A facebook messenger bot inspired by the Dude (The Big Lebowski)


I developed Bot Dude mainly for fun. Moreover, anyone can contribute to this project by suggesting more fun features that can be added or by sending a PR 😄
You can take a look at the contributing guidelines for any help required.
A lot of help was taken from Swapnil’s project JARVIS.
