Installing dependencies

The MySQL development libraries must be previously installed before running the following command.
bundle install

Configure the database

Open the file config/database.yml and configure your database.
adapter: mysql2
pool: 5
username: your_user_name
password: your_password
host: localhost
database: your_database_name
encoding: utf8mb4
collation: utf8mb4_unicode_ci

Create framework's tables in database

kogno install
If the database is correctly configured you will see this output:
Creating tables..
users
kogno_sequences
kogno_chat_logs
kogno_scheduled_messages
kogno_matched_messages
kogno_telegram_chat_groups
kogno_long_payloads
kogno_messenger_recurring_notifications
Now, you can configure:
config/application.rb
Also some or all these platforms:
config/platforms/messenger.rb
config/platforms/telegram.rb
config/platforms/whatsapp.rb
config/nlp.rb

Testing in console

The console command lets you interact with your Kogno application from the command line.
To initialize it:
kogno console
Once the console has been opened, any class, instance or function declared in the project can be called.
