Here is a ready to use JAICF bot template that can be run locally or deployed to Heroku server with Caila NLU provider and JAICP channels.
You can use this template locally on your PC or deploy it on Heroku server.
To run this project locally:
WebhookConnection.kt. Using PollingConnection does not require exposed HTTP URL.
You can then propagate your local instance to the Internet using ngrok.
And then run
ngrok http 8080 in the terminal to obtain public URL.
Copy this URL then and set it in JAICP Web Interface
You can create channels in JAICP Web Interface. Select channels tab inside your project, create a new one, let's say, Chat Widget, and then restart your connection (Webhook or Polling) to register changes in channels. From now on you will be able to communicate with your bot through widget.
Same applies to Telegram, Dialogflow, Facebook, and other channels.
Just click on the button below to deploy this template on Heroku server.
There are two ways how to set JAICP Access Token to heroku:
JAICP_ACCESS_TOKENin web dashboard, as shown here.
src/main/conf/jaicp.properties, and upload changes to heroku. After token was set, you need to restart application in Heroku.
Please make the next steps to upload your changes on Heroku.
heroku login heroku git:clone -a <your Heroku application name> cd <your Heroku application name> git remote add origin https://github.com/just-ai/jaicf-jaicp-caila-template git pull origin master
You have to do these steps only once.
Once you are ready to upload your changes to Heroku, just type
git add . git commit -am "some comments" git push
Heroku will build and deploy your changes automatically.
This template uses mongoDB persistence layer available on Heroku. Heroku automatically creates a free sandbox database hosted by MongoLab.
During the local development a simple in-memory storage is used.
