slackcat @doug ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

# - "Are you sure it's on your path?"
echo $PATH | slackcat "#general"

Development of "SlackCat" is facilitated exclusively on GitHub. Contributions in the form of patches, tests and feature creation and/or requests are very welcome and highly encouraged. Please open an issue if this tool does not function as you'd expect.
**How to release updates**
If this is the first time you're releasing to pypi, you'll need to run: ``pip install -r tests/dev_requirements.txt``.
Once complete, execute the following commands:
git checkout master
# Increment the version number and tag the release.
# Upload the distribution to PyPi
python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel upload
# Since master often contains work-in-progress changes, increment the version
# to a patch release to prevent inaccurate attribution.
bumpversion --no-tag patch
git push origin master --tags
