Connecting your bot or app available on multiple platforms can be long and tedious.

Broid allows you to do this very quickly.

1. Sign in on all the platforms you want to implement

Discord, Messenger, Slack, Twitter etc..

2. Create an nodeJS project

$ mkdir mynewapp
$ cd mynewapp && npm init

3. Add the libraries

$ npm i --save broid-twitter \
broid-slack \
broid-twitter \
broid-viber \
broid-line \
broid-kik \
broid-flowdock \
broid-callr \
broid-twilio \
broid-skype \
broid-discord \
broid-messenger \
broid-telegram \
rxjs \

4. Connect your application

Each Broid integration provides you an observable, the first part of the code can look like:

Now your application can connect to all messaging platforms.

5. Listen to incoming messages

Really simple:

At this point, your application can receive all messages coming from theses platforms.

6. Respond to an hello world message
