Hey @Flohack, i have relayed the offer to slack but have not yet received anything new. I will share anything i get from slack.

@agrucza I am also creating a prototype for a slack client.
Great idea to contact slack and suggest the creation of a native app.
If any project is started, I would gladly join and contribute.
If I make any progress, I will share my findings with you all.
I was just reading about an Open Source alternative: Mattermost
(Just thought I'd throw that in...)
@3arn0wl Please do not take this as an offense but the whole point was to get Slack ported as its quite common to be used within companies.
E.g.: In my company slack is used for global communication between departments.
I have not yet heard anything new from Slack, beside that they appreciate the offer of assistance in the development. I will try to reach out to them again but to be honest i doubt that slack is investing resources in the Ubuntu Touch version.
I am a software developer myself and it's quite hard to push projects in the lanes when there is no solid return of the investments.
I completely understand, @agrucza, I'm just an evangelist for a better approach. I realise that it's an idealist standpoint and totally unfeasable in many circumstances
@agrucza it is possible to log in to workspace using Slaq client
So far it is supports desktops only, but I see no reason why it will not work on UBports with recent Qt version
@vladest Well, it depends on how you define workspace. Using the official slack API it is necessary to create a "slack app" in a workspace you want to connect to. With the app token, you will then be able to log into the slack RT API and the Web API into this workspace. You cannot switch workspaces to have a general client to connect to different workspaces the slack app is bound to the workspace it is created for.

I did some hacking today on Slaq to see if I could get it running on Ubuntu Touch. I was able to get it to run in
clickable desktop, but it crashes almost immediately on a phone. I pushed up my changes to https://github.com/bhdouglass/slaq if any one wants to take a crack at it (warning, it's super hacky!). On the desktop I was able to login by manually setting the tokens in here: https://github.com/bhdouglass/slaq/blob/master/qml/dialogs/WebLoginDialog.qml#L80

@bhdouglass Cool! But does it use their services API or the real client API? As far as I could see only the services API is made public, so to write bots and such stuff.

That is a good question, it does some hackery to get the login tokens so maybe not the services api.
