@Slate

Text-to-image/ascii art

@Slate is a text-to-image (and text-to-ascii art) application that allows for digital graffiti in Slack.

Be advised that there are currently issues with the Slack iOS app.
We recommend waiting a few weeks until these are resolved to use @Slate on iOS. We will update this page once the issues are resolved.

Here’s how it works:

  • Run /slate, optionally followed by a message, to pull up the dialog where you can configure your options.
    • Compose or edit your message.
    • Select a background color.
    • Select a font color.
    • Select a font.
    • Click Send to drop a rendered image of your message into Slack.

  • Run /ascii, optionally followed by a message, to pull up the dialog where you can configure your options.
    • Compose or edit your message.
    • Select a font.
    • Click Send to drop an ASCII art message into Slack.
