Combining Slackbots into one, with gRPC

Hello all! I am suzuki-shunsuke from LINE IT Strategy team who is in charge of developing and running internal systems. Today, I’d like to share how I merged multiple Slack bots into one using gRPC.

How it all began

These days, my main tasks as a member of Slack management team, are making and operating slack bots at LINE. One day, we got a request to combine the bots we use into a single bot, for the following reasons:

  • Inviting numerous bots into a chat is a fuss.
  • Knowing all the bots available is difficult.
  • Adding more functions to a single bot is better than adding more bots.
