Set your status in Slack

This is awesome! We’re already coming up with some interesting uses for this internally to include:

A terminal application that can set your custom status that:

  • has autocomplete
  • draws from a text file or something a list of statuses you use all the time (as the current interface doesn’t remember your previously used statuses)
  • can set your mood
  • can tie into other scripts so that your status can update when, for example, you’re deploying code
  • can set what Jira task you’re currently working
  • Perhaps something with Pagerduty
  • can let everybody know that you’re only responding to important messages as it’s after hours and you’re very busy watching Netflix
