Overview of Discord Bot

The Pipedream Discord app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Discord API. When you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your guilds, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Discord actions, or write your own code against the Discord API.

Getting Started

To use the Discord Bot integration, you'll need to create a Discord bot and add that bot to your server(s). Watch the 4 minute video below for a short tutorial:

  1. Create a new Discord Developer Application
  2. Within your new application, create a Bot
  3. Define the permissions you'd like the bot to have access to
  4. Open the OAuth URL generator tool under the OAuth2 menu
  5. Select the bot auth scope
  6. Copy and paste the URL into a new window
  7. Accept the permissions to install the bot on your server

Not sure if you need to use the Discord or the Discord Bot integration for your workflow? Here's are the general similarities and differences:

Discord and Discord Bot actions and triggers can both:

  • Listen to events on Discord channels, guilds, etc.
  • Perform actions like sending messages, managing channels, and members

However the Discord integration will perform actions with the official Pipedream Discord bot.

Using the Discord Bot integration will use a custom bot instead, with it's own name and photo.

New Messages in Channel

Create this source here.

This event source emits events each time a new message is delivered to a Discord channel. By default, it emits an event for every message.

When you create this source, you'll be prompted to connect your Discord Bot token (press Connect Account and then New to add your token). The source will use that token to list the guilds / channels that bot has access to.

We use Discord's API to poll for new messages in this channel once a minute, by default, but you can increase this to run up to once every 15 seconds, if you'd like.

The first time this source runs, it fetches up to the last 100 messages sent to your channel and stores the ID of the last message delivered to that channel. The next time the source runs, it polls your channel for messages sent after that ID.

By default, this event source is configured to emit an event for every new message in the channel. For example, if 5 messages are sent to the channel in one minute, the source will emit 5 events, one for each message. You can set the source to batch the events the source collects and emit them as a single event by setting the Emit messages as a single event parameter to true.

Emit messages as a single event

In this example, the source would emit a single event: an array of 5 messages.

Message content is empty or missing

If you've successfully authenticated your Discord Bot to Pipedream, but the incoming message data including content, embeds and attachments are empty; then your bot needs to apply for access to this messaging data.

At the time of writing, Discord only requires bots in 100 or more servers to apply for this access.

You can request for this approval in the Discord Developer Portal.

Overview of Google Sheets

Some examples of things you can build using the Google Sheets API include:

  • A web app that lets users input data into a Google Sheet
  • A script that automatically updates a Google Sheet with data from another
    source
  • A tool that generates graphs and charts from data in a Google Sheet
  • A service that sends data from a Google Sheet to another API or application

Building a Google Sheets Twitter Bot with Pipedream
Building a Google Sheets Twitter Bot with Pipedream
This is something that's been kicking around my head for a week or so and today I thought I'd try it. It ended up taking about 20 minutes total and 10 lines of code, of which 5 are a function I copied and pasted. While what I built is kind of trivial, I'm blown away by how much was done by built-in functions with Pipedream and how little work I had to do myself. In fact, most of my time was spent in setting stuff up outside of Pipedream itself. Alright, so what did I build?
Building a Twitter Scheduling System with Pipedream and Google Sheets
Building a Twitter Scheduling System with Pipedream and Google Sheets
A few months ago, I blogged about how I used Pipedream and Google Sheets to create a Twitter bot. The idea was simple - read a sheet - select a random row - and use that as the source of a new Tweet. I was thinking about this recently and how useful Google Sheets can be as a "light weight CMS" and figured out another interesting use case - Twitter scheduling.
Logging user credit changes using Google Sheets and Pipedream
Logging user credit changes using Google Sheets and Pipedream
One of the nice features SuperSaaS is a credit system which allows end-users to buy credit once and then easily pay for appointments without needing to go through the checkout each time. There are multiple things that can affect a credit balance. Credit purchases and new appointment, obviously, but also refunds due to canceled appointments, and manual credit adjustments by a superuser. This post is a step-by-step tutorial for setting up the logging of user credit information to a Google Sheet using Pipedream, a powerful API integration service.
