Once you have the widget you have to paste it in a js file, and add a config to Ravada.

Create a JS widget

Copy your code in the file: /usr/share/ravada/public/js/custom/chatwoot_widget.js. Do not copy the <script> tags, only the javascript code. Set your chatwoot server at the second line.

 2        var BASE_URL = "";
 3              var g=d.createElement(t),s=d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0];
 4              g.src= BASE_URL + "/packs/js/sdk.js";
 5              s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
 6              g.onload=function(){
 7                window.chatwootSettings = {
 8                  locale: 'ca',
 9                  type: 'expanded_bubble',
10                   launcherTitle: 'Some message',
11                   showPopoutButton: true
12                 }
13       {
14                   websiteToken: 'xxxxxxxxx4Yh7RkXPtt1',
15                   baseUrl: BASE_URL
16                 })
