Different actions for different adapters (template? but...)

Hi all,

How could I reply differently according to the adapter currently used?

Here is the case:

I generate an image each time a specific sentence is sent to lita.
I'd like to:

- reply with the image to Slack (or equivalent) when Slack is the Adapter currently used
- save the image locally and reply "ok, done" when Shell is the Adapter currently used --> mainly for test purpose

I'm not sure I can do it with the templates.

How could I do then?

Thank you

I think templates will allow you to do that.  Give it a try and ask again if that doesn't work ;)

It depends what you mean by replying with the image for Slack. If you just want to link to an image hosted on the web somewhere, templates can certainly achieve that. If you're talking about sending the image to Slack as an upload or attachment, then templates won't cut it currently. Attachment support doesn't exist yet with the Slack adapter, but there is some discussion of it on GitHub you might want to follow and contribute to:

This was exactly my question, thank you Jimmy.

I'd like to do something like:

response.reply img.to_blob

but it seems that it is not feasible for the moment, thanks for the pointer anyway.
