Slack is a tool for managing team communications. Slack brings together all of a team's messages, files, and posts from Twitter, Dropbox, Trello, Google Docs, GitHub, and other services in one place. Once collected, these materials are archived and indexed so that they can all be searched at once. Native applications are available for iOS and Android devices to give users full access to Slack on the go.
Slack comes with an API that allows users to integrate it with other third-party applications. Some out-of-the-box integrations are provided, but the API provides additional functions above and beyond those. With the Slack API, users can upload an image or file, get a channel's history, set a channel's "unread" marker, retrieve lists of files, and search a Slack instance.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.

The Slack Node.js Sample Code demonstrates how to create a Slack app, setting up incoming webhooks, obtaining a token to use the Web API, setting up a local project, sending a notification, and calling a web API method.
