Automating Slack with AppleScript

Hi everyone!

I’ve created an AppleScript library for automating Slack along with a language dictionary to make things readable. Details on how to install and use it can be found here https://github.com/samknight/slack_applescript

Please let me know if there’s any improvements that could be made or if you end up using it for anything helpful.

I typically use it with alfred to trigger the scripts for setting my status at lunch and creating a standup call every morning with my remote team. I have used keyboard maestro to trigger the scripts at a certain time as well. There are however downsides to automatically turning on your microphone in a channel without you triggering it! So be warned.

If I wasn’t about to be moving part of the team projects I’m working on from Slack to twist, this would definitely be useful! However, like with some other posts that I found while Peru’s in this amazing resource, I’ll keep it in the back of my mind for Slack teams then I’m sure I’ll be joining in the near future.

Keep up the awesome work, and love seeing all of the creativity people have in this form.

Best

Michael
