An SDK to Integrate DialogFlow With Golang for Bot Development

DialogFlow, a natural language processing service, offers many SDKs in different programming languages — but not Golang. Until now...

Learn how integrating security into DevOps to deliver "DevSecOps" requires changing mindsets, processes and technology.

DialogFlow (formerly API.AI) gives users new ways to interact with your bot by building engaging voice- and text-based conversational interfaces powered by AI.

DialogFlow offers many SDKs in different programming languages:

But unfortunately, there’s no SDK for Golang.

But don't be sad! I made an SDK to integrate DialogFlow with Golang:

This library allows integrating agents from the DialogFlow natural language processing service with your Golang application.

Issue the following command to install the library:

go get github.com/mlabouardy/dialogflow-go-client

The example below, display list of entities:

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "github.com/mlabouardy/dialogflow-go-client"
    "github.com/mlabouardy/dialogflow-go-client/models"
    "log"
)

func main() {
    err, client: = NewDialogFlowClient(Options {
        AccessToken: "<DIALOGFLOW TOKEN GOES HERE>",
    })
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    entities, err: = client.EntitiesFindAllRequest()
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    for _, entity: = range entities {
        fmt.Println(entity.Name)
    }
}

Note: For more details about the available methods, check the project's GitHub repository.
