I’m compiling a list of Pandorabots displayed on a simple HTML page. If you have such a bot (the more basic the better) please list it here.
There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Pandorabots that consist of a text box on a blank white page.
My theory is that those who don’t know HTML are unaware of how easy it is to create a chatbot that is more attractive, interesting, and entertaining than what they begin with and how, with a little schooling, they can easily upgrade the appearance of their chatbot, causing it to attract more visitors.
The purpose of this exercise is to draw more novices into the chatbot world who view it from a distance as being cumbersome, and something accessible only to people with advanced computer science degrees.
Below are some examples of the kind of very basic HTML-based Pandorabots that I believe are easy to create and within reach of anyone who wants something better than a text box on a plain white page.
The following page is an advanced Pandorabot, and not the work of a beginner. However, I think it’s a good example of the sort of thing that is possible, and what one might aspire to when starting with a basic HTML bot.
