Custom Slack slash commands (on Heroku)

Imagine writing “/info web” in your Slack and receiving latency, percentage 4xx, 5xx errors from your webserver directly through Slack. Or “/app web” to receive current deployed version and last deploy timestamp. Or “/analytics web” to receive most popular URLs or number of visits. Well that’s perfectly doable!

Here’s a dummy slack slash command server git repo that demonstrates how to use slash commands in Slack.

It’s a part of a workshop on Slack and Hubot (Norwegian) me and a few others held at work..
