Functions are provided that make it possible to interact with the 'Slack' platform 'API'. When you need to share information or data from R, rather than resort to copy/ paste in e-mails or other services like 'Skype' <http://www.skype.com/>, you can use this package to send well-formatted output from multiple R objects and expressions to all teammates at the same time with little effort. You can also send images from the current graphics device, R objects, and upload files.
