Have you ever wanted to avoid opening websites to check for updates, and instead receive them directly in the Slack channel of your choice?
Doing this used to require either a dedicated Slack app for the most common websites/web apps, such as Jira, or for the most adventurous to setup your own scraping infrastructure, and spend some evenings regularly to ensure it works.
This guide explains how to setup Slack with Monitoro to receive website changes directly in the Slack channel of your choice. This data could be anything from new tweets, price changes, new software releases.
Monitoro will connect to your Slack channel using an "Incoming Webhook". It's a special URL that tells Monitoro where to send the data it extracts from the website you're watching.
You can get an Incoming Webhook and setup the Slack channel easily by following the official instructions from Slack up to step 3, where you will get a URL that looks like the following.
Once you get this URL, go to https://app.monitoro.xyz/services and create a new Slack service, pasting the URL when it's required.
Now let's create a monitor to watch the website. Make sure to have the extension installed if you don't have it yet.
