Useful (?) slash commands and miscellaneous integrations for Slack.
Setup instructions for the
/todo feature can be found here.
A simple todo list per conversation (channel/direct message/private group).
/todo command together with one of the supported operators to
manage the list. Operators are:
[empty]Displays the list to you.
showDisplays the list to everyone in the conversation.
add [text]Adds an item to the list. The item gets a numeric ID automatically.
tick [id]Marks an item as "done".
untick [id]Marks an item as "not done".
remove [id]Removes an item from the list.
trimRemoves all ticked (done) items.
clearRemoves all items.
helpDisplay usage information.
/todo add Update SlackCommander readme /todo add Get coffee /todo add Get to inbox zero /todo
/todo tick 1 /todo tick 3 /todo show
As stated above, each conversation gets its own list and everyone in the conversation is free to manage it. Use the Slackbot channel if you want a personal list, or create a private group with no other members (good for todo-per-topic).
Whois lookup for e-mail addresses or Twitter handles
/whois [e-mail address] /whois [Twitter handle]
Performs a lookup and sends a brief summary of who the person behind the e-mail address or Twitter handle is to the current channel. Requires a FullContact API key (the free tier currently includes 250 lookups per month).
SlackCommander responds to the current channel with something similar to this:
MailChimp webhook for new subscribers - automatically posts a notification to a preconfigured Slack channel about the new list signup + initiates a whois lookup (which is also posted to the channel when complete).
Send e-mail to Slack - set up a Mailgun route to forward incoming e-mail to any Slack channel.
Mailgun route details ===================== Filter expression: match_recipient("^(?P<slackChannel>[\w]+)\.(?P<webhookId>[\w]+)@yourdomain.net$") Action: forward("https://yourslackcommander.com/webhooks/mailgun/\g<webhookId>/\g<slackChannel>") (webhookId should be a hard-to-guess token to prevent spam etc.)
