TimeLord is a lightweight Sinatra app that provides Slack. Once setup, you can type
#e,#p,#m,or #c in your Slack channel and TimeLord will post the time in various time zones.

$ bundle install $ export SLACK_TOKEN=... $ foreman start
$ heroku create $ heroku config:set SLACK_TOKEN=... $ git push heroku master
