Quick example

Here is an example of how you can access the API's chat.postMessage method to send a message to one of your Slack channels:

// Acme\DemoBundle\Controller\MySlackController

public function sendAction()
    $payload = new ChatPostMessagePayload();
    $payload->setChannel('#general');   // Channel names must begin with a hash-sign '#'
    $payload->setText('Hello world!');  // also supports Slack formatting
    $payload->setUsername('acme');      // can be anything you want
    $payload->setIconEmoji('birthday'); // check out emoji.list-payload for a list of available emojis

    $response = $this->get('cl_slack.api_client')->send($payload);

    // display the Slack channel ID on which the message was posted
    echo $response->getChannel(); // would return something like 'C01234567'

    // display the Slack timestamp on which the message was posted (note: NON-unix timestamp!)
    echo $response->getTimestamp(); // would return something like '1407190762.000000'

In Slack, that should give you something like this in the #general channel: Example of a message posted to Slack

These and more examples can be found in the usage documentation.
