ChatterBot has direct support for integration with Django’s ORM. It is relatively easy to use ChatterBot within your Django application to create conversational pages and endpoints.
Begin by making sure that you have installed both
pip install django chatterbot
For more details on installing Django, see the Django documentation.
chatterbot.ext.django_chatterbot to your
INSTALLED_APPS in the
settings.py file of your Django project.
INSTALLED_APPS = ( # ... 'chatterbot.ext.django_chatterbot', )
You can run the Django database migrations for your chat bot with the following command.
python manage.py migrate django_chatterbot
MongoDB and Django¶
ChatterBot has a storage adapter for MongoDB but it does not work with Django. If you want to use MongoDB as your database for Django and your chat bot then you will need to install a Django storage backend such as Django MongoDB Engine.
The reason this is required is because Django’s storage backends are different and completely separate from ChatterBot’s storage adapters.
