How to create projects and responses:
1. Head to platform.jargon.com, the editing interface for projects.
2. After creating an account, at the top left of the screen is a plus sign to “Create Project”.
3. A few things to keep in mind when creating a new project:
- The project can be any assortment of three platforms: Alexa, Google, and Rasa. If Rasa is chosen, you may choose to import your domain.yml file(s) if you have an existing Rasa application.
- Locales are language and country pairings. Locale support differs depending on the platform chosen. You will need at least one locale to set up a project. Learn more about how locales assist in creating multilingual content here.
- Team members can be invited and given access via their emails. Team members may be an admin, allowing for editing, or a read-only role, allowing only for review.
- Note that anything added in these steps can be altered later in the settings so don’t worry about getting everything perfect to start.
4. Once you’ve created a project, you will land in the project details tab, which gives a high level overview of the project. The navigation tabs at the top of your project are as follows.
- The studio tab is where you can manage and refine the contents of your project.
- Releases is where the content of the project can be deployed and connected to a live version of your app.
- The media assets tab allows you to manage images, audio clips, or videos that can be inserted into your app responses [note that these must be connected to an online directory].
- The settings cog allows you to edit the project and team structure.
- You can switch between locales at the top left on the white header.
5. To create a new response in the studio, click the “+” sign to the right of Responses on the left navigation bar. You will be prompted to fill out details for the response, including a name, description, and the components included. Once the response has been created, you will see a summary of the response along with the application label that is in your application to call the response. Learn more about the various components within a response here.
