Configuration file

The only required option to start sending messages to slack is the webhook url. You can either set this in a configurations file (globally in /etc/slacksend.conf or locally in $HOME/.slacksend.conf) or specify it on the CLI with the –url argument.

This is an example of a configuration file for slacksend:

[DEFAULT]
url = https://hooks.slack.com/services/XXXXXXXXX/XXXXXXXXX/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
icon = :ghost:
username = This is a bot
channel = @myself

Example usage

echo "Hello world!" | slacksend -U https://hooks.slack.com/services/XXX
slacksend -U https://hooks.slack.com/services/XXX "Hello world!"
