General Bots

General Bot Logo

General Bot is a strongly typed package based chat bot server focused in convention over configuration and code-less approaches, which brings software packages and application server concepts to help parallel bot development.

What is a Bot Server?

Bot Server accelerates the process of developing a bot. It provisions all code base, resources and deployment to the cloud, and gives you templates you can choose from whenever you need a new bot. The server has a database and service backend allowing you to further modify your bot package directly by downloading a zip file, editing and uploading it back to the server (deploying process) with no code. The Bot Server also provides a framework to develop bot packages in a more advanced fashion writing custom code in editors like Visual Studio Code, Atom or Brackets.

Everyone can create bots by just copying and pasting some files and using their favorite tools from Office (or any text editor) or Photoshop (or any image editor). BASIC can be used to build custom dialogs so Bot can be extended just like VBA for Excel (currently in alpha).
