Alert Boy

Look! Up in the Sky! It's...

A really simple alert script runner that sends a Slack webhook message whenever the
status of a user-define command changes. Useful to get alerting up as quickly as possible
in lieu of a more elaborate alerting system - just docker run and go.


docker pull justinturpin/alertboy

The following environment variables configure alert boy:

  • COMMAND: The command to execute. This is executed as a shell command so it can be elaborate.
  • INTERVAL: How frequently to run the alert, in seconds.
  • WEBHOOK_URL: The webhook url to post to. This url should be compatible with Slack webhook posts.
  • NAME: A name to attach the alert to.
  • TIMEOUT: The amount of time to wait for the command to finish before killing it, in seconds. Default is 10 seconds.
