Project description

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!”
