Automation using Chat Bots with systems like Slack and GitHub

A Slack bot for GitHub organization management – and other things too - Netflix/hubcommander
What we do is pretty complicated. A big driver for us next year will be simplification
I think a combination of gitops tied with chatops will lower the bar for other members of an organization to contribute

So what do you people use?
I like Errbot - seems easy enough
looked at https://www.yellowant.com/ yesterday - but they seem to do a lot of marketing around solving problems Errbot has, but once I started looking deeper they really don’t
https://github.com/opsdroid/opsdroid seemed interesting given natural language processing plugin….

Today I played with zappier. Now don’t get me wrong, this is a big hack - but it’s awesome for prototyping workflows like this
I used the Slack integration to listen for messages to a
#test channel that contain
deploy version. then i filter for messages by a authorized user
@erik. then I format the message and extract version
1.2.3 and stage
production. then I call a webhook and pass that information. then I send a slack message with those fields as a response to the slack channel.
my biggest gripe is the round-trip time is ~20 seconds, so it doesn’t feel snappy
@michal.matyjek looks like yellowant is similar to zappier but with more of chatops slant, right?
sounds like it
We are also potentially looking at VictorOps, but not sure if they are as customizable as Zapier/other bots would be
