var Clients = cmap.New()

    This data structure holds all clients that are connected to Slack's RealTime API keyed by Team ID


    func InitClients

    func InitClients()

      InitClients initializes all clients which are present in Redis on boot. This looks for all hashes in the key RELAX_BOTS_KEY and calls NewClient for each hash present in the redis key. It also starts a loop to listen to REDIS_BOTS_PUBSUB when new clients need to be started. It listens to Redis on pubsub instead of a queue because there can be multiple instances of Relax running and they all need to start a Slack client.

      type Action struct {
      	Name    string        `json:"name"`
      	Text    string        `json:"text"`

      type Channel

      type Channel struct {
      	Id        string `json:"id"`
      	Created   int64  `json:"created"`
      	Name      string `json:"name"`
      	CreatorId string `json:"creator"`
      	Im bool

        Channel represents a channel in Slack

        type Client

        type Client struct {
        	Token     string `json:"token"`
        	TeamId    string `json:"team_id"`
        	Provider  string `json:"provider"`
        	Namespace string `json:"namespace"`
        	// contains filtered or unexported fields

          Client is the backbone of this entire project and is used to make connections to the Slack API, and send response events back to the user

          func NewClient

          func NewClient(initJSON string) (*Client, error)

            NewClient initializes a new client that connects to Slack's RealTime API The client is initialized by JSON that looks like this: {"token":"xoxo_token","team_id":"team_id","provider":"slack"} where token is the token used by the bot, team_id is the ID for the team and provider is "slack"

            func (*Client) IncrementHeartBeatsMissed

            func (c *Client) IncrementHeartBeatsMissed()

            func (*Client) Login

            func (c *Client) Login() error

              Login calls the "rtm.start" Slack API and gets a bunch of information such as the websocket URL to connect to, users and channel information for the team and so on

              func (*Client) LoginAndStart

              func (c *Client) LoginAndStart() error

                LoginAndStarts is a simple helper function that calls login and start successively so that it can be invoked in a goroutine (as is done in InitClients)

                func (*Client) ResetHeartBeatsMissed

                func (c *Client) ResetHeartBeatsMissed()

                func (*Client) Start

                func (c *Client) Start() error

                  Start starts a websocket connection to Slack's servers and starts listening for messages If it detects an "invalid_auth" or "inactive_account" message, it means that the token provided by the user has expired or is incorrect and so it sends a "disable_bot" event back to the user so that they can take remedial action.

                  func (*Client) Stop

                  func (c *Client) Stop() error

                    Stop closes the websocket connection to Slack's websocket servers
