A framework for Slack RTM bots.

Project description

This library provides a simple asyncio based interface for writing RTM <> bots for Slack. Many distinct functions can be run through a single Slack bot plugin, triggered by user defined commands (e.g. !myCommand).


A bot which can be triggered by the message !greet Guido looks like this:

from import SlackBot, register
from asyncbots.command import MessageCommand
from pyparsing import alphas, Word

class MyBot(SlackBot)
    def __init__(self): = 'My Bot'

        # Match 'greet' followed by any word
        self.expr = 'greet' + Word(alphas).setResultsName('user')

    async def handler(self, sender, channel, parsed_message):
        return MessageCommand('Hello ' + parsed_message['user'])
