Track English and Russian reviews for iOS and Android Angry Birds apps and post them to separate channels:

critics --ios=343200656 --android=com.rovio.angrybirds \
        --slack-webhook=YOUR_SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL \
        --language=en --language=ru \
        --ios-channel="#ios_reviews" --android-channel="#android_reviews"

Previous command, but using env variables:

CRITICS_IOS=343200656 CRITICS_ANDROID=com.rovio.angrybirds \
CRITICS_IOS_CHANNEL="#ios_reviews" CRITICS_ANDROID_CHANNEL="#android_reviews" \
