Build Status

Access Slack API's using Crystal.

Projectfile

deps do
  github "manastech/crystal_slack"
end

Shards

slack:
  github: "manastech/crystal_slack"

Usage

You can get a Slack::SlashCommand from an HTTP::Request or its body:

require "slack"

request = HTTP::Request.new "POST", "/", body: "token=..."
command = Slack::SlashCommand.from_request(request)
puts command.text

You can create a message and send it using either webhooks or the chat.postMessage API:

require "slack"

message = Slack::Message.new("some_text", channel: "some_channel")

# send to webhook
message.send_to_hook "https://hooks.slack.com/services/..."

# send using the chat.postMessage API
api = Slack::API.new "some_token"
api.post_message(message)

More complex messages are supported. Please check the Message class. You can also get the users and channels given an token.

Todo

Lots of API methods are missing!
