stable release of Slack Timebot.

what is Slack Timebot? at work, i very often have to know what time it is in the following regions:

  • PST
  • UTC
  • JST

so i wrote a mini go backend app that i threw into a free Google Appengine app and so now i can get the time instantly by using any of these new Slack /slash commands:

  • /time (PST)
  • /utctime (UTC)
  • /japantime (JST)

TL;DR/HOW-TO

  • you deploy a go backend app to Google Appengine that responds to
  • a couple of custom Slack /slash commands that you create in Slack
