Note: This is the ARI fork of kennysong/SwiftEliza. Upstream doesn't seem to incorporate PRs.
SwiftEliza is a Swift + iOS implementation of Weizenbaum's ELIZA chatbot, which is a simulation of a Rogerian psychotherapist.
To run, just open the
SwiftEliza.xcodeproj in XCode.
The functionality of ELIZA is contained in the
Eliza.swift file, and the rest are boilerplate for the iOS app.
Written in Swift 3 for iOS 10 and above.
Swift Package Manager
You can import Eliza as a regular Swift Package Manager package. To do so,
Package.swift like this:
// swift-tools-version:5.0 import PackageDescription let package = Package( name: "MyEliza", dependencies: [ .package(url: "https://github.com/kennysong/SwiftEliza.git", from: "1.0.0") ], targets: [ .target(name: "MyEliza", dependencies: [ "Eliza" ]) ] )
The API consists of just three functions:
elizaHi() -> String
elizaBye() -> String
replyTo(_: String) -> String
let eliza = Eliza() print(eliza.elizaHi()) print(eliza.replyTo("Hi Eliza, I'm feeling super-bad today!")) print(eliza.elizaBye())
It is recommended that you add proper delays when responding to interactive questions. See the iOS app or the therapist tool for an example.
