Overview

A simple starting point for creating a Beep Boop hostable, Ruby based Slack bot.

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

bundle install
SLACK_TOKEN=<YOUR SLACK TOKEN> ruby ./bot.rb

Things are looking good if the console prints something like:

Connected <your bot name> to <your slack team> team at https://<your slack team>.slack.com.

Run locally in Docker

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

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.
