Built on top of the Slack API github.com/slack-go/slack, Slacker is a low-friction framework for creating Slack Bots.

Features

  • Supports Slack Apps using Socket Mode
  • Easy definitions of commands and their input
  • Slash Command and Block Interactions supported
  • Available bot initialization, errors and default handlers
  • Simple parsing of String, Integer, Float and Boolean parameters
  • Contains support for context.Context
  • Built-in help command
  • Replies can be new messages or in threads
  • Supports authorization
  • Bot responds to mentions and direct messages
  • Handlers run concurrently via goroutines
  • Produces events for executed commands
  • Full access to the Slack API github.com/slack-go/slack

Install

go get github.com/shomali11/slacker

Preparing your Slack App

To use Slacker you'll need to create a Slack App, either manually or with an app manifest. The app manifest feature is easier, but is a beta feature from Slack and thus may break/change without much notice.

Manual Steps

Slacker works by communicating with the Slack Events API using the Socket Mode connection protocol.

To get started, you must have or create a Slack App and enable Socket Mode, which will generate your app token (SLACK_APP_TOKEN in the examples) that will be needed to authenticate.

Additionally, you need to subscribe to events for your bot to respond to under the Event Subscriptions section. Common event subscriptions for bots include app_mention or message.im.

After setting up your subscriptions, add scopes necessary to your bot in the OAuth & Permissions. The following scopes are recommended for getting started, though you may need to add/remove scopes depending on your bots purpose:

  • app_mentions:read
  • channels:history
  • chat:write
  • groups:history
  • im:history
  • mpim:history

Once you've selected your scopes install your app to the workspace and navigate back to the OAuth & Permissions section. Here you can retrieve yor bot's OAuth token (SLACK_BOT_TOKEN in the examples) from the top of the page.

With both tokens in hand, you can now proceed with the examples below.

App Manifest

Slack App Manifests make it easy to share a app configurations. We provide a simple manifest that should work with all the examples provided below.

The manifest provided will send all messages in channels your bot is in to the bot (including DMs) and not just ones that actually mention them in the message.

If you wish to only have your bot respond to messages they are directly messaged in, you will need to add the app_mentions:read scope, and remove:

  • im:history # single-person dm
  • mpim:history # multi-person dm
  • channels:history # public channels
  • groups:history # private channels

You'll also need to adjust the event subscriptions, adding app_mention and removing:

  • message.channels
  • message.groups
  • message.im
  • message.mpim

Examples

Example 1

Defining a command using slacker

package main

import (
	"context"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/shomali11/slacker"
)

func main() {
	bot := slacker.NewClient(os.Getenv("SLACK_BOT_TOKEN"), os.Getenv("SLACK_APP_TOKEN"))

	definition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			response.Reply("pong")
		},
	}

	bot.Command("ping", definition)

	ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
	defer cancel()

	err := bot.Listen(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

Example 2

Defining a command with an optional description and example. The handler replies to a thread.

package main

import (
	"context"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/shomali11/slacker"
)

func main() {
	bot := slacker.NewClient(os.Getenv("SLACK_BOT_TOKEN"), os.Getenv("SLACK_APP_TOKEN"))

	definition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Description: "Ping!",
		Example:     "ping",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			response.Reply("pong", slacker.WithThreadReply(true))
		},
	}

	bot.Command("ping", definition)

	ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
	defer cancel()

	err := bot.Listen(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

Example 3

Defining a command with a parameter

package main

import (
	"context"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/shomali11/slacker"
)

func main() {
	bot := slacker.NewClient(os.Getenv("SLACK_BOT_TOKEN"), os.Getenv("SLACK_APP_TOKEN"))

	definition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Description: "Echo a word!",
		Example:     "echo hello",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			word := request.Param("word")
			response.Reply(word)
		},
	}

	bot.Command("echo <word>", definition)

	ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
	defer cancel()

	err := bot.Listen(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

Example 4

Defining a command with two parameters. Parsing one as a string and the other as an integer. (The second parameter is the default value in case no parameter was passed or could not parse the value)

package main

import (
	"context"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/shomali11/slacker"
)

func main() {
	bot := slacker.NewClient(os.Getenv("SLACK_BOT_TOKEN"), os.Getenv("SLACK_APP_TOKEN"))

	definition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Description: "Repeat a word a number of times!",
		Example:     "repeat hello 10",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			word := request.StringParam("word", "Hello!")
			number := request.IntegerParam("number", 1)
			for i := 0; i < number; i++ {
				response.Reply(word)
			}
		},
	}

	bot.Command("repeat <word> <number>", definition)

	ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
	defer cancel()

	err := bot.Listen(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

Example 5

Defines two commands that display sending errors to the Slack channel. One that replies as a new message. The other replies to the thread.

package main

import (
	"context"
	"errors"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/shomali11/slacker"
)

func main() {
	bot := slacker.NewClient(os.Getenv("SLACK_BOT_TOKEN"), os.Getenv("SLACK_APP_TOKEN"))

	messageReplyDefinition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Description: "Tests errors in new messages",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			response.ReportError(errors.New("Oops!"))
		},
	}

	threadReplyDefinition := &slacker.CommandDefinition{
		Description: "Tests errors in threads",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			response.ReportError(errors.New("Oops!"), slacker.WithThreadError(true))
		},
	}

	bot.Command("message", messageReplyDefinition)
	bot.Command("thread", threadReplyDefinition)

	ctx, cancel := context.WithCancel(context.Background())
	defer cancel()

	err := bot.Listen(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}
}

		Description: "Upload a word!",
		Handler: func(botCtx slacker.BotContext, request slacker.Request, response slacker.ResponseWriter) {
			word := request.Param("word")
			client := botCtx.Client()

Troubleshooting

My bot is not responding to events

There are a few common issues that can cause this:

  • The OAuth (bot) Token may be incorrect. In this case authentication does not fail like it does if the App Token is incorrect, and the bot will simply have no scopes and be unable to respond.
  • Required scopes are missing from the OAuth (bot) Token. Similar to the incorrect OAuth Token, without the necessary scopes, the bot cannot respond.
  • The bot does not have the correct event subscriptions setup, and is not receiving events to respond to.

	// BotInteractionModeIgnoreApp will ignore any events that originate from a
	// bot that is associated with the same App (ie. share the same App ID) as
	// this bot. OAuth scope `user:read` is required for this mode.
	BotInteractionModeIgnoreApp

	// BotInteractionModeIgnoreNone will not ignore any bots, including our self.
	// This can lead to bots "talking" to each other so care must be taken when
	// selecting this option.
