Slack Bot Starter

This is an Encore starter application for a Slack bot. It brings the greatness of the cowsay utility to Slack!

Developing locally

When you have installed Encore, you can create a new Encore application and clone this example with this command.

encore app create my-app-name --example=ts/slack-bot

Running locally

Run your application:

encore run

To use the Slack integration, set the Slack signing secret (see tutorial above):

encore secret set SlackSigningSecret

Open the developer dashboard

While encore run is running, open http://localhost:9400/ to access Encore's local developer dashboard.


Deploy your application to a staging environment in Encore's free development cloud:

git add -A . git commit -m 'Commit message' git push encore

Then head over to the Cloud Dashboard to monitor your deployment and find your production URL.

From there you can also connect your own AWS or GCP account to use for deployment.

Now off you go into the clouds!
