Full Description

Docker repo for jumpstarting with Slackin.

Quick Run Command

You can run the following command to get your Dockerized Slackin up and running, with some caveats (below):

docker run -d -p 3000:3000 -e SLACK_ORG=teamName -e SLACK_TOKEN=apiToken bitandbang/slackin

Docker Run Flags

  • --name is only needed when interacting, makes subsequent commands easier - Docs
  • -d runs in detach mode - Docs
  • -p is port mapping - Docs
  • -e sets an env variable - Docs


To get the Slackin app set up successfully, you will need to do the following modifications to the example command:

  • Replace teamName with the name of your Slack Team. For example, the name of slack team at would be nsmeetup
  • Replace apiToken with an Oauth Test Token generated by an admin user in the Slack Team. Generally, it's good to create an entirely new user for this purpose.
