SlackStatus – set Slack status for multiple accounts
This app allows to set Slack status to predefined values from a command line, for multiple accounts at once:
slack-status set lunch
This will set yourself away for an hour, with an hamburger emoji and “Lunch” status text.
Note: you could be prompted to give Keychain access to Chrome storage. This is one-time only request, and it’s required
slack-status scrapes Slack cookies from your browser, and uses that cookie to set status on your behalf.
# Add tap to your Homebrew brew tap haimgel/tools # Install it brew install slack-status # Configure (see below for details) mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/slack-status cp config-sample.yaml ~/Library/Application\ Support/slack-status/config.yaml vi ~/Library/Application\ Support/slack-status/config.yaml
Sample configuration file
# List of accounts you wish to control. `slack-status` will scrape the cookie from your browser, so you don't need # to configure anything besides the name of the team. The name of the team the part before .slack.com, e.g. if your # Slack team is at https://team1.slack.com/, put just "team1" in this list. accounts: - team1 - team2 - team3 # Pre-define statuses you want to set with this app. Be sure to quote the emoji name. Duration uses Go duration notation, # e.g. 60m is 60 minutes. statuses: - name: lunch emoji: ':hamburger:' text: Lunch duration: 60m - name: call emoji: ':phone:' text: In a call duration: 60m - name: brb emoji: ':brb:' text: BRB duration: 60m
