Quick Example

In this example we can see the basis of a simple bot which responds to the keywords sent by a user, the words are: info, hello, hi. You can see how to create the bot and implement the flows.

import { createBot, createProvider, createFlow, addKeyword, MemoryDB } from '@builderbot/bot'
import { BaileysProvider } from '@builderbot/provider-baileys'

const welcomeFlow = addKeyword<BaileysProvider, MemoryDB>(['hello', 'hi'])
    .addAnswer('Ey! welcome')
    .addAnswer(`Send image from URL`, { media: '' })

const main = async () => {

    const adapterDB = new MemoryDB()
    const adapterFlow = createFlow([welcomeFlow])
    const adapterProvider = createProvider(BaileysProvider)

    const { handleCtx, httpServer } = await createBot({
        flow: adapterFlow,
        provider: adapterProvider,
        database: adapterDB,

    httpServer(3000)'/v1/messages', handleCtx(async (bot, req, res) => {
        const { number, message } = req.body
        await bot.sendMessage(number, message, {})
        return res.end('send')
