With the Slack app you can easily set up personal notifications for your favorite apps. Walterbot is a chat bot in Wercker that will keep you updated and allows you to take action directly from inside Slack.
Here's an example notification:
Want to start using it?
You can start using the app in 3 simple steps:
- Install the app for your Slack team (using the button below)
- Link your Wercker account with the app with the
/walter register [token]command. You can generate the token on https://app.wercker.com/profile/tokens
/walter subscribeto set up the notifications you want to receive
Can I get notifications in other channels (instead of a direct message)?
Currently, Walter only communicates directly with you. Having Walter communicate in public channels is something we are considering for the future.
How can I contact you?
The following commands are supported:
/walter registerlinks your Wercker account with the slack app
/walter subscribeset up personal notifications for the apps that you want to keep posted on
/walter unsubscriberemove notifications you no longer care about
/walter unregisterallows you to unlink your Wercker account (from the Slack app)
/walter [command] helpwill give you hints about which commands and options there are and what they do
/walter register [token]
Go to your profile at https://app.wercker.com/profile/tokens and generate a new token. This token allows the Slack app to verify who you are on Slack and ensure that you can also get notifications for private applications.
/walter subscribe list
Returns a list of notifications, for example:
/walter subscribe to wercker/slackbot on fail for build by me
Displays a list of subscriptions:
You'll be asked to confirm each deletion, so there's no chance of accidentally deleting a notification.
Allows you to unlink your Wercker account. As a consequence all subscriptions you've created will also be removed (since they won't work anyway).
