As bots become an important part of how people are productive and have fun, bot analytics are becoming ever more important to the bot developer. What did my bot’s traffic look like? Who is using my bot? What channels are most popular?
For web pages, the tools for web analytics are well understood and used widely. In the bot space, the open source community is innovating on new analytics solutions for bot developers. One such project recently announced an integration with Bot Framework via the Bot Builder SDK for Node.js. Arun Thampi’s botmetrics integrates with BotBuilder using middleware. He did a great post on how you can get started – great to see exciting open source technologies being made available to Bot Framework developers.
Thanks and happy bot building!
