10 of the best Rocket.Chat integrations

Rocket.Chat might have plenty of out-of-the-box features, but you can make it even more useful, efficient and fun with integrations.

Integrations (based on webhooks) connect the tools you already use with Rocket.Chat for a simplified workflow and improved team communication.

This post covers ten of the best integrations created by the Rocket.Chat team and community.

GitHub

GitHub makes it easy to store Git projects, track changes and stay organized when working on individual or team projects.

It’s been used for projects as diverse as creating a repository for Gregorian Chants to storing the history of U.S. congressional districts to a popular open source team chat solution.

With the GitHub integration for Rocket.Chat you can receive alerts, commit events and make pull requests.

Trello

Another popular collaboration tool, Trello is a virtual whiteboard where teams and individuals can add notes, photos and attachments from other sources to collate what they’re working on in one place.

With the Trello integration you can simplify your workflow with notifications on who has joined, contributed to or completed a project without needing to leave Rocket.Chat.
