Slackipy is a little web server which helps you automate user invites to your Slack team. It is written using Flask and for templating it uses Jinja2, hence it is very easy to customise and add new features like captcha, password requirement etc on top of it.


  1. Very easy to install, configure and customize
  2. Single click installations on Heroku or Openshift
  3. It is responsive and uses Material Design
  4. Works without JavaScript


You need following:

  1. Slack Team ID (SLACK_TEAM_ID): Your Slack team ID or sub domain. For example in, superheroes is the Slack team ID.

  2. Slack API Token (SLACK_API_TOKEN): You need to generate API token from your admin account. Go to and generate one.

  3. Flask Secret Key (FLASK_SECRET_KEY): Any random string, it will be used to protect the app from CSRF attacks. It will also come handy if you want to sign cookies.




Once you have installed and setup rhc, run the following:

rhc create-app slackipy python-3.3 --from-code SLACK_API_TOKEN="your-token-here" SLACK_TEAM_ID="team-id" FLASK_SECRET_KEY="some-random-key"
