Unofficial GroupMe @all

@all is a third-party GroupMe chat bot built on Hubot. It was configured to be deployed on Heroku to get you up and running as quick as possible.

This project is not sponsored by, endorsed by, or managed by GroupMe. This is entirely a third-party project and is 100% open sourced. Use at your own risk.

For questions or concerns, please contact the repository owner, not GroupMe.

Features

Mention (tag) everyone in your group at once!

Blacklist users who don't need notifications.

Deploy to heroku easily!

Using

In practice, users can simply write @all anywhere in their message to tag everyone in the group. The bot will repeat their message and tag everyone in the group in their repeated message.

You can also control a blacklist/whitelist via chat commands as well. This is a bit more advanced, so please review the source code yourself if you're interested to do this.


Deploying to Heroku

  1. Fork the repository to your GitHub account
    • And please star it to show your support. It's free for you and helps me a lot 💛
  2. Log in to Heroku
  3. Create a new app
  4. Deploy from your GitHub and select the repo
  5. Configure environment variables (and optionally Redis)

If you're deploying via Heroku, you're done! 🎉 The rest of this document is more specific to non-heroku users. See the end of the document if you need help.


Manual setup

Configuration

Start by configuring the environment variables below:

  • HUBOT_GROUPME_TOKEN
  • HUBOT_GROUPME_ROOM_ID
  • HUBOT_GROUPME_BOT_ID

And optionally configure a Redis server for blacklist persistence.

Running

Once configured, you can compile the bot with npm run build and then run the bot with npm run start.

You should now be able to open the GroupMe room you've chosen and tag everyone in the group by mentioning @all!


For more help

Since this is one of my most popular repos, I wrote a blog post on configuring and extending this project. Please check this out if you have trouble! Finally, I'm always happy to help you with any other troubles that may come up, so please open a new issue! :)
