Connect your App to Multiple Messaging Channels in a Single Integration with W3C Open standard.

โญ๏ธ Introduction โญ๏ธ

Broid Integrations is an open source project released by Broid that allows you to easily converse on all the major communication platforms (messaging & voice) without integrating each API.

It provides a suite of libraries to convert all messaging platforms events to Activity Streams 2 schemas.


  • All events are Observables (RxJS)
  • All functions return a Promise (Bluebird)
  • Highly modular to keep your focus on high level features

๐Ÿ’ช Motivation ๐Ÿ’ช

With billions of daily users Messaging๐Ÿ’ฌ is now the prefered channel of communication but there is a clear lack of open standard for the various APIs. Each one come with a specfic schema, docs, etc. We want to empower the community to built great things with messaging so we open-sourced our Premium API so that you can avoid the tedious work of integrating new channels and focus on your core product ๐Ÿ’ก.

๐Ÿ”Ž Quick Example ๐Ÿ”Ž

A quick example showing off listening for new messages on Facebook Messenger and Discord with Observables.

npm i --save @broid/messenger @broid/discord rxjs ramda
const Rx = require("rxjs/Rx");
const BroidDiscord = require("@broid/discord");
const BroidMessenger = require("@broid/messenger");

const clients = {
    discord: new BroidDiscord({token: 'DISCORD_TOKEN'}),
    messenger: new BroidMessenger({token: 'FACEBOOK_TOKEN', tokenSecret: 'FACEBOOK_SECRET'})

Rx.Observable.merge(...Object.values(clients).map(client => client.connect()))
        next: data => console.log(JSON.stringify(data, null, 2)),
        error: err => console.error(`Something went wrong: ${err.message}`),

Rx.Observable.merge(...Object.values(clients).map(client => client.listen()))
        next: message => console.log(JSON.stringify(message, null, 2)),
        error: err => console.error(`Something went wrong: ${err.message}`),
