I wonder if anyone already succeeded to integrate The Blue Alliance with Slack (http://slack.com/). Our team 3130 is using Slack for all teamwork communications as well as for keeping in touch with parents and all other fans of the team. I’d expect some other teams might do the same. So my thinking is it would be great if there was a way to have a channel for TBA updates into Slack that everyone on the team could monitor and didn’t have to poll the TBA servers individually.
I can see TBA provides an API for push notifications via webhooks. The Slack can receive webhook POST requests as well. The only problem is how to reshape TBA’s payload into Slack’s format (https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks). Technically it should be possible to do either on TBA side or Slack side or on an intermediate http server. Have anyone tried any of these opportunities yet? Thank you.
