starter-node-bot

Overview

A simple starting point for creating a Beep Boop hostable, Node.js based Slack bot with botkit

Visit Beep Boop to get the scoop on the the Beep Boop hosting platform. The Slack API documentation can be found here.

Assumptions

  • You have already signed up with Beep Boop and have a local fork of this project.
  • You have sufficient rights in your Slack team to configure a bot and generate/access a Slack API token.

Usage

Run locally

npm install
SLACK_TOKEN=<YOUR_SLACK_TOKEN> npm start

Things are looking good if the console prints something like:

** API CALL: https://slack.com/api/rtm.start
** BOT ID:  witty  ...attempting to connect to RTM!
** API CALL: https://slack.com/api/chat.postMessage

Run locally in Docker

docker build -t starter-node .`
docker run --rm -it -e SLACK_TOKEN=<YOUR SLACK API TOKEN> starter-node

Run in BeepBoop

If you have linked your local repo with the Beep Boop service (check here), changes pushed to the remote master branch will automatically deploy.

Acknowledgements

This code uses the botkit npm module by the fine folks at Howdy.ai.
