A simple wrapper around the Slack web api to post messages

Project description

Simple wrapper around the Slack Web API to post messages.


Slackelot contains a single function:
send_message(message, webhook_url, pretext='', title='', author_name='', color=None)

webhook_url should be in the following format: ''


from slackelot import send_message

webhook_url = ''
message = 'Who wants to push the pram?\n@lancelot @percival'
pretext = 'Knights of the Round Table'
title = 'Spamelot'
author_name = 'Arthur'
color = '#663399'

send_message(message, webhook_url, pretext=pretext, title=title, author_name=author_name, color=color)

Extra Goodness

Paid teams have the option to mention other subteams, (ie. channel). In that case, you might append something like this to your message:

'\n<!subteam^ID|HANDLE>' (replace ID and HANDLE with your subteam’s id and name, respectively).

For more information on message formatting, see the Slack API docs
