Trying to decipher Slack’s API documentation? AFAIK, there are three major ways to build for Slack: 1) use their platform (for free until they release their pricing plan later this year. Be careful if you make many API calls, it will likely be expensive!). 2) Use Bolt JS / Python, which is a framework on top of #3. 3) Use slack-sdk or the API directly. uses #2 to plug in arbitrary data sources and LLMs to a Slack bot. The project is under heavy development, but if you’re building in this space, please feel free to borrow, steal, or fork. Contributions are welcome! I’d love to hear if the project is helpful to you!
