Connect your Bot to the World - XML, JSON, Web Services, HTML Scraping, Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, Email

by admin posted Jun 27 2016, 12:50

Bot Libre now supports integrating with XML and JSON web services, HTML scraping, and access to Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, email, and other services. From our scripting languages Self, and AIML you can now access any web service that returns XML or JSON data. You can also scrape information from HTML web pages, and send emails, tweets, Facebook posts, Telegram posts, and more.

Web Services

A web service is an Internet service that provides information on the web. There are countless APIs available on the web that provide every type of service imaginable, such as Google Maps, Twitter, Twilio SMS, and eBay. There also many Internet directories to help you find and use web services such as ProgrammableWeb.

Bot Libre provides web service support through its Self scripting language, and through the AIML scripting language. Bot Libre also provides a script library of common scripts to access many useful web services.

XML Web Services

XML is the parent markup language to HTML. XML defines a text based data format consisting of the data's attributes, elements, and text data. To call an XML webservice you use a web URL with either a GET request, or a POST request.

Bot Libre supports both GET and POST request with Self, and supports GET requests with AIML.

XML GET Example

This example uses the GeoNames web service from GeoNames.org. Geonames can return place names and other geographic information, given a postal code, or other geographic information.

You can apply the same pattern to access many other XML web services.

URL

XML Result
<geonames> <totalResultsCount>6</totalResultsCount> <code> <postalcode>90210</postalcode> <name>Beverly Hills</name> <countryCode>US</countryCode> <lat>34.09011</lat> <lng>-118.40648</lng> <adminCode1>CA</adminCode1> <adminName1>California</adminName1> <adminCode2>037</adminCode2> <adminName2>Los Angeles</adminName2> <adminCode3/> <adminName3/> </code> </geonames>

Self Example

You can access web services from Self using a Template object in a response, or from a script. The Http class is used calling the requestXML method and passing the URL, and an optional XPath expression that extract the desired data from the XML document.

XPath is a standard navigation query syntax to access or extract data from an XML document. If an XPath is not given, the call will automatically convert the XML data to a Self object. You can access the object's data using the standard JavaScript dot notation. It is much more efficient to use an XPath, so the entire XML document does not need to be converted and persisted as a Self object.

This example is also available in our script library here

AIML Example

You can access a web service from AIML using the SRAIX tag. SRAIX is an AIML tag used to call other services, or other bots. SRAIX has several attributes, the service must be set to XML to access an XML service, and the URL is given as the SRAIX body. An XPath expression must be provided to the call to extract the desired text data from the XML document.

This example is also available in our script library here

<aiml> <category> <pattern>Guess where I live</pattern> <template>What is your postal code?</template> </category> <category> <pattern>*</pattern> <that>What is your postal code</that> <template>You live in <sraix service="XML" hint="code/name">http://api.geonames.org/postalCodeSearch?maxRows=1&username=demo&postalcode=<star/></sraix>.</template> </category> </aiml>

XML POST Example

An XML POST request sends, and receives XML data. Many web services use POST requests so the application can provide data to the call.

This example will actually call the Bot Libre web API using a POST request. This is somewhat unusual, as the bot is already on Bot Libre, but this lets one bot talk to another bot. Be careful doing this, as you do not want bots to get into loops or cycles. You can use this same pattern to call any other web service that takes and returns XML data, even call bots on other servers or APIs. Bot Libre also provides the sraix AIML tag and the request() Self API to allow bots to talk to other bots on Bot Libre or other services such as PandoraBots, and PersonalityForge.

Self Example

This example uses a Self state to forward a question to Brain Bot when the user says "ask Brain Bot".

This example is also available in our script library here

state AskBrainBot { pattern "ask brain bot" template askBrainBot(); function askBrainBot() { // Get what the user said previously, and ask Brain Bot the question. var previous = conversation.input[-2].input; var message = new Object(); message.message = previous; message.root = "chat"; message.@instance = "165"; message.@application = "yourappid"; var result = Http.postXML("http://www.botlibre.com/rest/api/chat", message); if (result == null) { return "Brain Bot is not available"; } return "He says: " + result.message; } }

JSON Web Services

JSON is the standard text base object format for JavaScript. JSON can be used to convert any JavaScript object to text, and included attributes, nested objects, and arrays. To call a JSON webservice you use a web URL with either a GET request, or a POST request.

Bot Libre supports both GET and POST request with Self, and supports GET requests with AIML.

JSON GET Example

This example uses the GeoNames web service from GeoNames.org. Geonames can return place names and other geographic information, given a postal code, or other geographic information.

You can apply the same pattern to access many other JSON web services.

URL

JSON Result
{"postalCodes":[{"adminCode2":"037","adminCode1":"CA","adminName2":"Los Angeles County","lng":-118.406477,"countryCode":"US","postalCode":"90210","adminName1":"California","placeName":"Beverly Hills","lat":34.090107}]}

Self Example

You can access web services from Self using a Template object in a response, or from a script. The Http class is used calling the requestJSON method and passing the URL, and an optional attribute that extract the desired data from the JSON document.

