Web Designer - - 20 Hot Tools To Try Today - Con­ver­sa­tional in­ter­faces, or chat­bots, have ex­ploded in pop­u­lar­ity in re­cent years. You might think that build­ing a bot is a fairly com­plex un­der­tak­ing com­pared to putting to­gether a sin­gle-page app, but it doesn’t have to be.

Bottender is a JS frame­work for build­ing cross-plat­form bots run­ning on Node.js, and comes with sup­port for pop­u­lar mes­sag­ing plat­forms like Face­book Mes­sen­ger, Tele­gram and Slack. For test­ing pur­poses, it also makes it easy to run your bot in the con­sole. It’s very early days yet for Bottender, but this is one to keep an eye on as this type of project opens up many op­por­tu­ni­ties to build in­ter­faces which would oth­er­wise have been out of reach.
