HelloBot is built using Jekyll and rivescript-js for the bot interpreter engine. HelloBot is live and currently being hosted using GitHub Pages for demo purpose. HelloBot contains terminal-like interface designed using Bootstrap, jQueryTerminal and jquery-mousewheel.
hnbot is using a similar interface design with HelloBot, and the only difference is that hnbot is built based on Node.js and Socket.IO. Also similarly to HelloBot, hnbot’s interpreter engine is based on RiveScript NPM package.
To run the hnbot demo locally, you need Git and Node.js installed, then run following commands:
git clone https://github.com/heiswayi/hnbot.git cd hnbot npm install npm start
N.B. These apps are just proof-of-concept, and I don’t have the time to design the “bot brain” for specific application purpose. If you’re playing with the demo, the current “bot brain” is based on predefined samples.
