiver

    Simple Message

    Finally add a Telegram Sender node, don't forget to select in the configuration panel the same bot of the Telegram Receiver, this should be the final layout

    Example Simple

    Now you have a useful bot that answers "Hi there!" to any received message. We can do a lot better.
