Step #2: Building the chatbot

Once you have created a new chatbot, you can edit the code and test the bot directly from our platform. The code is written in botSON, a JSON based programming language to create chatbots. It is a minimal but very powerful language specifically designed to build conversational interfaces so it very easy to use. You can have a look at our documentation to get started!

Step #3: Integrating the chatbot to Facebook Messenger

As soon as your chatbot is built, you can integrate it very quickly to Facebook Messenger. First, go to the channels tab and click on add a new channel then select Facebook Messenger. If you have a Facebook page connect your bot to it by clicking on "Connect Facebook" otherwise you will have to create one by following the link and connecting it to Facebook later.
