Running as a Slackbot on Linux

First go to your Slack workspace and add app. Search for "bots" and install the official bots app. Name it "agenda" and save.

Install coffeescript on your server with:

npm install coffeescript -g

Next, create the following file inside of the bin directory.




npm install

forever start -l /home/SOMEWHERE/agendabot.log -a -c coffee node_modules/.bin/hubot --adapter slack --name agenda

# Uncomment the line below to turn on the web view
# forever start -l /home/SOMEWHERE/agendabot-web.log -a -c node web.js

Replace xoxb-YOUR_TOKEN_HERE with the token from Slack. Replace SOMEWHERE with a path to your log file (if you don't know what to put here, create a directory: /home/user/logs and store it there)

Make it executable (chmod +x bin/hubotslack) And run it: bin/hubotslack

Running Locally

You can start AgendaBot locally by running:

% bin/hubot

You'll see some start up output and a prompt:

[Sat Feb 28 2015 12:38:27 GMT+0000 (GMT)] INFO Using default redis on localhost:6379

Then you can interact with AgendaBot by typing agenda help.

agenda> agenda help
agenda adapter - Reply with the adapter
agenda add <item> - Adds <item> to the agenda
agenda echo <text> - Reply back with <text>
agenda help - Displays all of the help commands that this bot knows about.
agenda help <query> - Displays all help commands that match <query>.
agenda li/list - List the agenda
agenda ping - Reply with pong
agenda rm/rem/remove <item> - Removes <item> from the agenda
agenda schedule - Update the schedule
agenda time - Reply with current time


AgendaBot only requires that you set HUBOT_SLACK_TOKEN env var to the token given to you from Slack.

How to set environment variables will be specific to your operating system. Rather than recreate the various methods and best practices in achieving this, it's suggested that you search for a dedicated guide focused on your OS.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
