In this chapter, we will create a chatbot application, using Node-RED. For the chatbot application UI, we'll use Slack, and we'll use IBM Watson AI for skills. After completing the tutorials in this chapter, you will learn how to combine Node-RED with an external API to create an application. This will help you create extensible web applications with Node-RED in the future.
Let's get started with the following topics:
- Creating a Slack workspace
- Creating a Watson Assistant API
- Enabling a connection to Slack from Node-RED
- Building a chatbot application
By the end of this chapter, you will have mastered how to make a Slack chatbot application with Node-RED.
