Set your Slack status via the command line

Requirements

Rather than host a web server that you would need to trust, this command runs one on your local machine to retrieve the OAuth code. This page is hosted with an embedded, self-signed certificate.

When the page loads for the first time, it will require you to trust the certificate or ignore the warning.

Here's how to do that on Firefox. On Chrome, you may have to enable chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost. If you can't get the link to open in Chrome, you can copy the URL into a different browser and try it there. It should work in Firefox or Safari.

Setup

  1. Install the command from the Releases tab

  2. Run the command! On first run, you will be asked to authenticate and install the app in your workspace

Example usage

Login (it will store it in ~/.config/slack-status-cli or your $XDG_CONFIG_HOME dir

slack-status -login
slack-status -login -domain custom-workspace-name
slack-status -make-default -domain new-default-workspace

Specify domain to use

# Use the deafult domain
slack-status :face_with_cowboy_hat: Howdy partner
# Specify domain for this status
slack-status -domain my-workspace :face_with_cowboy_hat: Howdy partner
# Specify domain for this status and make it the new default
slack-status -domain my-workspace -make-default :face_with_cowboy_hat: Howdy partner

Set status without emoji

slack-status Walking the dog

Set status with emoji

slack-status :walking-the-dog: Walking the dog
slack-status -emoji :walking-the-dog: Walking the dog

Set status with duration (eg. 10m, 2h, 7d12h)

slack-status 10m :walking-the-dog: Walking the dog
slack-status :walking-the-dog: Walking the dog for 10m
slack-status -duration 10m -emoji :walking-the-dog: Walking the dog

Set status with duration and snooze notifications

slack-status -snooze -duration 12h -emoji :bed: Good night
slack-status -snooze :bed: Good night for 12h

Set a status that contains a duration

# Set status to "On a break" for 5 minutes
slack-status :sleeping: On a break for 5m
# Set status to "On a break for 5m"  for 5 minutes
slack-status -duration 5m :sleeping: On a break for 5m
# Set status to "On a break for 5m"  with no duration
slack-status :sleeping: "On a break for 5m"

Clear existing status and snooze durations

slack-status

Snooze notifications without updating your status

slack-status -duration 15m -snooze

Development

Building requires you to have openssl installed on your machine and to export CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET environment variables. The certificate and client info can be overridden at runtime for development purposes by running with exported variables post compilation as well as placing the your openssl pem files in the application's config directory. See auth.go for more information.
