Slack Invite Automation

A tiny web application to invite a user into your slack team.

Inspired by How I hacked Slack into a community platform with Typeform and Socket.io's slack page.

Deploy to Heroku

Setting

fill out config.js as your infomation.

  • community: your community or team name to display on join page.

  • slackUrl : your slack team url (ex: socketio.slack.com)

  • slacktoken : access token of slack. You can generate it in https://api.slack.com/web#auth. You should generate the token in admin user, not owner. If you generate the token in owner user, missing_scope error will be occurred.

  • inviteToken: an optional security measure - if it is set, then that token will be required to get invited.

  • locale: application language (currently en, de, es, fr and pt available).

    You can test your token via curl:

     curl -X POST 'https://YOUR-SLACK-TEAM.slack.com/api/users.admin.invite' \
     --data 'email=EMAIL&token=TOKEN&set_active=true' \
     --compressed

Run

Node.js is required.

$ git clone git@github.com:outsideris/slack-invite-automation.git
$ cd slack-invite-automation
$ npm install
$ bin/www

You can access http://localhost:3000 on your web browser.
