Chatting Dogether

Do Chat joins the power of Tasks, Projects, and Notifications with simple real-time discussions, so your team can Do and plan practically anything. Do Chat is in Private Beta. If you're interested in testing Chat before it's launched, send an e-mail to

Hubot + Do + Heroku = Like

  1. Create a new Do account for your robot to use. To simplify things, you might invite a user to your group from the sidebar. Tip: You can use to create a new account without a seperate email address.

  2. You'll need to apply for Do OAuth v2 credentials. This typically takes less than a day, and will be automated in the next few weeks.

  3. Download the latest Hubot package.

  4. Expand the .zip or .tar.gz file somewhere convenient, perhaps in ~/Workspace/

  5. Edit hubot/package.json and add hubot-do to the dependencies section. It'll look something like...

    "dependencies": {
      "hubot-do": "latest",
      "hubot": ">= 2.3.2",
  6. Edit the Procfile and either add or replace the existing process to enable Hubot for Do. You can also use the -n option to name your robot. We call ours 'Cylon'.

    web: bin/hubot -a do -n Cylon
  7. Initialize a git repository in your hubot directory.

    cd hubot      
    git init
    git add .
    git commit -m "Initial Commit"
  8. Install the Heroku Toolbelt if you haven't already.

  9. Create a Heroku application, and give it a cool name.

    heroku create mysterious-robot
  10. We recommend adding the free Redis To Go add-on so your robot can remember things. Memory is nice.

    heroku addons:add redistogo:nano
  11. Setup the Do Hubot Adapter by adding your OAuth v2 credentials and your Hubot user's username and password.

    heroku config:add HUBOT_DO_CLIENT_ID=130f5290f86737a8a387ec335db5ea18f1db2160 \
      HUBOT_DO_CLIENT_SECRET=a4db718b998b87ff2e090c69c4918083a3834dfe \ \

    Security Advisory: The user you created in step one will have access to your group just like any other. Additionally, anyone you add as a collaborator to your Hubot app on Heroku will be able to extract the password from the application's runtime. Don't use the same password as your personal account.

    If you're developing applications atop the Do platform, or wish to contribute to hubot-do, you can have hubot-do log activity on the client:

    heroku config:add HUBOT_DO_DEBUG=true

    Additionally, the HUBOT_DO_DEBUG_VERBOSITY variable allows you to specify the granularity of log messages you wish to receive. Currently, events and errors are visible at level 2 and the full text of our push payloads are visible at level 3.

  12. With your fingers crossed, and heart set, deploy and start your Hubot instance!

    git push heroku master
    heroku ps:scale web=1
  13. Login to [Do][1] with your Hubot's e-mail address and password. Then join any chat rooms you'd like it to participate in. Future releases of hubot-do will automagically join all available rooms.

Running Locally

To run your Hubot for Do locally, you should touch .env in your hubot directory and define your enviroment variables there. Learn more about Foreman and .env files.
