https://bottender.js.org 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.
