Slack API in Go GoDoc Build Status

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/go-slack/Lobby

This library supports most if not all of the api.slack.com REST calls, as well as the Real-Time Messaging protocol over websocket, in a fully managed way.

Change log

Support for the EventsAPI has recently been added. It is still in its early stages but nearly all events have been added and tested (except for those events in Developer Preview mode). API stability for events is not promised at this time.

v0.2.0 - Feb 10, 2018

Release adds a bunch of functionality and improvements, mainly to give people a recent version to vendor against.

Please check 0.2.0

	// If you set debugging, it will log all requests to the console
	// Useful when encountering issues
	// api.SetDebug(true)
	groups, err := api.GetGroups(false)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("%s\n", err)
