|Ask HN: I wrote a Slack compatible server. Can I open source it?|

|I had to implement a chat server for a project I’m working on and since I had never done this before, I used Slack’s documentation as a roadmap and ended up re-implementing pretty much their whole API (I went a bit overboard I know).
I would like to open source this code but was wondering if it was legal for me to do so or would I be infringing on Slack’s IP.
