The latest update to CodeStream for VS Code (v0.14.0) allows you to connect your Slack workspace to a CodeStream team. Instead of creating a new, separate set of channels and DMs on CodeStream, you’ll have access all of your existing Slack channels and DMs. Start chatting with your teammates right away, even before you’ve invited them to CodeStream, because they’ll be receiving your messages on Slack… just as if you had posted them from Slack yourself!
Posting a comment or question about code works the same way it always has. Select some code, then “Add CodeStream comment” from the lightbulb menu, and then type your message. The only thing different now is that Slack handles the messaging. CodeStream, however, maintains the connection between the message (and any replies) and the code block, and displays the marker in your source file.
Here’s how to get started...
This is just a starting point for CodeStream’s Slack integration, and we hope to evolve things rapidly based on your feedback. Don’t hesitate to share that feedback with us via GitHub issues, on Twitter @teamcodestream, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share your thoughts and feedback @teamcodestream.
CodeStream helps development teams discuss, review and understand code. CodeStream links comments and issues directly to the code blocks they refer to, making them instantly available to everyone on the team.
Your team knows a lot about your code but the knowledge is locked inside the heads of individual developers.
CodeStream helps to capture and share that knowledge, making your team happier, more productive and more resilient.
