Slackit

Slackit is a plugin developed for Revit that enables the software to communicate with team members via Slack. This allows the model to alert users if something goes awry and giving a programmable interface for model management and maintenance.

Installation

For easy installation download the zip file for your Revit version. Unzip the contents into the appropriate Revit addin location: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\[YEAR]

Usage

Run the plugin and enter the token to your Slack site. Select the Slack channel you want the Revit model to post to and save the settings. Sync with central and watch the fun.

Current function

Messages are sent to a specified channel (no groups or DMs yet)

Random gifs (via Giphy) are embedded into the messages by keywords search. GIF can be large, small, or turned off
