    botkit-storage-airtable

    An Airtable storage module for Botkit. A lot of the code is reused from botkit-storage-firebase.

    Usage

    Install

    yarn add botkit-storage-airtable` # or npm install --save
    botkit-storage-airtable
    
    

    Next, require botkit-storage-airtable and pass it a config with a apiKey, base, and tables options.

    Learn how to get an Airtable apiKey here.

    To get you started, you can use this Airtable template. Make a copy and modify it according to your needs. Airtable isn't schemaless so you have to do some data modeling to build anything custom.

    Then pass the returned storage when creating your Botkit controller. Botkit will do the rest.

    Make sure everything you store has an id property, that's what you'll use to look it up later.

    
    var Botkit = require('botkit');
    
    ...
    
      const tables = ['bots', 'users', 'channels', 'teams'] # for slack, add your
      Airtable table names
      airtableStorage = require('botkit-storage-airtable')({
        apiKey: '...',
        base: '...',
        tables: tables
      }),
      controller = Botkit.slackbot({
          storage: airtableStorage
      });
    

    Note: This may vary slightly depending on the bot platform you're building for. Just ensure to find and update the storage property of the controller with airtableStorage

    // then you can use the Botkit storage api, make sure you have an id property
    var beans = {id: 'cool', beans: ['pinto', 'garbanzo']};
    controller.storage.teams.save(beans);
    beans = controller.storage.teams.get('cool');
