Anyone working with Block Kit Builder for Slack?

James McManamey @jamesfmac

I've been working with it consistently for the last few weeks so far it's been pretty good. We've had a few pains integrating it into our workflow. I'm wondering what others experiences have been like:

What (if anything) you've struggled with when using block kit builder?

How is it fitting into your workflow?

    Hey James,

    I have started exploring BlockKit and looking forward to integrating it with my app.
    What kind of app do you have and what challenges are you facing?

      Hey Arpit,

      Our app https://stratejos.ai/ a team coordinator that helps keep their issues updated and the team aligned.

      The annoyance I'm having with block kit is in the design stage. Slack provides a great tool for testing out layouts https://api.slack.com/tools/block-kit-builder? but keeping track of different versions of lots of messages has been painful.

      Would be interested to know if you end up having a similar experience.
