Using the Symphony Bot Generator

The Symphony bot generator is a yeoman generator that can generate bot projects in various languages as a starting point for development. To use the Symphony bot generator, you'll first need to download and install NodeJS.

Once NodeJS (that includes npm) is installed, execute the following command to install the Yeoman Generator and the Symphony Bot Generator.

npm i -g yo generator-symphony

Once the generators are installed, the yo command line will be available for use globally in your command shell and you can create a new bot project by typing yo symphony.

yo symphony

The Symphony bot generator displays a series of questions allowing you to specify how the bot client is generated. The following shows example screen output when generating a project using our Java SDK.
