Getting started

 

Fire up a codepen app eg: https://codepen.io/xatcom/pen/pQOWyZ?editors=0010

mychat is the name of the chat where you want the appbot to run

 

myname is a xat registered user name (probably needs to be different from your main ID)

(In the future it may need the appbot power and days)

 

a2bb8a73336665ba5 is the apikey for "myname". you can get that at xat.com/login under Security settings

(Never share your api key, no one needs it. If you do you can change it at any time)

 

Press the "Run appbot on chat" button

 

Go to your group (mychat) and member your bot (MYBOT)

 

Make sure anyone who wants to play use the html5 version of your chat eg

 

xat.com/mychat?new

 

And then they run the Canvas app,

 

Click (in the chat, to the right of the smilie line):

Make your own game

 

Fire up a codepen app eg: https://codepen.io/xatcom/pen/pQOWyZ?editors=0010

 

Find this line

let sm = ['smile','biggrin','wink','eek','tongue','cool','mad','confused','redface','frown','crying','sleepy','rolleyes','d','vampire','pirate2'];

in the JS window

 

Change the name of the smilies to your fav xat smilies

 

You should see the new smilies appear in the debug games

(there may be a delay due to a bug in canvas)

 

Then run the game on your chat with the "Run appbot on chat" button

 

You can use the Screen Shot 2018-12-04 at 07.33.22.jpg button to save your work on codepen
