After having used Slack for Hackathons and projects and seeing the variety of emotional response, we thought it would be interesting to code a bot that would detect the emotional tones of Slack messages and respond accordingly.
How we built it
We used nodejs to create an Express web server linking to Slack and using the API to post messages to the Slack channel.
What's next for SlackFeel
Bots that can hold conversation and modify their own tone based on the responses they receive.
