I’m installing the Chatroom Integration Plug-in to keep communications clear between the Hub and Slack. Features that we can add include automatic posting in Slack whenever a new topic is posted on the Hub as well as sending transcripts from Slack into the Hub (though we can’t send full threads which is unfortunate - hopefully that gets built out in the near future).
Update: Discourse has created a chat plug-in! We’ll track that project here: Install Discourse Chat. I’ll move this topic to not-doing now. It can still be helpful in the interim but I think moving everyone to the Hub as chat gets stronger is likely the way to go.
