Rocket.Chat Apps boilerplate Bot to replace Internal Hubot #10458
What is this?
Rocket.Chat Apps can provide a starting point for bespoke chat ops / messaging automation, to replace the current Internal Hubot.
Note the distinction between internal and external bots:
Why do it?
The internal Hubot is outdated, it’s utility for enterprises and teams is limited and its documentation and usability is a challenge blocking many users from making the most of it.
Rocket.Chat now has much better options for messaging automation from progress toward an app marketplace model and the recent updates towards an SDK for multiple bot platform/framework adapters.
Integrating custom processes into the core codebase and the generic “Rocket.Cat” bot identity is harder to maintain and can be confusing for users to interact with.

How can we help?
If this spec effects you and you’d like to help out, what we need at this stage is to understand the types of use cases currently implemented with the Internal Hubot, so we can provide useful templates and guides to migrate your Hubot scripts into Rocket.Chat apps.
