InterviewJS is an open-source tool that takes journalists through the process of building a chat story: creating interviewee profiles and composing interactive messaging exchanges combining text, videos, maps, audio, charts or any other type of embeddable content.
The result: mobile-friendly stories in the form of a web app where users engage with interviewees seemingly directly. These chat stories can be shared on social media or embedded on your website.
This is the beta version of InterviewJS. It was funded by the Digital News Innovation Fund and developed by Al Jazeera.
