$ git clone https://github.com/kneitinger/slackov.git $ cd slackov $ sudo python setup.py install
Automatic method with 'pip':
$ sudo pip install slackov
First, acquire a Slack API token by clicking on your team's name or user name in the top left corner of the screen. which opens the Slack menu, From there, choose 'Apps & Custom Integrations'. There will be a button at the top-right corner that says 'Build your own', click that and then select 'Make a custom Integration'. Finally you will see 'Bots' listed. Click on that and follow the steps to register the bot and receive the API token. Store the API token in a file such as
~/.slackov_token and launch slackov with the command:
$ slackov -t "$(cat ~/.slackov_token)"
Additionally, you may specify a file where received messages are stored and/or loaded from, with the -f flag. The -v flag enables verbose output to stdout, printing all received and sent messages.
$ slackov -t "$(cat ~/.slackov_token)" -f ~/.slackov_words -v
As expected, the -h flag prints the program usage.
