Jovo Starter: Chat Widget (Vue2), NLU (Snips), Docker

A chatbot built with Vue.js, Jovo and Snips NLU, deployed with Docker

This sample repository allows you to run a chatbot built with Jovo, Vue.js, and Snips NLU with a single command using Docker.

The project contains:

  • app: A conversational backend built with the Jovo Framework
  • chatwidget: A Vue.js chat widget (based on the Jovo Web Client) that interacts with the conversational backend
  • snips-nlu-server: An open source natural language understanding (NLU) service that turns raw text into structured input. You can also find the module here:

Getting Started

Use the following commands to clone the repository (make sure to add --recurse-submodules to download the submodule) and run it using Docker:

# Clone this repository and download snips-nlu-server submodule from
$ git clone --recurse-submodules
$ cd jovo-starter-chatwidget-nlu-docker

# Start Docker container
$ docker-compose up

You can then access the chat widget at localhost:8080:

If you make changes to the widget that don’t show up immediately, you can stop the Docker service and start it again. Make sure to add the --build flag to rebuild the images:

# Rebuild and start Docker container
$ docker-compose up --build