This example is also available in our script library here

AIML Example

You can access a web service from AIML using the SRAIX tag. SRAIX is an AIML tag used to call other services, or other bots. SRAIX has several attributes, the service must be set to JSON to access a JSON service, and the URL is given as the SRAIX body. A object attribute must be provided to the call to extract the desired text data from the JSON document.

Only basic JSON web services can be called with AIML, as AIML is texted based, not object based. Only direct attributes can be accessed. Since our GeoNames examples returns complex data, an AIML example is not possible.

HTML Scraping

HTML is the markup language used in all websites on the Internet. You can access data from an HTML page using the URL for the page, and an XPath expression to extract the data. Refer to the XML example for a description of XPath.

Bot Libre supports HTML scraping with Self, and AIML.

HTML Example

You can access HTML data from Self using a Template object in a response, or from a script. The Http class is used calling the requestHTML method and passing the URL, and an XPath expression that extracts the desired data from the HTML document.

This example is also available in our script library here

AIML HTML Example

You can access a web service from AIML using the SRAIX tag. SRAIX is an AIML tag used to call other services, or other bots. SRAIX has several attributes, the service must be set to HTML to access an XML service, and the URL is given as the SRAIX body. An XPath expression must be provided to the call to extract the desired text data from the XML document.

This example is also available in our script library here

<aiml> <category> <pattern>lookup url *</pattern> <template>It is about <sraix service="html" hint="head/meta[@name='description']/@content"><star/></sraix>.</template> </category> </aiml>

Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Email, SMS, RSS

Bot Libre provides several other classes in Self for accessing other services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, SMS, email, RSS feed, and more.

For example, if your bot is connected to a Twitter account, you can have the bot send a tweet using:

Twitter.tweet("hello world");

This can be used to forward posts from one service to another, or escalate a chat session to email, or notify a human agent using SMS. There lots of examples scripts, here.

When you can connect your bot to the whole world, the possibilities are endless. We can't wait to see what you will build.

The function is,

Http.requestXML(url, xpath)

The error is most likely because you are calling the function with the wrong number of arguments.
If you include your code, I can correct it.

The requestXML() function takes two parameters, but the requestJSON() only takes one currently (this will soon be fixed to allow a second attribute argument).

Http.requestXML(url, xpath)

Http.requestJSON(url)

The JSON API returns an object converted from the JSON. You can use "." to traverse it.

i.e.
var result = Http.requestJSON("http://api.geonames.org/postalCodeSearchJSON?maxRows=1&username=botlibre&postalcode=92590"); result = result.postalCodes.get(#element, 0).placeName;


The get() can be used to get an element from a JSON array.

Well.... none of that worked. I'm assuming that this is only available on botlibre.com and NOT available via source code or supplied ai-engine.jar (ver 4.0).

I'm now trying a hack... which seems to work. I just can't figure out how to get the response from the call. I have validated that the call goes out (and I see the proper/valid response in the log). Any clue?

Sample code:

 

state tacosAI {

case input goto test;

state test
{


function thatsoWordState() {
//var result = Http.requestJSON("http://api.geonames.org/postalCodeSearchJSON?maxRows=1&username=botlibre&postalcode=92590");
var result = request (null, { server : "http://api.pathient.com/spectation/hello?nothing="});
if (result == null) {
return "Something went wrong.";
}
return result.code.content + " target";

}
}
}

The Http class is new, it is available on BotLibre.com, but not available in the BotLibre.org open source AI engine yet.

We will hopefully update the GitHub source to version 4.4 soon. For now you can test your script on BotLibre.com

The Self request() API implements the AIML2 SRAIX functionality. In the Bot Libre 4.0 code it can only be used to call other AIML2 compatible services, like forwarding a question to another bot. In 4.4 it will also be able to access XML and JSON web services, and scrape HTML.

The error has nothing to do with WordPress.
It seems to be an error with the bot trying to send a message to an invalid user. My guess is you sent a message to the page as the page, so Facebook does not allow the page to reply to itself.

On the conversation log the bots answer appear normally but the facebook messenger dont retrieve its response. I think it may be oAuth config but I don't know how to configure. I've tried in wordpress configure the wp-oAuth api but had the same experience. On the messenger all the responses parses but only the response that come from wordpress rest api doesnt.

It sounds like you did not connect your bot to Facebook Messenger correctly.
Ensure you,
  • Created a Facebook app at https://developers.facebook.com
  • Used its app id and secret to authorize your bot
  • Selected the correct Facebook page when you clicked "Connect"
  • Ensure you setup your Facebook app correctly, and registered the webhook correctly
  • Ensure you subscribed your app to the correct page.
  • Ensure you used the apps page token, and saved in it your bot's properties.

