Mattermost’s workplace messaging solution increases productivity by bringing people, conversations, and tools together in one place.
It can connect with hundreds of systems and 3rd party applications via methods such as private cloud open source integrations, incoming/outgoing webhooks, language-specific drivers, RESTful APIs, CFI, and Public Cloud Connectors. The question is, which add-ons are the most useful?Here we reveal our picks for the top 10 Mattermost integrations.
1. Puppet Module
Easily install Mattermost with this deployment solution. The module installs the Mattermost server, installs and configures a daemon (service) for Mattermost, and configures Mattermost according to the settings you provide. Afterward, you will need to configure SSL and SMTP email for Mattermost to make your system production-ready.
Matterbridge is a simple bridge between Mattermost and various clients like IRC, Slack, HipChat, Matrix, Steam, and more. It relays messages, supports private groups (on Slack and Mattermost), enables bridging the same bridges, supports multiple in and out bridges and gateways, edits and deletes messages across supporting bridges, and includes a REST API to read or post messages to bridges.
Here you have a Giphy integrations service. It enables you to query Giphy by issuing commands in a Mattermost channel using Mattermost outgoing webhooks. When you do, you will receive an animation below the request in a posted message. It will be a non-deterministic result from the Giphy database that matches your keyword.
Hubot, also known as “your friendly robot sidekick” is an automation tool created by GitHub that’s able to sync with chat services. This Hubot adapter connects to your Mattermost server which enables the bot to be invited to any channel like a normal user. It then listens for commands and executes them.
5. Mattermost Bot
Next, is the chatbot for Mattermost. This bot is based on Mattermost WebSocket API, has a simple plugin mechanism, can handle messages simultaneously, and it will reconnect to Mattermost if your connection is lost. Further, it has Python3 support.
6. Mattermost Bot Sample
The Mattermost Bot Sample helps you to understand how to use the 4.0 GoDriver to interact with the Mattermost server. You will listen to events and dig through the code to see how it will respond to different messages. Further, you will log into the Mattermost server, create a channel, modify user attributes, and post a message to a channel.
This webhook bridge translates Jira webhooks into those for Mattermost. The result? You can push data between the two. Jira is one of the most popular issue-management tools, if not the most popular. It’s used by 75,000 customers in 122 countries for project management functions, issue tracking, and bug tracking.
Integrate Bitbucket through this bridge that will convert the Bitbucket webhook request so that Mattermost can properly interpret it. Bitbucket is a web-based hosting service that is used mostly for code and code review. Its user base has grown to more than 6 million developers and 1 million teams.
Using this plugin, you can send build notifications from Jenkins to a self-hosted installation of Mattermost. Jenkins is a continuous integration server that helps developers quickly find and resolve defects in their code. It also enables the automation of build testing.
Lastly, we chose the PivotalTracker integration service. It will post comments, along with news story and status changes to Mattermost’s incoming webhooks. The result is an easier integration of changes from Pivotal Tracker into your Mattermost instance.PivotalTracker is aproject planning tool made to help software development teams realistically predict project timelines.
