Anyone know a way to archive slack channels to Gmail? I use Slack for work, which we pay for, but I have a little private one just for some friends I grew up with. I’m looking for a way to just archive all of that communication to a gmail account just for time capsule purposes.

    You can write a little script leveraging and use it “search” for the messages you want to archive. The easiest way is to go channel by channel and then dm by dm.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.

  • PHPMailer

    The classic email sending library for PHP

    You would then need to setup a function to loop over to use json objects and “email them” you could actually use the same inbox(email address) you are storing the data in to send the data to that mailbox. Using SMTP you could use a lib like to accomplish that piece.
