Yobot is an incredibly powerful tool that does one thing: YOs a Slack channel of your choice.
- Set up the Slack incoming webhook Yobot will use.
- Deploy Yobot to a server of your choice (it's pretty much ready to go if you want to deploy to Heroku.) Make sure to set the
WEBHOOK_URLenvironment variables in the
.envfile, to the Slack incoming webhook url you'll use to post to slack. See
- Request access to the Yo API. When filling out the form, enter your Yobot's URL in the callback URL field and the channel you want to post to, like
http://your.yobot.url/channel/your-channel-name. You can have different Yo accounts posting to different Slack channels by changing the url.
- Add the username you selected in the API form to your YO app.
- YO said account.
- Rejoice when you see your YOs in your Slack channel.
