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 integrates all of your essential dev tools, such as GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, Slack, Teams, Jira, Trello and more, into VS Code, Visual Studio, and any JetBrains IDE.
During our daily stand-ups we demo features in development to allow everyone, which now includes you too, to stay in the loop and provide early feedback.
