A small library to simplify slack web API calls
NOTE: This is an alpha version. Expect bugs and expect everything to change.
slackutils is a small library for simplifying some tasks with the Slack Web API. It is an extension of slackclient, and mostly contains methods for looking up users or channels by other parameters than their ID.
Recommended method is to install using pip. Note that we're still in alpha:
pip install --upgrade slackutils
You need a slack token to use this library. slackutils looks for the token using one of two alternatives:
- All methods support a named parameter
SLACK_API_TOKENwhich is used to authenticate.
- If no named parameter is found, slackutils will look for the environment variable
If neither of the above variables exist, an error will be raised.
Simplify looking up users and channels by other parameters than their ID
import slackutils marketing_channel = slackutils.conversations.get(name='marketing') from slackutils import get_user dave = get_user(firstname.lastname@example.org')
