Hubl.in Slack.com integration
Provides nice way to create free videoconference on https://hubl.in, a free and open source videoconference service based on webRTC.
While waiting to have an official integration on Slack, you will need to manually create some integration steps on Slack and to run the current node-based stuff on a server or in the so-calles Cloud.
Create an incoming webhook, cf https://.slack.com/services/new/incoming-webhook
Deploy the current Express based server somewhere (You know, git clone, npm install, ...)
Start the server
SLACK_WEBHOOK=URLFROMStep1 node index.js
Create a slash command integration on Slack, cf https://.slack.com/services/new/slash-commands
- Tell slack the command name (/hublin seems a good candidate)
- Tell slack where to send request ie where you server from step 3 is running. Append the /slash route to the URL.
- Tell slack to use the GET method
Once all is set, you will be able to create new video conferences from Slack
Will send you back a message with the conference link.
You can deploy on Heroku by using the Heroku button above or by using the Heroku client:
git clone [current repo] cd [current repo] heroku login heroku create [name] git push heroku master heroku config:set SLACK_WEBHOOK=[URL from step 1]
Once set, update the URL for the slash command on Slack.com to fit the URL of your newly deployed app
