slackson

I wrote a Slack bot that controls and reacts to the state of Sonos controllers on your network. It can send GIPHYs to the channel as well as analyze the sentiment of the lyrics of the current song.

Running

You will need to provide your own credentials within config.js, a sample-config.js is provided as an example. The bot server must run on the same network that hosts your Sonos devices.
