IPython magic for sending slack notifications

Project description


$ pip install ipyslack


  1. Load the extension:

    %load_ext ipyslack
  2. Configure Slack API:

    %slack_setup -t <api_token> -c <target_channel>

    To obtain the API token visit this page. The <target_channel> parameter may either denote a channel (e.g. #general) or a user (e.g. @me).

    Adding the option -u to %slack_setup will make yourself the sender of all messages. Otherwise (default) the messages originate from slackbot.

  3. Now adding:

    %%slack_notify <message>

    at the top of any cell will send <message> to <target_channel> whenever cell execution is completed.

    The patterns {out} and {err} within <message> will be substituted with stdout or stderr from the cell’s execution. The pattern {exc} denotes the exception (if any was thrown). The string \n denotes a new line.


    %%slack_notify *Completed!* :heavy_plus_sign:\nStdout: {out}\nStderr: {err}\nException: {exc}
  4. In addition, the line-magic %slack_send <message> lets you send notifications about partial results. E.g.:

    %%slack_notify All done. {exc}
    ... computation ...
    %slack_send Half-way!
    ... computation ...
