What is Nimbella Commander?

Nimbella Commander allows you to build serverless apps and APIs for Slack (or for use as Slack slash commands). As a user, you don’t have to worry about hosting a server for your apps since we host your code on the Nimbella cloud, and because of Nimbella’s built-in security features, you don’t have to worry about securing your code or API keys. You can focus on writing your code and app logic.

To install Nimbella Commander, simply search Nimbella Commander into the apps tab in Slack and select it. Once you’re done, you’re ready to start creating custom commands or add command-sets!

What are command-sets?

Command-sets are a collection of pre-built commands. You can find our command-sets on our Github page.

Here is all the functionality you get with our DigitalOcean command-set:

droplet_ip - List IP addresses of a droplet.

droplet_list - Lists the droplets under your account.

droplet_status - Shows the current status of a droplet.

droplet_snap - Snapshots a droplet.

droplet_power - Command to turn a droplet on and off.

droplet_reboot - Command to reboot a droplet.

To install all these commands at once, run the csm_install command for DigitalOcean.

/nc csm_install do
