Difference between bot started by double click of bp.exe and full steps from command prompt


Hi All,

I am very new to botpress. So need your help in having a few of my confusions cleared.

I downloaded botpress, unzipped, and first time started by double clicking bp.exe in botpress folder. it was pretty good, it gave me dashboard to make flows, also used builtins and cusotm actions there are bit.

Now today I discovered that youtube had a nice video with title: Getting Started with Botpress – Installation

I was successful in creating the bot with that as well I have few questions on it:

  1. Why we do have these two approaches?

  2. In the first approach, I had corresponding web url as “http://localhost:3000/s/erp5”. What is Web URL for this second approach bot?
