Install

Clone repo, cd to its directory and type npm install & npm start

Add api info for http://openweathermap.org/api and https://newsapi.org/account to config/index.js

Open Chrome and enter http://localhost:4567/

Say Hey Brain, Brain or Okay Brain followed by your query (i.e Hey Brain, What is the weather in Paris).

Adding Skills

Add a skill by creating a new folder with the name of your new skill and adding an index.js.

Add functions for _intent and {skill_name}_resp to that index, the latter contining the logic that will respond to a query. The {skill_name}_resp function must have a response type of String

In _intent add return {keywords:['key 1','key 2'], module:'{skill_name}'} where keywords are the phrases you wish the skill to respond to and {skill_name} is the name of your new skill.

Add module.exports = {intent:_intent, get: {skill_name}_resp}; to the end of your index.js

Add that new folder to the skills directory in the project.

And bang, Brain will automatically import and enable your new skill!

Docker

You can run this application via Docker. Prequisites are that you have docker installed and cloned this repository locally. Then execute the following command to create an docker image called p-brain and a container called p-brain.

docker build -t p-brain .
docker run --name=p-brain -v `pwd`:/home/app -v /home/app/node_modules -p4567:4567  p-brain npm start

After doing this you can stop the container by running docker stop p-brain. Starting it again is done by running docker start p-brain.
