So far I’ve been using the hubot-pretend package for the testing of the hubot-command-mapper. But as that test package is no longer maintained / updated, I wanted to switch to something that is more in line with what Hubot itself does: hubot-mock-adapter.
At Wehkamp, we use the Hubot Grafana project to make our Grafana dashboard available in Slack. It mainly helps our standby team to make quick assessments on what’s going on with our website. Last year, we saw we could not upgrade the package from 2.5.2 to 3.0.1, because slugs could not be used anymore. But we use slugs and… quite heavily! So we did not upgrade our Grafana v7… until we got hit by the input field bug. We decided to see what we could do to bring our slug feature back to our ChatOps bot!
Lately we’ve been playing around with ChatOps at Wehkamp. We added a Hubot to our Slack channels to automate some operational jobs. It makes work more fun and way easier. As it is hosted in our own infrastructure, it can interact with our micro-services. In this article I explore how to use ES6 and a Promise to implement a call to a simple web-service.
