Welcome Symphony Developer!

Let's change the way we work

The Symphony Platform provides many ways of integrating with your systems and driving business processes. Learn to use Symphony's offerings by first defining where your journey as a Symphony developer begins. Whether it's a simple command-response bot, a workflow-driving bot, or embedding Symphony chat within your web portal, this guide should get you started and developing production-ready solutions.

Speaking your language

Getting started with development on the Symphony Platform should take no more than a minute. With this in mind, Symphony provides API Clients in the following languages:

  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • .NET

Quick Look into the Toolbox

const Symphony = require('symphony-api-client-node');

const botHearsSomething = ( event, messages ) => {
    messages.forEach( (message, index) => {
      console.log( 'The BOT heard "' + message.messageText +'" from ' + message.initiator.user.displayName );

Symphony.initBot(__dirname + '/config.json')
  .then( (symAuth) => {
    Symphony.getDatafeedEventsService( botHearsSomething );
public class BotExample {

    public static void main(String [] args) {
        BotExample app = new BotExample();
    public BotExample() {
        URL url = getClass().getResource("config.json");
        SymConfigLoader configLoader = new SymConfigLoader();
        SymConfig config = configLoader.loadFromFile(url.getPath());
        SymBotAuth botAuth = new SymBotAuth(config);
        SymBotClient botClient = SymBotClient.initBot(config, botAuth);
        DatafeedEventsService datafeedEventsService = botClient.getDatafeedEventsService();
        RoomListener roomListenerTest = new RoomListenerTestImpl(botClient);
        IMListener imListener = new IMListenerImpl(botClient);

public void ChatBotTest()
            SymBotClient symBotClient = new SymBotClient();
            DatafeedEventsService datafeedEventsService = new DatafeedEventsService();
            SymConfig symConfig = symBotClient.initBot("PATH");
            RoomListener botLogic = new BotLogic();
            DatafeedClient datafeedClient = datafeedEventsService.init(symConfig);
            Datafeed datafeed = datafeedEventsService.createDatafeed(symConfig, datafeedClient);
            datafeedEventsService.getEventsFromDatafeed(symConfig, datafeed, datafeedClient);