You can parse JSON results from a web service call in a Self script, use,

Http.requestJSON(url)

This will automatically convert the JSON object to an object in Self.
You can then access its state.

var result = Http.requestJSON(url);
var message = result[1].message;

See,
https://www.botlibre.com/forum-post?id=13020078

You can include a link to a pdf or other file from a response. Responses can include HTML links and other HTML tags.

You can also upload a file to your bot from its Chat page and it will give you the URL to the file.

You can parse a text file from Self using,

Http.requestText(url)

I want to use substring to take string in form like "My last answer is this" then applying s.substring(3,s.size()) it returns "last answer is this" but my concerns is If I used previous last answer to substring it wont work. I have user 
var a = conversation.getLast(#input, 1).input ; //The string is: My last answer is this

var  s = a.substring(3,a.size());

returns "";

Even if i used to find size of that last answer it returns only 3 using a.size().

& one more I have in trouble, I want to post some data to request service url how it could be done if url is in post method?

It should work the same. Try using the debug() to see what is occurring.

var a = conversation.getLast(#input, 1).input;
debug(a);
var s = a.substring(3,a.size());

The debug will be printed to the log in chat if you click on the "debug" checkbox while chatting and select FINE as the level.

Also try ensuring it is a string.

a = a.toString();
var s = a.substring(3, a.size());

For an HTTP POST request use,

(XML)
Http.postXML(url, xmlObject);

or, (JSON)
Http.postJSON(url, jsonObject);

or, (form params)
Http.postHTML(url, params);

If you ant to pass a value from your page to the bot, you need to use JavaScript for this. You would pass the value to the bot through a message or a command.

The bot could also parse a file from a URL, or send a request to a web service.
If you have an XML or JSON file online, the bot can parse it in Self using,

Http.requestXML(url)

or,

Http.requestJSON(url)

To access data from an HTML file you need to scrape the data from the HTML using an XPath,

Http.requestHTML(url, xpath)

Need to think I want to use stored specific values need not to fetch from user. Only once it fetched used in many other calls with same value, how would I achieve that.

 

And also how am I used HTML form to submit form by button click in response of chat bot ex.

pattern "get login details" answer callthis();

function callthis(){

var temp = "<form><input type='text' name='username' placeholder='your name...'><button type='button' name='submitloggincred' onclick='"+submitloggincred()+"'>Submit</button></form>";

Everything is persistent in Self, so storing data is easy.

If you want to store something specific to a user, you can store it on their user object using the "speaker" variable.

speaker.userid = "user1";
speaker.password = "12345";

To store something specific to the current conversation use the "conversation" variable.

conversation.userid = "user1";
conversation.password = "12345";

To store a global variable use the "#" symbol to create a global symbol object.

#credentials.userid = "user1";
#credentials.password = "12345";

To use a variable in a GET or POST call just set in in the parameters.

var info = Http.requestJSON("
https://www.api.com/fetch?user=" + speaker.userid + "&password=" + speaker.password);

It depends what you want the bot to do with the file.

For an XML file call,

var xml = Http.requestXML(url, xpath);

For HTML call,

var html = Http.requestHTML(url, xpath);

For JSON use,

var json = Http.requestJSON(url);

For CSV use,

var csv = Http.requestCSV(url);

For text use,

var text = Http.requestText(url);

What kind of file are you uploading, for what purpose?

To upload a script to a bot use,

SDKConnection.saveBotScriptSource()

https://github.com/BotLibre/BotLibre/blob/master/sdk/android/src/org/botlibre/sdk/SDKConnection.java

There is also a web API,

/rest/api/create-bot-attachment

That can create a file link.

Not sure I understand.
What is the file, and what do you want the bot to do with it?

In general you can add a link to a bot's message to link a file.
You can upload the file to any file hosting service such as Drop Box to get a link for it. The bot's also have there own file repository you can create a link in if you wish. But basically you need to upload the file somewhere and return the link to it in the bot's message.

i.e.
bot: Here is a link
https://www.dropbox.com/EERGRTRTHTH.zip

or,
bot: Here is a <a href="https://www.dropbox.com/EERGRTRTHTH.zip">file</a>

For YouTube a link is all you want to put into the bot's message. Telegram will automatically show YouTube videos. If you have a specific video file, you need to upload it to the web somewhere then you can include a video tag in the bot's message. i.e. bot: Here is a video Bot Libre will automatically convert the HTML video tag into a Telegram video message (same for image and audio). For other types of files you need to include a link in the message, Bot Libre cannot send the file directly in the message.

Not sure I understand, perhaps give more details.
Also, this does not sound like it has anything to do with this post, so please post a separate post.

Each bot interaction occurs in the context of a conversation. Bots store all their conversations in their knowledge base.

There is a web API "get-conversations" that will let you query the bot's conversations using a "response-search" XML argument.

If you want to display a users conversation history you would need to ensure the user is connected as the same unique user each time. Currently there is no way to filter the conversations by user, so you would need to search the conversations to find ones for that user.

We are looking into enhancing this, and providing a direct-message style chat interface into bots. So maybe better to keep a local history for now.
