    A framework for creating Webex Teams bots using node and express

    In this post, we’re going to walk through the steps for building a simple Webex chatbot with Node.js and the webex-node-bot-framework. We’ll be able to add our chatbot to a Webex team space or direct messaging space. As long as the chatbot’s backend server is running, the chatbot will be able to respond in Webex—to you, or to anyone else in the team space.

  • faker.js

    generate massive amounts of realistic fake data in Node.js and the browser (by 9renpoto)

    We also use the faker package (locked to version 5.5.3, since the latest version no longer works as expected). This library is often used for generating fake test data, but its API includes a set of calls for generating company buzz phrases. That’s what Buzz will use to generate the phrases we’re looking for.

  • Appwrite

    📦🐈 Active development trunk for Yarn ⚒

    First, we’ll initialize a new Node.js project for our server, using yarn. In a terminal on your local machine, do the following:

  • Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Our chatbot uses the webex-node-bot-framework, which abstracts away the complexities of Webex bot creation, allowing you to build chatbot interaction through a Node.js Express server and event listeners.
