Implement Support for Slackline
Posting from Justin I on old feature request forum: https://mattermost.zendesk.com/hc/communities/public/questions/204151705-Slackline-for-Mattermost
http://slackline.io/ lets you connect 2 channels from different accounts.
It would be great to be able to do this with Mattermost to make transitioning from Slack to Mattermost easier.
i.e. we can have people on Mattermost and Slack, but all conversations that happen on Mattermost are pushed into Slack and visa-versa so that holdouts don't miss anything.
If it helps, code is here: https://github.com/ernesto-jimenez/slackline

Did anyone ever actually start work on this? (I'm particularly interested in the mattermost <-> mattermost case.)
Just to add, if anyone wants to build this, you can use either Mattermost outgoing webhooks or APIs/drivers described at: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/blob/master/doc/developer/API.md
There are several open source projects that do two-way interaction with Mattermost channels that could be used as a reference for this as well:

If possible, could we generalize the title to something like "Implement Support for Slackline"? This way it is more about increasing the productivity of Mattermost, and less about pulling users from Slack (which is the goal, don't get me wrong). I just feel like supporting Slackline in general is a good/great idea, even if all nodes are Mattermost. The fact that this also allows transition from Slack for some firms is an added bonus.
My 2 cents.

Hi, Ernesto from Slackline here.
If you want to look into this, we would be happy to help and open up APIs to make it possible. Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
PS: The code in the repo is just the first prototype we built with less than 100 lines of code. Slackline.io is several orders of magnitude bigger ;)

yes please. This would be the final barrier to entry for many parties.
