    Re-enable slack-attachment in hubot-slack

    When Slack introduced version 3 of their hubot-slack adapter the old slack-attachment was removed due to constraints in the RTM API.

    This module attempts to reintroduce the event using Incoming Webhooks to somehow replicate the lost feature.

    To use again slack-attachment events, just run the following in your hubot repository:

    npm install hubot-slack-attachment-optimised --save
    

    And then add hubot-slack-attachment-optimised to external-scripts.json.

    Last but not least, you need to add the environment variable HUBOT_SLACK_INCOMING_WEBHOOK to the URL for the new incoming webhook you've just defined.

    Usage

    Emit a slack.attachment event with the following parameters:

    robot.emit 'slack.attachment',
      message: msg.message
      content:
        # see https://api.slack.com/docs/attachments 
        text: "Attachment text"
        fallback: "Attachment fallback"
        fields: [{
          title: "Field title"
          value: "Field value"
        }]
      channel: "#general" # optional, defaults to message.room 
      username: "foobot" # optional, defaults to robot.name 
      icon_url: "..." # optional 
      icon_emoji: "..." # optional 

    Known Issues

    • The user name sending the attachment will be #{robot.name} (bot), so if your bot is named hubot it will appear as hubot (bot)
