Message.io vs Microsoft Bot Framework: What are the differences?
Developers describe Message.io as "Bots that work everywhere". Expand your bot’s reach from a single deployment to a cross-platform giant with a single click using our revolutionary translation technology. Build it once and we customize it to work across platforms, giving you a single source to deploy, support and update. On the other hand, Microsoft Bot Framework is detailed as "Connect intelligent bots that interact via text/sms, Skype, Slack, Office 365 mail and other popular services". The Microsoft Bot Framework provides just what you need to build and connect intelligent bots that interact naturally wherever your users are talking, from text/sms to Skype, Slack, Office 365 mail and other popular services.
Message.io and Microsoft Bot Framework can be primarily classified as "Chatbot Platforms &" tools.
Microsoft Bot Framework is an open source tool with 5.7K GitHub stars and 2.2K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Microsoft Bot Framework's open source repository on GitHub.
