NAME

Net::Async::Slack::RTM - realtime messaging support for https://slack.com

DESCRIPTION

This is a basic wrapper for Slack's RTM features.

The realtime messaging API is mostly useful as an event stream. Although it is possible to send messages through this API as well - see "send_message" - the main HTTP API offers more features.

For a full list of events, see https://api.slack.com/events.

METHODS

events

This is the stream of events, as a Ryu::Source.

Example usage:

 $rtm->events
     ->filter(type => 'message')
     ->sprintf_methods('> %s', $_->text)
     ->say
     ->await;

send_message

Sends a message to a user or channel.

This is limited (by the Slack API) to the default message formatting mode, so it's only useful for simple messages.

Takes the following named parameters:
