Send to Slack

Since we only receive questions of the type True or False, we can use the following standardized Slack message:

Trivia Question of the day, post your answers in the thread. TRUE or FALSE?


In Slack, it will look something like this:


There are many ways of modifying this app to your preference. You can add multiple choice questions and check through an If Condition what type of question you received to trigger different Slack messages.

Furthermore, the Open Trivia Database returns questions which contain special characters in weird formats. In order to avoid that you can change the HTTP request to:

and add a DB Query right after:

select convert_from(decode({{steps.asd.outputs.Body.results.0.question}}, 'base64'), 'UTF8') 

to receive the right format.
