Starting with the NodePromptManager project, I decided to built my own bot with it. Since 'The Donald' (love him or hate him.. apparently it makes no difference to him or his popularity) is in the limelight right now, I decided to built a bot in honor of our future President! NOTTTT!!!!
What it does
TheDonald is a simple Prompt App bot written in Node.js+jQuery that spits out the most outrageous statements said by Donald J Trump. This bot receives a message from an SMS/Slack/Prompt website and returns a new Donald Trump quote to the user.
How I built it
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
NodePromptManager -- starter template for building Prompt bots with Nodejs
We spent the first half of HackTech working closely with the founders of http://promptapp.io to learn more about their development platform, which had just been released the day before the hackathon. With no documentation specific to NodeJS, we felt the need to create a boiler plate class for Node--allowing devs to go from 0 to 100 with Prompt bot development. Real quick.
