Missing functionality from Slack Logs

Reported by: melchoyce Owned by: pento
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Slack & IRC Keywords:


  • Replace filter input with date picker (jQuery UI?)
  • Parse > as blockquotes
  • If possible, wrap mentions in a span using the .mention class
  • If possible, translate emoji shortcuts to actual emoji :)
  • Show a message if a channel has no activity that day (Maybe "No one has said anything in this channel today" ?)
  • Make search work
  • Some channels don't appear to be working
  • New channels aren't automatically added

Still to do:

  • Replace filter input with date picker (jQuery UI?)
  • Make search work
  • Make the channel list auto-hide on small screens

Probably not happening:

  • If possible, translate emoji shortcuts to actual emoji :)

Well, maybe.

Also, the "no activity today" message would probably like some styling. :-)

Finally, I'm pondering making the message window a bit more Slack-like. Pin the name/search box to the top, auto-scroll to the most recent message, and ajax load messages as the user scrolls back.

@pento Are you planning on adding more things here or can this be closed?

Nope, there's a bunch of functionality missing, I don't think it's maintainable to update this as Slack adds features.

I experimented with some 3rd party Slack log viewers a few months back, but they had similar problems, I don't think any of them support threads yet.

We can revisit this if Slack ever shuts down, or if we move to a different chat provider.
