Discussion: Join us on Slack


Great! I just received and already signed in :thumbsup:.


I personally would of used Jabbr:



Can I be invited if I give my personal slack name? It’s seanmangosing.slack.com

Everytime I enter my email it asks me to create a new account.


That’s my experience with Slack teams. I just go through the motions with the same information and it works fine.


I heard that there is somewhere #electron channel on Slack? Is it true?
Is everybody allowed to enter that channel?
What is the adress of that? I have Slack acount (other team), but when I try to enter this address https://electron.slack.com it forces me to log in again.



In the link you’ll see the word ‘channels’ on the left, you can click that to see all the other channels



Thanks. But I’m still can’t see that because of login panel (in spite I am logged in to Slack).


The official Electron Slack is the same as Atom’s. Just go to the #electron channel when you get there :grinning:


Each Slack team has it’s own login, so you’ll need to create an account for each new Slack team you join. (Yes, even if you use the same username and credentials and everything.)


Oh.Thanks. It works.


Try opening an incognito/private browser before going, and go directly to atomio.slack.com. I tried from incognito and I don’t see that page from there.

Also, whether or not that works, you should definitely submit an issue somewhere, maybe at the atom.io repo on github. I’m guessing those are atom’s instant sign in options and they either don’t realize what’s happening or they don’t have enough control over the slack API to change it. (Here’s to hoping it’s the former)


@hex13 … follow the instructions here to get an invite:

Like specifically the part that says click here: http://atom-slack.herokuapp.com/


Oh, thanks it works.


Why not use Discord? Its sort of like slack except its free forever. I believe reactiflux is already using Discord for their chat with around 10k users.


How do I join? I’ve asked for my invite…


The invite process should email you with instructions on how to log in.


I have not yet. I will keep looking for an email.


OMG. I felt like I been scrolling forever to get to this post. THANK YOU


Since no one has mentioned it, I would like to recommend Riot as an option for the real-time chat. Unlike Slack and Gitter, it is a free and open source platform that is also decentralized, powered by the Matrix protocol. They have a slick web app, desktop apps built using Electron, and Android and iOS mobile apps. You can create a free account on matrix.org if you like, or you can run your own homeserver like I do and participate just as easily. The similarities between the Atom and Riot projects make it a natural fit in my opinion.


I would go with discord, as currently many communities (not only gaming but a lot of coding communities, like TCD with thousands of users) are using it.
