How to receive alerts in Slack when a website changes

Have you ever wanted to avoid opening websites to check for updates, and instead receive them directly in the Slack channel of your choice?

Doing this used to require either a dedicated Slack app for the most common websites/web apps, such as Jira, or for the most adventurous to setup your own scraping infrastructure, and spend your evenings on it to ensure it works.

This guide explains how to setup Slack with Monitoro to receive website changes directly in the Slack channel of your choice.
