Cards and ButtonsΒΆ

Webex Teams supports AdaptiveCards to allow new levels of interactivity for bots and integrations. You can read more about how cards and buttons work in the official guide.

In this guide I want to cover the abstraction build into the webexteamssdk that lets you author adaptive cards in pure python without having to touch the underlying json of a adaptive card.

Lets dive into a simple example that sends a card to a room

from webexteamssdk import WebexTeamsAPI
from webexteamssdk.cards.card import AdaptiveCard
from webexteamssdk.cards.inputs import Text, Number
from webexteamssdk.cards.components import TextBlock
from webexteamssdk.cards.actions import Submit

greeting = TextBlock("Hey hello there! I am a adaptive card")
first_name = Text('first_name', placeholder="First Name")
age = Number('age', placeholder="Age")

submit = Submit(title="Send me!")

card = AdaptiveCard(body=[greeting, first_name, age], actions=[submit])

api = WebexTeamsAPI()
api.messages.create(text="fallback", roomId="...", cards=card)

The message we send with this code then looks like this in our Webex Teams client:
