To initialize cleverbot, require the module, then create a new instance of cleverbot

var cleverbot = require(""),
bot = new cleverbot("YOUR_API_USER", "YOUR_API_KEY"); allows you to save cleverbot sessions to access later
If you've already created a session previously, simply add the following code to reference it


To create or access a cleverbot session, start with the following

bot.create(function (err, session) {
  // session is your session name, it will either be as you set it previously, or will generate one for you

  // Woo, you initialized  Insert further code here

Now querying cleverbot is simple, you pass the text to the .ask() method

bot.ask("Just a small town girl", function (err, response) {
    console.log(response); // Will likely be: "Living in a lonely world"

Well, that's it for now! Happy hacking!
