Relationship between skills

Parent-Child

Let's say two skills have the same trigger

@Intent(/hello/i)
hello() {
    > Hey
}

If the user says "hello", only the child skill will be triggered. The parent skill has been "overloaded" by the child's skill

Event "nothing"

Here are two codes

parent.converse

@Intent(/hello/i)
hello() {
    > Hey
}

@Event('nothing')
nothing() {
    > What ?
}

child.converse

@Intent(/bye/i)
bye() {
    > Bye
}

If the user says "bye", the chatbot responds "Bye" with the child skill.

Even if no function is triggered in the parent skill, the nothing event is not executed because a child skill has been triggered

If the user says "good", the chatbot responds "What?" Because no child and parent skills function has been triggered.

Sisters

Two sister skills (ie having the same parent)

import oneSkill from './skills/one-skill/one-skill'
import secondSkill from './skills/second-skill/second-skill'

export default {
    skills: {
        oneSkill,
        secondSkill
    }
}

If both skills have the same trigger:

@Intent(/hello/i)
hello() {
    > Hey
}

Both will be triggered at the same time

In the same skill

If the skill has this code:

@Intent(/hello/i)
helloWorld() {
    > Hey Boy
}

@Intent(/hello (world)?/i)
hello() {
    > Hey World
}

If the user says "hello", both intentions are concerned but only the first one written (the function helloWorld()) will be triggered

If the user says "hello world", only the second intention (the function undefined) is concerned and will be triggered
