I’ve been playing with the Slack library developed by Paul. See https://github.com/xojo/slack
It is really cool but does not work with Xojo Web apps.
I would like to send Slack messages from a Web App. I thought of launching a helper app, but that seems a little cumbersome and I’m not sure if a Desktop helper app would cause problems since it would need a logged in user. The only quick solution I can think of is to have the Web app post the messages to a database and then have a Desktop app running somewhere else monitor the database and send the messages to Slack.
Ideally, I would like the Web app to talk directly to slack. I’m assuming Paul used the new framework HTTP socket for a reason. Is it possible to re-write the library with the old HTTP socket? Anyone have a better idea?
