A very basic framework for creating Slack bots.
The bot will respond to messages in IM channels, and also to messages
explicitly directed at him in general channels (
@nameofthebot: some message).
The bot reads the Slack api token from the environment variable “DANIBOT_SLACK_API_TOKEN”.
The default danibot executable comes with a few example handlers:
up? host port
Checks if a port is open in a host.
Checks the value of key in a dictionary that is loaded at startup with the –dict parameter. The dictionary is a json object with string values.
Lists available options.
Right now the bot ignores most chat events apart from messages.
To create your own customized bot, import
Network.Danibot.Main and pass a
value of type
IO (Either String (Text -> IO Text)) to
Text -> IO Text is the type of the handler function.
