Chat SDK

We recommend using our official Chat SDK to set up communication with API channels from within a web frontend. This contains:

  • A vanilla JavaScript function for connecting to a bot, maintaining a conversation, and subscribing to new messages

  • Our React hook to operate inside a React app without providing styling

  • A fully-styled, chat widget that is customizable to fit your style guide
