The ActingWeb open-source project has several applications available, mostly free, or supported by optional contributions.
The longest running service was the Webex Teams ArmyKnife app. There are also several ActingWeb actors that can be accessed from e.g. the ArmyKnife or directly: A Box.com actor and a Google mail actor. The ArmyKnife has been deprecated.
Alexa Gregor Assistant Bot
The Gregor assistant bot can be opened by “Alexa, open Gregor bot”, and you can ask questions and get instructions on any topic (powered by AI) using the phrases “Question: …” or “Tell me…” or “Ask …”
The bot is in beta, access on request only.
The Flutter production-quality starter app does not use (today) the ActingWeb library, but is a standalone project suitable as a starter app for teams. For feature requests or issues, please use the Github project. For an introduction, there are a couple of blog posts: the initial intro and then the latest update in “take two“.
If you don’t want to build and test the starter app yourself, you can install it from Google Play store. Apple rejected the app with the following statement: “Your app includes content or features that users aren’t able to use in this version. Apps that are for demonstration purposes are not appropriate for the App Store.”
Cisco Webex Teams ArmyKnife
The Cisco Webex Teams ArmeKnife was a bot you could add to your Cisco Webex Teams service by sending a message to email@example.com. The bot has been deprecated. More information is available on its homepage.
The Box.com and Google mail actors were operated as part of the ArmyKnife (but are still available as standalone actors). They isolate the authorisation towards the external service and the data for each user and allows the ArmyKnife to interact with the services through the ActingWeb protocol, a protocol designed for privacy and granular control of usage of data. Both operate only on meta data about files and emails respectively, and no data is stored permanently, just cached to ensure no loss of information.
The privacy statement for all applications is available here.
