    bolt-remote is a remote http server plugin for Bolt slack bot based on Express web framework. You can use this plugin to make awesome plugins and access your bots remotely with http requests.


    First install Bolt and make it work. Then use npm and install it:

    npm install --save bolt-remote


    Bolt knows the plugins by their package name prefix. It's loading all bolt-* modules as plugin and pass them a Bolt instance. They can modify the bot or do anything else with the instance.

    This plugin only needs some configuration in your Bolt config.js file. Make sure you have the following config structure in your bot config:

    export default {
      // some other config
      // .
      // .
      remote: {
        server: {
          hostname: '',
          port: 3000
        auth: {
          key: 'token',
          value: 'DmO6HEvdga5OEva8CxEAZs30C5j7DPhN'
      // maybe some more other config here too
      // .
      // .
    • server: The config object has 2 keys, hostname and the port. The default value is and 3000.

    • auth: Auth configuration which used to implement a simple query string token based auth with following props:

      • key (string): Query string key for auth token string.
      • value (string): Our uniques and safe token to passed as value of key param in query string.


    This plugin adds a remote property to your bolt instance. This remote property is a Express server instance which can be used to define routes, middlewares and etc.
