An extensible chatbot written in rust.

Circle CI

About

The construction is inspired by Hubot's extensibility. There is an ever-growing list of service adapters and message handlers as part of the project.

To get started, you might make a main function that looks like the following. Once you get that running, check out the documentation to add more packaged message handlers or write your own.

#[macro_use(handler)]
extern crate chatbot;

use chatbot::Chatbot;
use chatbot::adapter::CliAdapter;

fn main() {
    let mut bot = Chatbot::new("chatbot_name");

    let echo = handler!("EchoHandler", r"echo .+", |_, msg| {
        Some(msg.to_owned())
    });

    bot.add_handler(echo);
    bot.add_adapter(CliAdapter::new());

    bot.run();
}

Contributing

Contributions are very welcome on this project. To get started, fork the repo and clone it locally. You should be able to just do cargo run and get a working ping and github handler on the command line. If you want to run the test program using the Slack adapter, do cargo run -- --adapter slack.
