Slack Integration with the Team GitHub Account

Since we are moving our team’s workspace to GitHub, it is possible to connect GitHub with the team #training channel in Slack. We would be able to get notices when activities take place in GitHub. What activities you ask? Things like:

  • issues
  • pulls
  • statuses
  • commits
  • deployments
  • public
  • reviews
  • comments
  • branches
  • commits:all

We can choose which of these, if any, we think would be useful to be notified of in the Slack channel. We can turn them on or off as needed if the are/aren’t working for us.

Is this something we want to do? Now? Later? All of it? Some of it? Please share your thoughts in the comments below!
