Quick start

  1. You need to create an Wit instance first.

  2. Install Node.JS on your computer.

  3. Setup your project

    Create a new Node.JS app :

    $ mkdir myapp
    $ cd myapp
    $ npm init
    ...
    

    Install and add node-wit as a dependencies in your package.json :

    npm install --save node-wit
    

    Execute

    npm install
    in your current folder to fetch the dependencies

    We will send an audio file to Wit.AI

    You can use SoX to record WAV files from the command line.

    brew install sox
    on OSX and
    apt-get install sox
    on ubuntu. The following options will create a Wit-ready WAV file (press Ctrl+C to stop recording):
    sox -d -b 16 -c 1 -r 16k sample.wav
    

    Create a

    index.js
    file in myapp directory containing:
    var wit = require('node-wit');
    var fs = require('fs');
    var ACCESS_TOKEN = "IQ77NWUPUMNBYEUEKRTWU3VDR5YSLHTA";
    
    

    console.log("Sending text & audio to Wit.AI");

    wit.captureTextIntent(ACCESS_TOKEN, "Hello world", function (err, res) { console.log("Response from Wit for text input: "); if (err) console.log("Error: ", err); console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, " ")); });

    var stream = fs.createReadStream('sample.wav'); wit.captureSpeechIntent(ACCESS_TOKEN, stream, "audio/wav", function (err, res) { console.log("Response from Wit for audio stream: "); if (err) console.log("Error: ", err); console.log(JSON.stringify(res, null, " ")); });

  4. Start your app

$ node index.js
Sending text & audio to Wit.AI
Response from Wit for text input:
{
 "msg_id": "b46d4a08-1e2e-43f4-b30a-aaa7bccb88e3",
 "_text": "Hello world",
 "outcomes": [
  {
   "_text": "Hello world",
   "intent": "greetings_hi",
   "entities": {},
   "confidence": 0.929
  }
 ]
}
Response from Wit for audio stream:
{
 "msg_id": "83c14e47-13cb-4ad4-9f5e-723cd47016be",
 "_text": "what's the weather in New York",
 "outcomes": [
  {
   "_text": "what's the weather in New York",
   "intent": "weather",
   "entities": {
    "location": [
     {
      "suggested": true,
      "value": "New York"
     }
    ]
   },
   "confidence": 1
  }
 ]
}
