    Slack Location Manager

    npm version

    A command-line tool that sets your slack status for you depending on your location. Run the wizard to create a daily cron job, automating the process for the future.

    Purpose

    The team at F1V works in different offices depending on the day. We let our team know who is at which office by setting our slack status (e.g. use the 'house' emoji when we're working from home). Once you install this tool, this process will be automated by a daily cron job.

    If you're not part of our team and are considering using this, you can create a Slack app in your workspace and get a token from it.

    Install

    Globally install the package

    npm install -g slack-location-manager

    Setup the cron job

    Important: A token will be required for first-time setup, see below section How to get a Token

    slm install

    Other Commands

    slm log
     
    // Outputs the content of most recent cron job log file 
    slm set
     
    // Command that cron will call daily. Use this to test setting your status. 
    slm uninstall
     
    // This will remove the locally stored token and any related cron jobs from your machine 

    How to Get a Token

    Note: you should only have to do this once

    • Go to your workspace apps
    • Click Location Manager
    • Go to 'Install App' and click the 'Install App' button, and copy token
