Hi @prathhi, welcome aboard!

Just a question: the downloadable version of Botpress don’t fit in you needs? You can integrate BP with a lot of systems using NodeJS as middlewares, sometimes inside BP.

And I’m curious about why to replace BP Studio for Rasa UI, the Studio is pretty good and have a lot of features that make easy to make complex dialog flows.

Once again, welcome!

Hi @LuizCesarLeite,

Thanks for your quick reply.

I am looking to build a bot with NLP & AI with .Net stack background. I heard Scisharp does the job.
Scisharp - A .NET based Open Source Ecosystem for Data Science, Machine Learning and AI.

when I wish to setup BOTSharp, it gave instructions to setup botpress. I cam upto here.

Please guide me to setup botsharp. I would like to build UI by own with the NLP chatbot as my back ground.

BotSharp Setup Manual path- https://botsharp.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installation.html

@prathhi

Look at the Botsharp docs that you pointed, I think that BotSharp and Articulate UI is your best choice.

But if you really want give a try with BP, I would recomend using the docker image instead of building
BP from the source code.

As I wrote to you, I’m not a developer I’m just a curious, so let’s wait for the BP team.

And thanks for another piece of knowledge :slight_smile:

Hi @prathhi, Thanks for joining the community. I am curious to understand how Botpress fits into your stack and why did you choose to plug different tools together? I think there might be something to learn from your use case.

As @LuizCesarLeite said, if you want to try Botpress you should use the docker image or simply download the binary from our website. It will make your life easier. :slight_smile: Looking forward to hearing your answer!

Cheers,
Marc
