Back on episode 25 of Nested Folders, Rosemary Orchard and I discussed agreements and the many kinds of these that are important for effective collaboration.
For me, a lot of these agreements end up getting supported by Slack, which is great.
This gave me an idea: what if I had a dictionary containing all the channel identifiers of my Slack workspaces? Then I could easily interact with them by web API.
Even better, could I make this Data Jar dictionary with a Shortcut?
Yes. Here you go!
As well, here are a few arguments to consider adding to the URL in the Shortcut for better utility:
- limit=1000 (if you have a big/busy workspace)
Lastly, I’d like to give a shoutout to this Medium post by Jake Bateman, which got me rolling in how to use the Slack web API. Very useful!
