Are there any good APIs out there that integrate well with GroupMe?

I’m not familiar with GroupMe, but I can see they have a Public API which also includes a section on Bots. They also seem to have a neat Bots Tutorial which may be helpful.

As far as I can tell it shouldn’t be hard to integrate it with API.AI’s API, or any other similar API for that matter — the only purpose of these APIs is to process a sample of “natural language” (text message, or speech) and return some useful action, something that tells your software what to do next. For example, your software would get a message from GroupMe, fetch a response from API.AI based on that message, and then send back an appropriate message to GroupMe.

As for the websockets part of you question, I’m not sure I understand it… You can set up a callback url on your end, and there you’d basically “listen” to the appropriate conversations. Per their tutorial article: … each message sent to the group by any member will be posted to that callback url 

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
