Usage

The Linc Slack app integrates seemlessly with your existing Linc workflow.

Just push a commit and Linc bot will post a message to a provided Slack channel whenever one of your builds passes or fails:

For successfull builds, Linc bot posts a message containing per environment preview links, allowing you to instantly run your code change without needing to click through to the Linc interface.

For failed builds, Linc bot posts a message containing a direct link to the build log so you can quickly inspect what went wrong.

Whether your build passess or fails, all Linc bot messages contain direct links to the commit and the branch.
