Weekend Challenge: Slack Support Client in JavaScript

Lately I’ve been wanting to spend more of my free time building small projects to challenge myself. One challenge I set up for myself this weekend was to build a JavaScript project using zero external plugins — something that could run on its own. The other challenge was to build something that would also be useful. The result is sl.js.

What is sl.js? It’s a JavaScript support client for Slack that allows people to embed a support box in their site, allowing users to communicate with them via a Slack channel. It allows for multiple site users to interact with a single Slack channel without each user seeing each other’s messages (while those in the Slack channel can see everything).

Check it out and give it a try: https://github.com/bradmb/sl.js
