You can setup your own bot by running the Slack Developer Kit for Hubot.
Bot-zero is a de-cluttered version with some extras.

First time setup

The root of the project after running the NPM install.

Improving local development

Writing is usually not the problem,
maintenance is.

Removed coffee examples, added ES6 examples

Brian Donovan started the Decaffeinate Project
to turn .coffee files to ES6 JavaScript.
Building a progress indicator is easier than you think. Just update the message through the Slack API. The effect is pretty neat.

Testing

That’s all
