What are the best tools for prototyping chatbots?

I'm looking to put together high-level mockups or concepts of a chatbot for easy testing. Don't want to get tangled in any technical stuff for now.

    Typeform Chat

    Convert your typeforms into Facebook Messenger conversations

    Ryan Hoover78Founder, Product Hunt · Written
    It depends on how complicated you want to get but you can hack a chatbot experience using Typeform, which supports multiple input types (text, multiple choice, yes/no) and "jump to" logic. They recently launched a tool to export forms to Facebook Messenger, which might be all you need without touching a line of code.

    Turn a landing page into a chatbot

    Ernesto CohnenCo-Founder, · Written
    With just a couple of clicks you can create a landing page in the form of a bot. It's great to develop and test bots without coding. For us this approach was working like a charm to capture more leads on mkt landing pages. And they have a great support team also. I think you can plug the created not to other distribution channels like Facebook messenger, but I don't remember if that was still a beta feature.

    I second Chatfuel. I've used it on two chatbot products now. You can do live demos and tests using Chatfuel before you make the bot live to the world.

    IMO Chatfuel is so easy to make prototypes that you may not need to do mockups :)
