We created Easybots to make it easy for the developers to create Personal Software Solutions.
Personal Software Solution is an automated task, or a software solution that solves specific problem to a person.
It can be anything you want to automate, and we wanted the developers to be able to do it in matter of minutes, not hours.
Some examples of what you can do in couple of minutes:
You install Easybots on your PC by running our installer. The installer will install both the:
Currently, the .NET languages (C#, VB) are supported for writing new apps and bots, but we are working on supporting Java and Python.
Bots can be shared through our App Stores.
The bots are created in .NET Applications (apps). The app is then uploaded through the Easybots Studio, simply by zipping all the assemblies and uploading that zip file to our servers.
If you don't want to share your app publicly, you can upload the app to your 'Private App Store'.
You will have the option to share your app to a specific person from there (free of charge or for a fee).
There are number of reasons we decided to host bots in an app, but mainly it is because it is easier for the developers:
Solutions are created with drag&drop of triggers and actions in the Easybots Studio.
From the App Explorer (left side), you drag bots' triggers and actions to create your flow, and drop them in the 'Editor'. Remember, the first node in the solution must be a trigger!
We wanted to provide an easy way for our users to control other bots from web.
'Web Bots' is your personal, customizable web page. You can customize this web page by adding buttons, image boxes, text boxes, labels, sliders, any many other components.
To get the commands from these components on your computer, you need to install the 'Web Bots App' on your PC, and that will allow you to receive triggers from the web bots, or invoke action on the web bots (for example: Image Box => Set Image)
With Web Bots, you have direct link between your PC and your website, anywhere, anytime.
You can hide the app by starting it in a non-UI session.
In the App Explorer in Easybots Studio, choose 'Manage App', set it to 'Start automatically', and then close the app. After couple of seconds, the app will be started, but it will not show the UI, nor you will see it in the taskbar. Even if you restart your PC, the app will start automatically, to make sure the bots you are using will continue working event after restarting the PC.
