This one is a bit advanced video, and helps people who are having trouble while doing the API Integration with the TARS chabot. Here I explain how you can use the Developer tools in the Google chrome browser, to check what is happening behind the scenes of any webpage. Chabot in this specific case.

Adding Images/Gifs in your Chatbot with TARS Bot Builder


#23

Very helpful trick, thank you! When the memes loaded, it made me think of another issue. Is there a way we can set the container for the image slot on the card function? You’ll notice that the images were displayed at different heights. I’ve experienced this issue when using the card feature as well. I know with a little resizing in PS we should be able to make the images consistent, but in this case where you are making a call, you can’t control the size of images that will populate the cards. For now a fixed pic height would be nice. In the future, the options to adjust these settings within the bot would be even better. Nice mic btw

Hey @Levi,

Thanks for checking the video :slight_smile:

For the images in cards, fitting the images of different sizes and aspect ratio, without streching them and messing up the aspect ratio is tricky and different people will have different preferences for how the image should look like.

I definitely think that more work can be done to make the design of cards and even other inputUI better.
We will be working on this to improve it further.

I am really curious how you have managed, in DeCaprio bot, to have those Project Cards showing only the unclicked ones : after clicking on one of them, only the remainder 2 then 1, that were not clicked!

@vinit I would love a tutorial on overwriting existing data in a Google Sheet as a continuation of the tutorial on posting then fetching data found here…


#33

Hey @Levi,

I will soon make a few videos around integratation with Google Sheets.
The one for the fetch can also be explained in a video, and one for write to the sheet.

This week is a bit busy, will try to do it in the weekend.

Image Cards Input in Chatbots with TARS Bot Builder


#36

I think I figured it out, but I can’t test because I’m still taking the free-ride approach with Zapier and it’s a three-part Zap requiring a paid account. I’ll upgrade here shortly then run a test. If it works (and you haven’t done it already) I’ll whip up a little video of the process and post it.

Can we get a video tutorial that covers XML in an API call? I’m stuck in a position that I need to make an API call and use XML, but I don’t have much of a starting point so I can start moving through it with good old trial and error lol


#39

Hi @Levi,

The way to do this is by using an API which converts XML to JSON.

So basically making another API call which will take the input from the response of the previous API call (with XML response) and send it to this API which will return the JSON format data for that XML data.

I was looking for a good XMLtoJSON API, but couldn’t find anything. So I created it myself here:
https://aspiring-yacht.glitch.me/xmltojson

Check this screenshot to see how to use it:

Just reference the XML using {{pre.gambit_name_with_xml_response}} in the raw data section, with XML selected from dropdown menu.

Hope this is helpful.
I will try to make a video tutorial for this as well.

I love how you just nonchalantly write, “I was looking for a good XMLtoJSON API, but couldn’t find anything. So I created it myself,” hahaha! I’m going to give this a try. Once I format it, this will be my first time really using data iterations and I believe they will need to by multilayered, so this will take some time for me to figure out for sure. But JSON will make it easier to digest. Thanks!
