Botonic Settings

Typing Options

index.js is the main file where all the stuff is exported for Botonic to make it work. Additionally, you can specify within a config object a global value which will be applied to all the messages processed by the bot.


export { routes } from './routes'
export { locales } from './locales'
export { plugins } from './plugins'
export { webchat } from './webchat'
export { webviews } from './webviews'
export const config = { defaultDelay: 1, defaultTyping: 1 }
  • defaultTyping: Specifies how many seconds the typing component has to be displayed.
  • defaultDelay: Specifies the seconds that pass before sending the order to process the user input.

Both options are set to 0 by default. Feel free to tune these parameters to obtain the expected behavior of your bot.

You can also define these settings inside your messages. In this case, the values defined within a message will have preference over the global settings.

import React from 'react'
import { Text } from '@botonic/react'
export default class extends React.Component {
render() {
return (
<Text delay='2'>Hi!</Text>
<Text typing='1'>How are you?</Text>
<Text delay='1' typing='1'>
I am very glad to see you again.
