weatherbot

weatherbot

A Slack bot that fetches weather from predefined locations and posts it to our slack channel. It uses forecast.io API and Slack API.

This is what it looks like in Slack: screenshot

Configuration

You'll need Slack token as well as forecast.io API key. Weatherbot needs these tokens stored in ENV variables:

$ export SLACK_TOKEN=your_slack_token
$ export FORECAST_KEY=your_forecastio_key

I recommend direnv for that purpose.

Usage

$ node app.js slack-channel-name

Cron job (optional)

You can create a bash script and add it to cron so it runs every day at 9, for example:

# m h  dom mon dow   command
0 9 * * * /home/pi/code/weatherbot.sh

weatherbot.sh

#!/bin/bash
export SLACK_TOKEN=your_slack_token
export FORECAST_KEY=your_forecastio_key
cd /home/pi/code/weatherbot
/usr/local/bin/node app.js kollegorna
