=head1 NAME

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

=head1 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 L</send_message> - the
main HTTP API offers more features.

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

=head1 METHODS

=head2 events

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

Example usage:

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

=head2 send_message

Sends a message to a user or channel.

This is limited (by the Slack API) to the L<default message formatting mode|https://api.slack.com/docs/formatting>,
so it's only useful for simple messages.

Takes the following named parameters:

=over 4

=item * id - custom message ID (optional)

=item * channel - either a L<Net::Async::Slack::Channel> instance, or a channel ID

=back

=head1 METHODS - Internal

You may not need to call these directly. If I'm wrong and you find yourself having
to do that, please complain via the usual channels.

=head2 connect

Establishes the connection. Called by the top-level L<Net::Async::Slack> instance.
