What I learnt from building a chatbot without a framework (Part 2/2)
Kevin Lee

I have been looking into building a bot that has support for Facebook + Slack. Mostly there doesn’t seem to be a good framework around (like a node framework) to build a bot with generators etc. Microsoft has a framework but I am not a big fan of that cause it ties too much into the Microsoft eco-system.

Anyway — my plan is to build a node framework that supports the basic bot builder requirements

  • Signup + Authorization layer
  • API layer
  • Parser
  • Histories
  • Analytics
  • Bot platform API access (generic + custom)

I found some of the things you mentioned on your first post really interesting. Keep up the good work! I’ll update you on what I am up to on this too.
