Sinch has released a package of nodes for Node-RED, which integrates with Sinch Conversation API and enables you to send and receive messages on most popular messaging services around the world.
The nodes allow you to easily create chatbots, campaigns, auto-responses and much more.
The Sinch Messaging nodes consists of six nodes:
|Start Conversation node||Used to configure the channel and number/identity for the recipient of an outgoing message. Also used to set variables which will be stored in the Conversation API and available throughout the flow.|
|Received Message node||Used to receive inbound messages from Sinch Conversation API for a specific application.|
|Send node||Used to send a message or template using the Conversation API.|
|Message node||Used to configure a Conversation API message. The message is defined in JSON format.|
