Description

Used to listen to events in Webex Teams on a localhost port. The only command it can understand is hello, replies "hello there".

Requirements

  • Webex Teams access token: this will be used to communicate with Webex Teams. Ideally you would use the access token of the same bot here.
  • open port on localhost: this is where the app will listen for incoming messages
  • Java 1.8
  • Maven 3.6.1

Installation

  • clone the repo
  • mvn install
  • mvn exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=Main

Tip: you can use the hookbuster to test how this app works. Start a websocket listener for messages:created and the hookbuster will forward incoming message events to localhost, where javabot can listen to them. No need for webhooks!
