We started thinking with the aim of building something which would help developers. We realised that there is a power-up available for Slack but not for one of the most popular communication platform, Hipchat. We decided to build this power-up which simplifies the process of sharing cards and board updates in your Hipchat room!
What it does
Hipster has two major features as of now:
- Send any card from the board to your room in just single click!
- Enable notifications and get all the updates to your room directly.
How we built it
We started learning and reading on how to build power-ups. Once we got some idea, we started building project on Glitch. The entire process of building the power-up was surprisingly very simple because of Glitch and trello apis. The server is built using node.js.
Challenges we ran into
We faced few issues with authorisation for trello APIS. When we tried storing the token on the callback URL, it saved the token on the server's domain which was inaccessible from trello.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have a working power-up which developers can start using right away.
What's next for Hipster
Sending cards to individual members and customizing the notifications menu are the two tasks on our minds.
