Layabout is deprecated as of January 1st, 2020.


There will be no further support for Layabout, even for security issues. Layabout will likely continue to work as long as as the 1.x family of the slackclient library functions, but it is strongly recommended that you migrate to the 2.x family of slackclient.


Please read the associated blog post that details the rationale for deprecation. TL;DR: The 2.x family of the official slackclient library includes updates that make Layabout obsolete.
