SlackBolt

A JavaScript framework to build Slack apps in a flash with the latest platform features

Credential configuration

To configure this credential you need the signingSecret and the bot token of your Slack app. You can see how to create an app and find the needed secrets here.

Optionally you can set any of the extra config params you can see here.

Here you have an example of a filled credential configuration form in YepCode:

SlackBolt snippets available in editor

note

The title is the triggering text for YepCode to autocomplete the script.

Excluding the Web Api, the rest of the slack bolt features have no place in yepcode due its nature.

Integration

New integration from credential
const app = await yepcode.integration.slackBolt("credential-slug")
New integration from plain authentication data
const { App } = require("@slack/bolt")

const app = new App({
token: "my-token"
signingSecret: "my-signing-secret"
})

Using the Web API

Lists channels
const listChannels = async () => {
try {
const { channels } = await app.client.conversations.list();
console.log(result);
} catch (error) {
console.error(error);
}
};
listChannels();
Retrieve messages
const retrieveChannelMessages = async () => {
try {
const result = await app.client.conversations.history({
channel: "channel",
});

const { messages } = result.messages;

console.log(messages);
} catch (error) {
console.error(error);
}
};
retrieveChannelMessages();
Post a message
const postMessage = async () => {
try {
const result = await app.client.chat.postMessage({
channel: "channel",
text: "He who controls the Spice, controls the universe!",
});
console.log(result);
} catch (error) {
console.error(error);
}
};
postMessage();
Upload a file
const { createReadStream } = require("fs");

const uploadAFile = async () => {
try {
const result = await app.client.files.upload({
channels: "channel",
initial_comment: "Here's my file :smile:",
file: createReadStream("fileName"),
});

console.log(result);
} catch (error) {
console.error(error);
}
};
uploadAFile();
