Slackword

Imagine having a conversation with your team on slack and someone drops a big word. How do you stay calm? This solution helps you find the meaning to these words right inside the conversation without breaking the flow. It maximises slack's slash command.

Here is a dictionary in your slack....additionally, you can get random words.
