Feeding your Slack, thing.
In the summer of 2014 Slack was growing like crazy. The service launched with a few key features that sharply contrasted the existing social network experience at the time. The two big items:
Beyond a clear and obvious protocol for like minded people to communicate; even more features existed in the value proposition:
All the features began to outline how Slack is a central communication service with considerable potential.
We began to wonder....
To many, Slack started to outline what Social 2.0 would look like:
Early iterations on
iNTERsLACK were all over the place, but finally a bare
bones version was delivered (this app). Starting with YouTube as the first service
integration provided a solid base. We have a lot of other feeds to add, but
first is the experience
In Slack the web-hook is a VERY SECRET piece of information. Don’t leave that laying around or share with anyone you don’t trust.
iNTERsLACK, a web-hook
works very well as a single login credential, much like tokens are used for
various purposes on the internet.
A web-hook generally should look like:
START: To access
iNTERsLACK, only a valid web-hook is required. To start off the
process enter the hook in the start dialog, confirm the pin we send into
your Slack team, then start adding feeds.
EDIT: To edit an existing and valid (confirmed) web-hook simply enter the web-hook
in the start dialog.
iNTERsLACK will create a temporary session
for you to make changes.
LOG OUT: To log out of the editing session, choose “destroy session” (in the footer).
DEACTIVATE: To deactivate a web-hook simply delete or edit the web-hook in Slack and we will shut it down on our end.
To send you personal messages in channel. We respect your desire to be left alone in Slack, but as this service progresses we recognize two key truths:
We reserve the right to refuse our application’s service to anyone we so choose. It is not our goal to censor, but we can think of a handful of jerks who will get the boot (or worse) if we see them.
iNTERsLACKpulls in data from an external source (such as YouTube) and creates queued payloads for later delivery.
iNTERsLACKpushes payloads to a channel (via a feed subscription) that are new to the channel.
iNTERsLACKaction that catches up a web-hook to a new feed. A prime is the first push of new data, sometimes a few extra payload depending on internal algorithms.
