Creating an Issue Notifier is our first entry for the Github Actions Hackathon. It notifies the owner of the repository on Slack when someone submits/opens an issue. In addition, this project can help the maintainers to track issues that other contributors submitted. Thus, this creates more interaction for an open-source projects.

When using this project, make sure that you have your Incoming Webhook URL.

It is a nice experience to create an app for your Development Slack Workspace. You can go to this link to start this.

Start by giving your slack app a nice and flaring name and choose which workspace to use it for. Then after you created your first app, go to the Incoming Webhooks Tab:

incoming webhooks tab on slack

Activate the Incoming Webhooks. Then at the bottom, click the Add New Webhook to Workspace button and select which channel it will make the posts.

Copy that link and paste it on your repository Secrets environment.

Name that secret SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL
