Would a Slack library be useful for anyone?


#1

I am considering creating a library for Enonic Xp to integrate with Slack messaging client. Please let me know if anyone has thoughts around this, would it be useful for anyone out there?


#2

Yes, this would be very cool!

On our intranet, we have a direct link to the Slack profile of every employee on their profile page. It would be great to have a proper integration, e.g. showing their online status, which channels they are active in, and so on.


#3

I was actually thinking the other way around, like sending slack notification to channels on Enonic XP events, like a form submission or similar, but fetching Slack team information of employees is also a nice use-case that I will have in the back of my head if I decide to create a library / app.


#4

I’ve done different types of push messages to slack and had also an idea about creating a lib.

But its hard to figure out what to implement.

I think its maybe a good approach to create a wrapper around an existing slack project.
