Project description

A minimal Python HipChat client with command-line interface.

Setup

Install hipchav from source, or using pip:

pip install hipchav

Then you’ll need to configure it with your HipChat API key:

export HIPCHAT_V1_TOKEN=thisismyhextokentheygaveme

or for the v2 API:

export HIPCHAT_V2_TOKEN=thisismyhextokentheygaveme

Usage

HipChav currenly only supports two functions, listing rooms and sending messages.

Listing rooms

$ hipchav.py rooms
Developers
Whole company
Bots only

Sending messages

Messages are quite straight-forward to send:

$ hipchav.py message 'Whole company' 'Freshly baked cookies in the kitchen'

You can also change their color and send notifications to people in the room:

$ hipchav.py message --color=red --notify 'Developers' 'Um, the build is broken'

With the v1 API, you can also choose who the message appears from:

$ hipchav.py message --from=Glados 'Whole company' 'Dispensing deadly neurotoxin'

Check its usage information for full options:

$ hipchav.py --help
