an Abbot package for Discord by Serious Business
A skill that tells you who is currently on call.
Abbot is a programmable bot that turns your team chat into a shared command center. We handle all the boilerplate of building and running these conmmands so that you can focus on making tools that help you ship faster.
We built Abbot because we saw the power of this style of work (called ChatOps), when we worked at GitHub. ChatOps made it possible for GitHub to work productively without meetings, while globally distributed. We think it's a pretty great way to work, so we made it easy to use in Slack, Discord, and Microsoft Teams.
The oncall skill is more for demonstrative purposes than anything else. It shows how to store and retrieve data specific to the skill. Having said that, there's nothing stopping you from using it as a super simple tool to track who is on call.
@abbot oncallTells you the current person on call. @abbot oncall @philSets @phil as the person on call if @phil references a user in the system.
Fixed the code for parsing arguments.
This is the first version of the package! It allows specifying a user as being on call. You can then find out who is on call.
