"The best highly-customizable chatbot for your team."

What do you like best?

I'm using *several* forked versions of Hubot for a variety of teams. One for our company's internal Slack server, and two more for small online communities I manage. The number of community-developed (and tested) integration points for Hubot, and the ease of writing customized plugins, makes it an invaluable team automation tool.

What do you dislike?

Connecting Hubot to multiple "adapters" — services like Slack, IRC, and so on — is pretty much impossible. Choose the realtime service your team will use for communication, and connect Hubot to it. If you really have to bridge multiple realtime communication services, Hubot's just not up to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've wired out bot up for everything from realtime PTO/OOO tracking to project update notifications. Hubot isn't about a single killer feature — it's a tool for quickly smoothing out the rough edges of a team's communication. For distributed teams, it's especially useful.

"Easy way to create and deploy your own chat bot"

What do you like best?

The best part of Hubot is its integrations. Being able to develop and deploy your own bot tasks for Slack was great.

Another major thing is the infinite scripts developed by the community

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about Hubot is the language, being forced to use CoffeScript is not cool.

It would be good to be able to write vanilla JS to create scripts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go and try to use Hubot with community scripts, but try to create your own scripts its a really fun task and you can automate a lot of things with just a little bit of code.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Hubot to automate some deploy and CI tasks.

"Useful open source chat"

What do you like best?

Scripts included upon purchase, if you want to keep it simple to quick launch you can. Or you can dig in deeper and build out your own scripts. This is what you'd most likely eventually get to.

Comes with easy to read documentation.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, it's done exactly what I've needed it to do. I don't have many complaints with it and neither does the rest of my team/customers that are using it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use their support when needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Support. Fewer issues get to live support, and you don't feel like you're ruining customer experience either. We can also use this in-house, which instantly shows us an ROI on the purchase.

"Hubot makes Slack Bots Easy"

What do you like best?

I use a self hosted hubot for my companies slack chat system. Hubot has a plethora of plugins available for use. CoffeScript over Node.JS makes for easy plugins to be written for anything that doesn't already exist.

What do you dislike?

This is a developers toy. Day-to-day business users wont be able to set up hubot for doing much of anything without the help of a sysadmin. There's a steep hill to climb for initial setup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be ready to invest some setup time and energy into the initial setup.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've tied together our custom in-house software to our slack chat to allow for faster access to small pieces of info as needed.

"Customizable chatbot, slowly being replaced by slack/slackbots."

What do you like best?

The developer community surrounding the project. Extensible to chatrooms outside of basecamp (creators).

What do you dislike?

It's demise and inevitable replacement by the 100s of slackbots and hosted products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You're probably able to find a premade bot or just use slackbot. If you have a very niche need you could probably still use hubot to serve your script.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I customized hubot to support team morale, collect standup info, and set team members reminders.

"Simplistic bot for fetching a variety of important links and data."

What do you like best?

My experience with Hubot is exclusively through Slack. My job at Pantheon (as well as my team's) required us to review a customer's dashboard- which gave us visibility into their portfolio of sites.

Hubot's simplistic requests "Site me" and "Org me" made it quick and easy to access this data

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. I just wish I knew how to apply it to other things.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When there are gaps in your CRM data, especially those that give you access to your own product, Hubot makes is easy to find them and fill them.

"We use Hubot for everything; random gifs to deploying our whole site."

What do you like best?

Scriptability and Community. We've found that it's pretty easy to go from idea to working script that helps us automate whats important.

What do you dislike?

Not as easy for non-developers. Although scripts don't have to be written in coffescript, most of them are.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can never underestimate the value of automation. Humans make mistakes but you automate the one thing thats important it could mean less downtime in the future. Hubot helps us accomplish this.
