Query Instapaper using Slack commands

You can query your Instapaper account from Slack using the '/yoke' command.

Connecting Yoke to Slack

Configure a “Slash Command” listed under “DIY Integrations & Customizations” in the Slack Integrations page with these fields:

Once the integration is configured, you can click the “Slack integration” link in the profile drop-down (top-right of the screen) to obtain the /yoke login [user] [token] command which links your Yoke and Slack accounts.

That's it! You have connected Slack to your Yoke board, and can query Instapaper and 48 other applications from the comfort of your Slack chatroom. Read more about the Slack-Yoke integration.

Querying Instapaper

If you are a new Yoke user, you must first create cards that connect to Instapaper. Yoke supports cards that query bookmarks in Instapaper, optionally filtered by the like flag or the folder.

/yoke list shows all the cards on your Yoke board. Here's a sample response:

Here's a list of your cards:

• ... and card titles from other connected apps

/yoke list bookmarks lists the items in the first card.

You can click the links to jump to the bookmarks themselves.
