Slick is a modular and extendable slack client with a terminal based ui, while also aiming to be simple and intuitive. It has been designed to have an approachable default configuration but to be easily extended with lua.

- Modal - Slick borrows a text based, modal workflow from vi. Most functionality requires one keypress, or can be easily mapped to a key.
- Scriptable - Add new commands (ie,

- Batteries Included - Distributed as a static binary with no dependencies. Installation is simple. Slick is updated automatically on start.
- Not built on electron - Slick is terminal based. Reduce the number of bloated chrome vms running on your system.
