Ok so this is my second CLI app version that Im heavily using now. The trend is to use a minimal CLI approach for doing the everyday tasks. The thing is desktop apps are cool, but why install a bloated desktop app, when you can run everything in a nice way using the Terminal?
So Slack CLI Client it is :)
I cool developer called Evan Yeung has done the hard work and all credit to him. It’s a pretty sweet implementation for a Slack CLI client.
You can check out his Github Repo for more details.
git clone https://github.com/evanyeung/terminal-slack.git && cd terminal-slack
- Get your Slack API Token - make sure its the legacy one.
export SLACK_TOKEN='[your token here]'
Bam! Slack in your terminal. Good for a lightweight setup and can be used on most computers and ever CLI servers :)
