    Greenkeeper badge Hey, I'm Sprucebot! This CLI was designed to give you the tools you need to begin building skills to help brick-and-mortar businesses thrive in the Internet age.

    Our goal is to connect people, not replace them. So make sure your skill promotes human-to-human connection.

    Skills Development

    First there were desktop applications, then mobile apps, now we are entering the Decade of the Skill! 💥💥💥

    They are the next step in App Evolution. They are interface agnostic. They react to real world events.

    Beyond reacting JUST voice commands (Alexa -COMING SOON-, Google Home -COMING SOON-, HomePod -COMING SOON-). I can chat through pretty much any interface (sms, Facebook Messenger -COMING SOON-, etc.), I know when teammates arrive at work, when guests arrive at local businesses, when business owners ask to borrow a ladder from a neighbor -COMING SOON-, when guests message a business, EVEN WHEN SOMEONE BOOKS A HAIRCUT -COMING SOON-!! 💇

    But, to be clear; I take privacy very seriously and as a Skills Developer, I'm not gonna share much with you. Seriously, all you'll get is the guest's first name and a link to their profile photo in a few sizes. Oh, and you can only access data your skill collects. All data shared between skills is done through the emitting of events.

    Anyway, what was I saying before things got all serious?

    It's the ultimate social network, and with your skills giving me the power to facilitate amazing experiences, brick-and-mortar, ma and pa shops will live long into the future. 🌲🤖
