Usage

Deploy to Heroku

With the Party Parrot (:partyparrot:)

Just pass the script a string of your choosing.

python partyparrot.py "HELLO" | pbcopy

Custom Emoji List

Use the -e or --emojis flag to use a custom list of emojis.

python partyparrot.py "something stupid" -e ":emoji1:" ":emoji2:" ":emoji3:" ":emoji4:" | pbcopy

Auto-Post to Slack

Use the -f or --force flag to auto-post to your favorite Slack channel (configure URL in the "Incoming Webhooks" section of the "Integrations" page).

SHITPOSTING_ENDPOINT="<YOUR_SLACK_INCOMING_WEBHOOK_URL>" python partyparrot.py "something stupid" -f

As a Slash Command /partyparrot

Now that slack supports posting to the channel in response to a slash command, providing the party parrot as one makes a lot of sense. Simply deploy this app to your favorite Procfile-compatible hosting provider (heroku and dokku come to mind) and configure the Custom Slash Command Integration in your slack channel. The app allows for the optional ENV var SLACK_TEAM_TOKEN to restrict access to a specific team.
