We’re using Hubot for very limited automation and integration with our messaging apps. We’ve renamed it from “hubot” to “alfred”.
To make a request, you simply begin with “alfred …” Like, for example, you need it to build a cluster, the instruction might be
alfred build <region> <name> Of course, the ‘region’ and ‘name’ are variables that you’ll define when running it. You could even just do
alfred help to get a complete list of every defined process that it’s capable of. Really simplistic, honestly.
But the confusion that arises just from the bot’s name is amusing. People mistakenly (accidentally on purpose?) type things like:
albert build us-west-2 devcluster
alvin build eu-west-1 mycluster
alexa do the build
Heh… remember that SNL skit from a couple of years ago? Same thing, really:
