Dasha platform

Dasha is a Conversational AI for developers. Below you'll find a guide that will teach you how to use Dasha, and reference documentation for all the moving parts.


TL;DR: setup and call yourself

  1. Set environment variable DASHA_APIKEY (or create a file .env that contains DASHA_APIKEY=<your_apikey>). To receive your Dasha API key, enroll into our beta program.
  2. Download and run a simple conversational IVR example for a postal service:
git clone https://github.com/dasha-samples/dasha-first-app; cd dasha-first-app npm i npm start <phone_number>

(phone_number is your phone number in international format without +, for instance 12223334455).

You will receive a test call. Ask Dasha to help you track your parcel or something related to a postal service.

Install Dasha Studio for VSCode (optional):

code --install-extension dasha-ai.dashastudio code .
