Slack is a great platform for team communication, it is a collection of chat rooms, both public and private. It helps confine all your team communications to one place. Slack also provides an API to let you interacte with it, so i have to decided to write a simple app using Flask to integrate Slack with Launchpad using its new webhooks feature.

Launchpad & Slack logos

Deploying to Heroku

You can check the full steps in the README file

$ git clone
$ cd launchpad-slack
$ heroku create
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku open

Once installed and everything is configured, things will start working like a charm :

Slack chat
Slack Slash command
