Slack Chat Bot Export/Hosting


#1

I’m looking to use glitch for a chat bot. I remixed a node project for creating one in slack.

The bot only seems to run when I have glitch open, is this the case?

Is there a way to export the file and what host do I need to run this simple node script?

The instance will shutdown after 5 minutes of no activity, https://glitch.com/faq#restrictions. To keep it alive you would need to hit an HTML endpoint every once in a while. You can use something like uptime robot or glitchup to take care of that - but you should do that sparingly. :wink:
