I wanted to play with the Slack API, and I had a small amount of working Ruby code that retrieved information from the 511 API.
It currently takes a couple commands:
- say anything to get the muni bot to tell you what it does
routes- shows routes and prompts:
What route do you want?
- enter the route
stops- shows stops along the route and prompts:
What stop do you want?
- enter the stop
the bot responds with the time for the next 3 stops (if available)
