Questions about botpress

Hello,
I’m looking for a Open Source Chatbotsoftware and not sure, wether Botpress would meet the requirements.

When I integrate a botpress bot into a website- is there a way I can influence the surrounding of the bot by botpress actions (f.e. change an avatar image or background color)?

Can multiple User work on the training of a bot the same time?

Is there an online demo botpress bot I could test without installing the whole programm on my computer?

Best regards

Hello @Jindriska,

You can find an example of influencing the host page from chat events here Send an event from the chat?

Ideally, you want to have only 1 person editing a chatbot at the same time. Botpress was not designed with multiple people editing a single chatbot at once.

We don’t have any Botpress instance where you could try without installation. However, getting started with Botpress can be done in 10 minutes by following the tutorials here https://botpress.io/docs/installation and here https://botpress.io/docs/quickstart

If you have any other questions, please let me know :slight_smile:

Hello,

thank you very much. I installed botpress locally, but not sure howto install it on my webserver in order to integrate a botpress pot into my website…can I put the folder just into the same public_html foder, where the rest is stored?

Best regards

Hey @Jindriska,

Your Botpress instance will be deployed as a different process than your web server. Your web server is probably listening on port 80, while Botpress will be listening on a different port (e.g. port 3000).

You can find instructions on hosting here
Let me know if you have further questions.
