Creating an Amibroker Bot which Send Messages to Slack with the help of ChatGPT

3 min read

In this tutorial, we will be creating an Amibroker Alert Bot which transmits messages from Amibroker to the Slack Platform with the help of ChatGPT

Why Slack Platform?

Slack is a collaboration platform that allows teams and organizations to communicate and work together more efficiently. Slack allows users to communicate with each other in real time through channels and direct messages. It is a hang-around place for traders to communicate with each other better than the telegram/WhatsApp community as it is totally spam-free and traders can share their experiences and thoughts.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a variant of the GPT-3 language model developed by OpenAI. GPT-3 stands for “Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3” and is a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence (AI) model for natural language processing (NLP). It is trained on a massive amount of data and is able to generate human-like text by predicting the next word in a sequence based on the context of the words that come before it.

ChatGPT is a language model, not a programming language. It is trained to generate human-like text in any language, but it does not have the ability to execute code or perform other tasks that are typically associated with programming languages.

However, ChatGPT can be used as part of a larger system that is built using programming languages. For example, a chatbot that uses ChatGPT to generate responses to user input might be built using a programming language such as Python or JavaScript/VBScript. In this case, the chatbot would use the ChatGPT model to generate responses, and the programming language would be used to handle other tasks such as interacting with user input, accessing databases, and communicating with other systems.

Command to ChatGPT

write a vbscript to send message to slack channel using slack webhook

ChatGPT response

Sure! Here is a simple VBScript that you can use to send a message to a Slack channel using a Slack webhook:

Dim http
Set http = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")

Dim url
url = "https://hooks.slack.com/services/YOUR/WEBHOOK/URL"

Dim params
params = "payload={'text': 'This is a test message from VBScript.'}"

http.Open "POST", url, False
http.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
http.Send params

Set http = Nothing

To use this script, you will need to replace “YOUR/WEBHOOK/URL” with the actual URL of your Slack webhook. You can also customize the message text by modifying the “text” field in the payload parameter.

To run the script, you can save it to a .vbs file and double-click on the file to execute it. Alternatively, you can use the Windows command prompt to run the script by navigating to the directory where the script is saved and typing “cscript filename.vbs”.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

How to Create Slack Webhook URL

Creating Incoming Webhooks

To create a Slack webhook URL and attach it to a Slack channel, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Slack app directory and search for the “Incoming Webhooks” app. Click the “Add to Slack” button to install the app.
  2. Once the app is installed, click the “Add Configuration” button.
  3. Select the Slack channel you want to receive the webhook messages and click the “Add Incoming WebHooks integration” button.
  4. Slack will generate a Webhook URL for you. Copy this URL and save it somewhere safe, as you will need it later.
  5. Go to the Amibroker VBscript code that we received from ChatGPT you want to integrate with Slack and find the webhooks dummy URL and replace
  6. Paste the Slack Webhook URL you copied earlier into the appropriate field and configure any other settings as needed.
  7. Test the integration to make sure it is working as expected.
Adding New Webhook to Workspace
Attach Slack Channel to the incoming Webhook

That’s it! You have now created a Slack webhook URL and attached it to a Slack channel. You should now start receiving webhook messages in the selected Slack channel.
