Before You Start
When using the interface to create a bot, Stackchat is translating your changes into CDML (Conversational Design Markup Language), a human-parsable language. Your bots' CDML can be viewed and edited at any time using the Edit CDML link in the Bot Builder.
In our documentation, CDML examples will be provided along with each piece of GUI function. By learning some CDML's basic structure and taxonomy, you can better understand exactly how your bots work and make changes to them more efficiently.
For most Stackchat functionality, CDML is not required. At this time, there are some functions that are CDML only, so it may be necessary to use them before they are integrated into the Bot Builder.
