It should only take three simple steps to get up and running with Bottr.
Install Node & NPM using Homebrew
$ brew install node
Install the Bottr command line tool
$ npm install -g bottr-cli
Create a new project folder and initialise a new project
$ mkdir <YourBotName> && cd <YourBotName> && bottr init
Your project should have a
index.js which declares a basic bot.
If you run
bottr start, open
localhost:3000 in your browser and send it something the bot should reply with a response that indicates we haven’t taught it to do anything yet.
