API Course for Slack


#1

Would love to see a course outlining how to use the Slack APIs, especially with Ruby.

Anyone able to help me out? :wink:

Hi marco - thanks for getting back to me!

Well I'm still kind of new to both APIs and Slack (which is why it would be great to get a tutorial going), but I reckon something like:

  • Creating a channel remotely and populating it with content and maybe a pinned file (e.g pulling a customer request from another platform such as Twitter and pushing it into Slack for internal discussion)

  • Creating a custom hook that when typed into Slack will pull all information of a particular channel out of the platform (perhaps name, list of users, conversation) ready to be passed into another 3rd party platform
