About this template

The WhatsApp Bot Builder app allows users to create a WhatsApp bot that responds to every message with "Hello World".

Introduction to the WhatsApp Bot Builder Template

Welcome to the WhatsApp Bot Builder template guide. This template allows you to create a simple WhatsApp bot that automatically responds to every message with "Hello World". This guide will walk you through the steps to get your WhatsApp bot up and running on the Lazy platform.

Getting Started

To begin using this template, click on "Start with this Template" on the Lazy platform. This will set up the template in your Lazy Builder interface, so you can start customizing and deploying your WhatsApp bot without worrying about code setup or environment configurations.

Test: Deploying the App

Once you have the template open in the Lazy Builder, you can proceed to test and deploy your app. Simply press the "Test" button. This will initiate the deployment process through the Lazy CLI. There is no need for user input at this stage, as the template does not require it.

Using the App

After pressing the "Test" button, Lazy will handle the deployment of your WhatsApp bot. Once the deployment is complete, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link. This link is where your WhatsApp bot will live and respond to messages.

To use your WhatsApp bot, you will need to configure your Twilio WhatsApp sandbox to send incoming messages to the server link provided by Lazy. Follow these steps to set up your Twilio sandbox:

  1. Go to the Twilio Console and find the WhatsApp sandbox.
  2. Configure the sandbox to send webhooks to the server link provided by Lazy.
  3. Test the integration by sending a message to your Twilio WhatsApp number.

You should receive a "Hello World" message in response, indicating that your WhatsApp bot is functioning correctly.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this WhatsApp bot into an existing service or frontend, you will need to use the server link provided by Lazy as the endpoint for incoming WhatsApp messages. Ensure that any external tool you are integrating with is configured to interact with this server link.

For example, if you are using a CRM tool that supports webhook integrations, you would add the server link as a new webhook endpoint within the CRM settings. This will allow the CRM to receive messages from your WhatsApp bot.

Remember, this template is a starting point. You can customize the message response or add additional functionality by modifying the code within the Lazy Builder interface.

That's it! You now have a working WhatsApp bot that greets users with "Hello World". Enjoy building and customizing your bot to suit your needs.
