Growth of the bot market makes developers wonder which languages are the most suitable for chatbots building. With this article, we suggest you  an overview of the five best programming languages to develop your chatbot.

CSML

CSML is a DSL (domain specific language) built in Rust, specialised in chatbots development. It's a language that allows you to create chatbots more easily and quickly than languages that weren't originally designed for this purpose. This language is made to simplify chatbot building and be accessible whether you are a novice or an expert in programming.

Advantages

  • open source
  • simple and expressive syntax
  • speed
  • specific to chatbot building
  • several integrations, templates, APIs
  • interoperability with other programming languages
  • scalable (many features)
  • accessible on any channel of your choice. usable in a free online development environment

Javascript

JavaScript is a prototype-based scripting language used in interactive web pages (allowing interaction with the user). Thanks to its various features, it is now considered as one of the best and most popular programming languages

Advantages:

  • popularity
  • speed
  • simplicity
  • rich interfaces
  • compatibility with all digital media
  • UX awareness

Python

Like JavaScript, Python is one of the most popular languages today. It is a general-purpose programming language which makes it very accessible for any type of project. It is very often used when carrying out machine learning or data science projects.

Advantages:

  • popularity
  • integrable and extensible
  • open source
  • extensive library
  • easy syntax
  • automation

Ruby

Ruby is a versatile programming language quite similar to Python in its syntax. It is possible to build chatbots in this language using its full stack framework Ruby on Rails. You can do many projects with Ruby ranging from web apps, prototyping or even data analysis and bot building.

Advantages:

  • open source
  • readable code
  • easy to test code (MiniTest integration in the library)
  • flexible and intuitive language
  • data protection

Clojure

A little less known than the options mentioned earlier in this article, Clojure is a compiled functional programming language. It is a dialect of LISP that allows access to various Java frameworks. Clojure has been developed with a "Code by data" approach.

Advantages:

  • open source
  • collaborative
  • multi-compatibility
  • several integrations and API's

There are many other programming languages to create your chatbots. The key is to find the most suitable language according to the needs and specificities of your chatbot project.
