A client for Slack.com, that plays sound files on request e.g.
This is designed to run on a box in your office hooked up to speakers. That way everyone in your slack channel can enjoy its magic.
This plugin implements the python-slackclient to listen to channels its in (or direct messages) and responds to requests to play sounds of the format:
Automatic w/ PyPI
$ sudo apt-get install python-dev $ sudo pip install websocket $ sudo pip install slackclient
You'll also need an audio player that can handle the format
$ player path/to/file.mp3
I recommend mpg123 because it 'just works' with mp3s. Alternatives are aplay, paplay, mplayer, etc.
$ sudo apt-get install mpg123
Note: You must obtain a token for the user/bot. You can find or generate these at the Slack API page. You also need to create the bot for that matter.
Put the token in a file called token.txt in the same directory as sounds.py
Run the bot:
$ python sounds.py
Chat with the bot directly, or post in a channel its a member of:
