NAME

App::GitHooks::Plugin::NotifyReleasesToSlack - Notify Slack channels of new releases pushed from a repository.

DESCRIPTION

If you maintain a changelog file, and tag your release commits, you can use this plugin to send the release notes to Slack channels.

Here is a practical scenario:

  1. Install App::GitHooks::Plugin::NotifyReleasesToSlack.

  2. Set up an incoming webhook in Slack. This should give you a URL to post messages to, with a format similar to https://hooks.slack.com/services/.../.../....

  3. Configure the plugin in your .githooksrc file:

            [NotifyReleasesToSlack]
            slack_post_url = ...
            slack_channels = #releases, #test
            changelog_path = Changes
  4. Add release notes in your changelog file:

            v1.0.0  2015-04-12
                    - Added first feature.
                    - Added second feature.
  5. Commit your release notes:

            git commit Changelog -m 'Release version 1.0.0.'
  6. Tag your release:

            git tag v1.0.0
            git push origin v1.0.0
  7. Watch the notification appear in the corresponding Slack channel(s):

            release-notes BOT: @channel - Release v1.0.0 of test_repo:
            - Added first feature.
            - Added second feature.

VERSION

Version 1.1.1

CONFIGURATION OPTIONS

This plugin supports the following options in the [NotifyReleasesToSlack] section of your .githooksrc file.

        [NotifyReleasesToSlack]
        slack_post_url = https://hooks.slack.com/services/.../.../...
        slack_channels = #releases, #test
        changelog_path = Changes
        notify_everyone = true

slack_post_url

After you set up a new incoming webhook in Slack, check under "Integration settings" for the following information: "Webhook URL", "Send your JSON payloads to this URL". This is the URL you need to set as the value for the slack_post_url config option.

        slack_post_url = https://hooks.slack.com/services/.../.../...

slack_channels

The comma-separated list of channels to send release notifications to.

        slack_channels = #releases, #test

Don't forget to prefix the channel names with '#'. It may still work without it, but some keywords are reserved by Slack and you may see inconsistent behaviors between channels.

changelog_path

The path to the changelog file, relative to the root of the repository.

For example, if the changelog file is named Changes and lives at the root of your repository:

        changelog_path = Changes

notify_everyone

Whether @everyone in the Slack channel(s) should be notified or not. true by default, but can be set to false to simply announce releases in the channel without notification.

        # Notify @everyone in the channel.
        notify_everyone = true

        # Just announce in the channel.
        notify_everyone = false
