Integrate the Confection API with the Google Calendar API

Setup the Confection API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the Google Calendar API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Confection and Google Calendar remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Connect Confection

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    confection: {
      type: "app",
      app: "confection",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    const data = {
      "key": `${this.confection.$auth.secret_key}`,
    }
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://transmission.confection.io/${this.confection.$auth.account_id}/account/`,
      data,
    })
  },
})

Connect Google Calendar

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    google_calendar: {
      type: "app",
      app: "google_calendar",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://www.googleapis.com/calendar/v3/calendars/primary`,
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.google_calendar.$auth.oauth_access_token}`,
      },
    })
  },
})

Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Late last year (remember last year - sigh) I wrote up a post demonstrating how to integrate Google Calendar into your static web site: "Adding Google Calendar to your JAMStack". In that article, I describe how I used Google's Node libraries to read my event data. While it was mostly painless, authentication was a bit difficult to figure out. A few days I was thinking about this usecase and realized I could probably do it a lot easier making use of Pipedream. How so? Don't forget that Nelify lets you create a build hook. This is a unique URL that when hit with a POST request will trigger a new build. In theory, all I have to do is create a Pipedream workflow that's fired on new events. How is that done?
