Slackbot that responds to slash commands with rendered LaTeX.
Full Description

Slack Latex Bot

A simple bot that takes in Latex equations in the URL and returns the
corresponding png image.

To run, either use the Makefile and run make start (you'll have to set your
hostname in that file) or run the script directly. You will
also have to configure your Slack instance to talk to the bot. To do this, go
to and add a slash
command configuration. Set the Command to /latex, and set the URL to
http://YOURLATEXBOTHOSTNAME:PORT/. The Method should be POST.

Run with Docker

To run with Docker, simply execute:

docker run -d -p 8642:8642/tcp --restart=always --name latexbot \
  emichael/slacklatexbot -H $HOSTNAME

where $HOSTNAME is the name of the host on which the bot is running.
