Boost LINE Bot development productivity by using LINE Client Simulator App

kenakamu profile image Kenichiro Nakamura ・1 min read

In this article, I explain LINE Simulator for bot developer. It works okay, but it was a web application, which was not perfect for Mac or PC.

This time I moved the solution to Electron app so that it is native app on Mac and PC.

Install

Go to Release of my GitHub repo and download the app. For Mac, download the zip file and unzip it. For Windows, download setup.exe and run the installer.

How to use

It's super simple.

  1. Run the simulator once installed.

  2. Enter UserId, ChannelSecret, ChannelToken and Bot API Server Address. The application uses these information to talk to your bot service.

  3. Check "always on top" if you want the simulator runs on top of everything.

  4. Click Connect. (or POC if you want to do POC mode)

  5. Run your bot by specifying http://localhost:8080 as LINE Platform address so that your bot talks to the simulator rather than actual platform.

  6. Use it.

Need your feedback

This application is far from completion and need your feedback. Please play with it and let me know any issues or suggestions.
