Slacker 2.0

I just pushed a massive update to Slacker.

For the uninitiated: Slacker is a tool for posting funny replies to Slack as your favourite characters.

For fans of Slacker: Lots of improvements! I've done a 100% rebuild from version one.

The first major change is the removal of Slack API tokens. Now you can simply click the 'Sign in with Slack' button and it will take care of the rest.

Once you're in you'll see a total overhaul of the user interface. You can now sign in to multiple Slack teams and quickly switch between them from the Google Material-ish Design side panel.

I've added a bunch of new built-in characters (mainly based on the most common requests that I've gotten). The new character form has grown smarter too.

You'll also see the new 'Clone Team Member' button. I know you were technically able to clone team members before but the user experience was a bit clunky (and used the somewhat unreliable and now dead mustachify.me service).

The last big change that I'll mention is that Slacker now works great on your mobile for posting funny replies on the go.

To find the other updates go check out Slacker for yourself.

If I just made your day a little better then thank me with a coffee:
