Build the future of work with the Slack platform

The Slack platform lets you extend, expand, and automate your workspaces. Ship quality code and deliver impactful automations that accelerate work for you and your team.

Develop flexible functionality on the next generation Slack platform

Assemble automations using modular, shareable, and remixable building blocks.

Functions

Create modular functions that automate work in Slack and connect with your services.

Share your functions so anyone can add them to their own workflows and apps.

Workflows

Workflows let you create complex and adaptable automations by building chains of functions.

Use your custom functions, pick from pre-defined Slack functions, or combine both to get the workflows you want.

Triggers

Add triggers to customize how and when to start a workflow.

React to events in Slack, run on a schedule, or kick off from external services using webhooks.

Go from idea to deployment faster

Quickly build secure, scalable apps with our next generation developer tools.

Slack CLI

Fast track development by creating, scaffolding, and deploying functions and apps from the command line.

Managed infrastructure

Deploy your automations to secure and managed Slack infrastructure, so you can focus on building.

Datastores

Streamline all your standard database operations by storing, querying and deleting data on Slack infrastructure.

App manifests

Save time when creating and configuring apps by using shareable and reusable manifest files.

Logging

Resolve issues faster by using function-level and app-level logging to debug.

Quickly connect to other services

Message metadata

Tell Slack about events that are happening in your services by publishing messages with metadata. Then anyone can build workflows and apps with your service at the center.

Use metadata published by others to integrate your services with theirs in Slack. No complex APIs requiredβ€”just simple, structured metadata.
