Hubot-scripts comes with a reminders script. It is great, but (purposely?) missing the ability to add reminders for your team. Here's how I added team notifications.
In this bit, we add an extra regex match to capture
who. Everything else is identical to the original script.
robot.respond /(remind )(.*) in ((?:(?:\d+) (?:weeks?|days?|hours?|hrs?|minutes?|mins?|seconds?|secs?)[ ,]*(?:and)? +)+)to (.*)/i, (msg) ->
who = msg.match
time = msg.match
action = msg.match
Hubot comes with an incredibly useful fuzzyname search. So go ahead and shorthand your teammates name, just be sure to be specific enough so there aren't multiple results.
users = robot.brain.usersForFuzzyName(who)
if users.length is 1
user = users
This is the key change. Most default hubot scripts respond to the person who wrote the request, here we need to set the user within msg.envelope.user to the one we captured above.
msg.envelope.user = user
And finally, create the reminder.
reminder = new Reminder msg.envelope, time, action
If you find this useful, you can add this code to the end of the remind.coffee script found in hubot-scripts and move it where ever you're loading your scripts.
