When you have SNS Topics, you may subscribe to them with various ways. For example, email subscription will send an email to a desired email address when a notification is pushed to a SNS Topic. Most of the time email subscription is not ideal as it may clutter your email box. Hence, there are other ways to subscribe to a SNS Topic. We think the most convenient way to subscribe to SNS Topic is a Lambda Function integration which sends callbacks to your specified Slack channel. This library project is about that. It creates a "Slack subscription" with a help of Lambda.


Create sns slack subscriber as any other lambda function:

from aws_sns_slack_subscriber.slack_subscriber import SlackSubscriber

lambda_function_slack_subscirber = SlackSubscriber(...)
