RedBot for Node-RED is the fastest way to build and maintain a chat bot
Build your chat bot visually connecting blocks like receivers, senders, messages, images, etc. without coding. Maintain and fine tuning your chat bot easily. Code once and deploy for Telegram, Facebook Messenger, Slack, Viber, Alexa, Twilio and Smooch
Let your chat bot interact with the Node-RED ecosystem: IoT, databases, external services. More than 1,000 flows and nodes are already available from the community
Soon or later your chat bot must interact with the external world. That is the reason why a chat bot platform must be open source: if you need a feature, just do it or ask the community
Build your chat bot using RiveScript, Recast.ai, Dialogflow.com or other Natural Language Processing algorithms. Extract relevant information (like numbers, email, etc.) from user's sentences easily and store in the user chat context
Use Node-RED projects to easily deploy your chat bot to production with few clicks. With different configuration for production and development the same git-versioned code will work in both environments
Use advanced chat elements like images, audio, maps, inline buttons, text-to voice, QR-codes, etc, capture user's position, image uploads, etc. with simple blocks, all without coding.
