Tool to send messages via Slack

Project description


Tool to send messages via Slack

PyPI package: ppslack

If you spot any problems or have any improvement ideas then feel free to open an issue. I will be glad to look into it for you.


The tool is available in PyPI and can be installed using pip:

$ pip install --user ppslack
$ ppslack --help

Once installed, a command line tool ppslack should be available in your system's PATH.


By default, the tool reads its configuration from ~/.config/ppslack file (the location can be overridden by setting environment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME).

The config file should look like this:


Usage - Help

$ ppslack --help
usage: ppslack [--version] [--help] [--debug] [--verbose] [-f SENDER] -t RECIPIENTS [RECIPIENTS ...] [-s SUBJECT] [-S] [-H]

Tool to send messages via Slack

  --help                show this help message and exit
  --debug               debugging mode
  --verbose             verbose debugging mode

  -s SUBJECT, --subject SUBJECT
  -S, --slack           Slack message (keeping for backward compatibility)
  -H, --code            send code block

$ echo 'The king is dead, long live the king!' \
  | ppslack -Hf 'Jon Snow' \

    sender='Jon Snow',
