Integrating with Alan

To integrate an Ember app with Alan:

  1. Install the @alan-ai/alan-sdk-web package:

    npm install @alan-ai/alan-sdk-web --save
  2. Install the ember-auto-import package to have an ability to use packages from npm:

    npm install ember-auto-import --save
  3. Add the following code to the app.js file in your project:

    Client app
      onCommand: (commandData) => {
        if (commandData.command === 'go:back') {
          // Call the client code that will react to the received command

For details, see Specifying the Alan button parameters.


Regularly update the @alan-ai/alan-sdk-web package your project depends on. To check if a newer version is available, run npm outdated. To update the alan package, run npm update @alan-ai/alan-sdk-web. For more details, see npm documentation.
