Slack connector

A connector for Slack.



  - name: slack
    # required
    api-token: "zyxw-abdcefghi-12345"
    # optional
    bot-name: "mybot" # default "opsdroid"
    default-room: "#random" # default "#general"
    icon-emoji: ":smile:" # default ":robot_face:"


The connector itself won't allow opsdroid to do much. It will connect to Slack and be active on the default-room but you will still need some skill to have opsdroid react to an input.

Luckily, opsdroid comes with a few skills out of the box as well. So once you run opsdroid you will see that it joined either the room that you set up on default-room parameter in the configuration or it will be in the #general room.

Note: If opsdroid failed to join the room you can always invite him by clicking info>Members section>invite more people...

You can also interact with opsdroid through direct message. To do so, just click on opsdroid's name and type something on the box that says "Message opsdroid".

Example of a private message:

fabiorosado [7:06 PM]

opsdroid APP [7:06 PM]
