Our Projects

Below is a list of Botwiki Foundation's projects. Feel free to reach out to us on Twitter or via email!

Botwiki

Botwiki

Botwiki is an open-source collection of tutorials, articles, datasets and other resources for creating useful, interesting, artistic and friendly online bots -- smart software agents that do fun or useful stuff -- for Twitter, Slack, IRC and other online networks.

If you'd like to contribute to Botwiki.org, check out this GitHub repo. We also have a neat submit form that lets you suggests bots that you think we should include on the site.

Botmakers

Botmakers.org

Botmakers.org is a friendly community for botmakers and bot enthusiasts on Slack and on meetup.com. Botmakers is open to everyone regardless their level of technical knowledge. We share ideas, resources, tips -- things that might eventually end up on Botwiki.

We also have a Code of Conduct -- and it applies to our bots as well!

Bot Ethics

Bot Ethics is a growing collections of essays and articles that help you understand the ever increasing role of automation and algorithms in human society, and if you are a botmaker, provide resources to avoid the common pitfalls.

Bot! zine

Botzine.org

Bot! zine is an online newsletter for botmakers and bot enthusiasts, powered by Revue, and maintained by Veronica.

It goes out every Monday and features newest bots, libraries, news, and interesting articles and other resources.

Botmaker Badges

Botmaker Badges

Using Mozilla's Open Badges and Badgr, we are issuing Botmaker Badges to people who create bots and resources for botmakers!

Monthly Bot Challenge

Monthly Bot Challenge

An ongoing monthly bot hackathon, currently on hold. See the Monthly Bot Challenge page for details!

Bot Workshops

Bot Workshops

Botwiki's Bot Workshops are envisioned as a series of events (mostly online, possibly also offline) for botmakers of all levels of technical expertise: artists, tinkerers, enthusiasts, seasoned pros.

Original tutorials

The Botwiki team also produces original tutorials.

Botwiki Corpora API

Botwiki Corpora API

Botwiki Corpora API provides free access to the Corpora data.

Sidekick

Sidekick

Sidekick is a multi-network bot that helps you manage your Slack-based hobby and non-profit online groups. Learn more about the project at getyoursidekick.org and join the ongoing development at Botmakers.org.

Detective

Detective

Detective is an online game where players are assigned roles of a Detective or an Impostor. A third role, Robot, is handled by a chat bot (powered by BOT libre!).

The Detective has to correctly identify the Impostor, whose goal is to convince the Detective they are speaking to the Robot.

Play the game, read more about the game on Stefan's blog, or join the development.
