Slack Draw - Chrome Extension

A Google Chrome extension to draw on Slack and share the drawings with the team.

Demo

Check this short video to see how it works!

The initial idea was to work just as a proof-of-concept about generating a bitmap from a canvas element and sharing across the network. Check section "TODO" to see what cool things we can do to improve this extension even more!

Installation

  1. Save the CRX to computer: https://github.com/caiosba/slackdraw/raw/master/extension/slackdraw.js.crx

  2. Open Chrome Extensions: chrome://extensions/

  3. Drag and Drop CRX file onto Extensions window

  4. The extension will autoupdate via Github but you can click "Update Extensions Now" to force a check/update

Or: You can also install from Google Chrome App Store.

  1. Go to the options page of the extension and put your Slack token, which you can get from here (click you on the green button "Create token" and you'll get a token like xoxp-0123456789-12345678)

  2. Reload Slack page

PS: It doesn't work with the Slack app, you need to use the web interface (e.g.: http://*.slack.com)

TODO

  • Add more drawing options, like stroke width and stroke color
  • Possibility to edit/annotate existing images
  • Choose canvas dimensions
  • Port to Firefox
