A fun hack that gets Slackbot to force your teammates to work out!
Clone the repo and navigate into the directory in your terminal.
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:brandonshin/slackbot-workout.git
In the Slack API Page, register yourself an auth token for your team. You should see this. Take note of the token, e.g.
xoxp-2751727432-4028172038-5281317294-3c46b1. This is your SLACK_USER_TOKEN_STRING
In the Slackbot Remote control Page. Register an integration by clicking Add Configuration & then you should see this. Make sure you grab just the token out of the url, e.g.
AizJbQ24l38ai4DlQD9yFELb. This is your SLACK_URL_TOKEN_STRING
Save your SLACK_USER_TOKEN_STRING and SLACK_URL_TOKEN_STRING as environmental variables in your terminal.
$ export SLACK_USER_TOKEN_STRING=YOURUSERTOKEN
$ export SLACK_URL_TOKEN_STRING=YOURURLTOKEN
If you need help with this, try adapting the first 5 steps of the guide to edit your .bash_profile
Set up channel and customize configurations
channelName(ex: general) and
channelId(ex: B22D35YMS). Save the file as
config.jsonin the same directory. Set any other configurations as you like.
If you don't know the channel Id, fetch it using
$ python fetchChannelId.py channelname
If you haven't set up pip for python, go in your terminal and run.
$ sudo easy_install pip
While in the project directory, run
$ sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python slackbotExercise.py
Run the script to start the workouts and hit ctrl+c to stop the script. Hope you have fun with it!
