import Foundation

struct Slack {
    struct Config {
        // set your bot token here
        static let BotToken = "----Your Bot Token----"

Customize response

Check out /App/MyResponseHandler and follow the instructions written in comments to override the functions.

For example, if you want to respond to a specific message, "how are you?".

override func response(toMessage text: String) -> String{
    if text == "how are you?"{
        return "I'm good"
        return "Sorry, my response is limited."
