Basic Example

A basic conversational application based on maxbot looks something like this:

from maxbot import MaxBot

bot = MaxBot.inline("""
- condition: message.text.lower() in ['hello', 'hi']
response: Good day to you!
- condition: message.text.lower() in ['good bye', 'bye']
response: OK. See you later.
- condition: true
response: Sorry I don"t understand.

while True:
message = {"text": input("🧑: ")}
commands = bot.process_message(message)
for command in commands:
print("🤖:", command["text"])

So what did that code do?

  • First we imported the MaxBot class. An instance of this class will be our bot.
  • Next we create an instance of this class using factory classmethod MaxBot.inline. This method allows us to define all the necessary resources, such as intents and dialog nodes, right in the code instead of external files.
  • At each step of the conversation loop we receive a message from the user and process it with our bot.
  • The method bot.process_message returns a list of commands. These commands are printed as a response to the user.

Save this code as To run the application, use the python command. Type some messages and you get similar output:

$ python
🧑: Hello
🤖: Good day to you!
🧑: Good bye
🤖: OK. See you later.
🧑: |
