Thanks for hunting us @chrismessina 👊 Team Sure and Bottr are excited to share our latest creation - A micro chatbot-framework to easily handle the logic of your bot or IoT-app. While developing Sure bot, we discovered how hard it can become to handle and change the logic of complex chatbots. Eventline uses a simple "If This Then That"-approach providing developers with a clear overview of their logic. Earlier bot frameworks take an all-or-nothing approach where you’re tight to particular clients. With Eventline, you can still use other frameworks or even combine several different libraries. You can read more about Eventline here: https://blog.surebot.io/introduc... We would love to hear all your feedback and will be here answering all your questions today 💬💪

@krumhausen @jcampbell_05 Nice work. I'm looking forward to trying this and I like the idea of extending Redux state principle.

This looks like a great tool for working with and constructing bots and bot-like applications! I'm curious how existing bots could be retrofitted to take advantage of this framework...?

@chrismessina so for Surebot we did exactly this. Most of the existing code for receiving events from facebook was kept. We started off by just having one massive listening function with the millions of if statements we had before. Then we gradually broke it down into smaller components to match the convention of the framework. It was fairly straightforward as we could re-use a lot of the existing APIs as before, Eventline focuses more on the flow of the bot.

@natalie_korotaeva It took a couple of days to build the core framework in terms of developer hours. But we've been testing and refining it in the bot for the past month :) it's already in production so battle tested too !
