Command Line Tool for HipChat
pip install python-hipchat && hc
If your configuration file is not found by the hc command, it will guide you though creating one. The default configuration is in ~/.hipchat.cfg.
The configuration file is of the form:
[hipchat] api_token = abc123 room_name = cool_room ; This is the default room alias, one of the room aliases listed below.
[rooms] cool_room = 123
[message_sender] alias = ryan color = random ; gray, green, purple, red, yellow, random
Simple message sending:
hc “Hi, from Python-HipChat”
Altering the sender’s name and specifying the room alias:
hc –user “Dr. Nick” –room cool_room “Hi, everybody!”
