Github link to slack-notifier:

Create a new rake task

vim slack.rake

and paste  the following and make changes with your credentials

require 'slack-notifier'
require File.expand_path('../../../../config/environment', __FILE__)

namespace :slack do
desc "Notify via slack"
task :notify do
notifier = "
user = run_locally { %x{whoami}.strip }
message = "#{user} deployed to #{fetch(:rails_env)}"


Now you can use cap -T command and you will see new tasks will be there and its called slack:notify.
