slackr: Send messages, images, R objects and files to channels/users

Slackr contains functions that make it possible to interact with messaging platform. When you need to share information/data from R, rather than resort to copy/paste in e-mails or other services like Skype, 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 (as RData), and upload files.
