Integrate the Airtable API with the HTTP / Webhook API

Setup the Airtable API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the HTTP / Webhook API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Airtable and HTTP / Webhook remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Connect Airtable

module.exports = defineComponent({
  props: {
    airtable: {
      type: "app",
      app: "airtable",
    },
    baseId: {
      type: "$.airtable.baseId",
      appProp: "airtable",
    },
    tableId: {
      type: "$.airtable.tableId",
      baseIdProp: "baseId",
    },
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    const Airtable = require('airtable');
    const base = new Airtable({apiKey: this.airtable.$auth.api_key}).base(this.baseId);

    const data = []
    
    await base(this.tableId).select({
      // pass optional config parameters here
    }).eachPage(function page(records, fetchNextPage) {
        // This function (`page`) will get called for each page of records.
        records.forEach(function(record) {
            data.push(record._rawJson)
        });

        // To fetch the next page of records, call `fetchNextPage`.
        // If there are more records, `page` will get called again.
        // If there are no more records, `done` will get called.
        fetchNextPage();
    })

    return data
  },
})

Connect HTTP / Webhook

export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    http: {
      type: "http_request",
      default: {
        method: "GET",
        url: "http://api.open-notify.org/iss-now.json",
      }
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await this.http.execute()
  },
})

I'm going to build a workflow that will search Twitter every hour for a keyword. It will take the results, format them nicely, and then email it.

Normally I don't like to blog about stuff that isn't generally available to all, but as it will be available sometime soon, I decided to go ahead anyway. And I built something really cool I want to share so that's another reason to talk about this now!
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
Webhooks workaround using Slack
Webhooks workaround using Slack
This has been an open item in the Airtable support community for a few years, see "Webhooks for Records 393" and here 39, & here 28, and we are excited to offer a free solution to the community. Here is the high level solution: Based on the transitive property (A=B and B=C, then A=C), Airtable supports Slack Notifications, and Slack supports webhooks, so Airtable supports webhooks! You just have to know how to set it up correctly. With a simple integration via Pipedream into Slack, all Airtable users can now get near real time notifications of all updated fields and values in Airtable.

How I used Pipedream — Created a workflow having an API endpoint to convert Airtable’s Attachment Image URL to Base64 encode image (to push it to another API). Similarly, there could be a million other use-cases.
