RiveScript

RiveScript is a chatbot scripting language I originally programmed in Perl around 2003 during a time when chatbots were popular (i.e. SmarterChild).

A second wave of chatbots has come and gone around 2016 and interest has been dropping off again. Most of the implementations of RiveScript are in "long term support" mode without actively gaining new features.
