Gitter API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Gitter API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 1000+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

Gitter is a messaging platform developed by British company GitLab. It allows developers to communicate with each other in real-time, and work on code collaboration.

Gitter has an API which developers can use to build applications on top of the platform. Here are some examples of what you can build with the Gitter API:

  • A messaging app for developers to communicate with each other in real-time
  • A code collaboration tool for developers to work on code together
  • A platform for developers to share code snippets and collaborate on code projects

import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform"
export default defineComponent({
  props: {
    gitter: {
      type: "app",
      app: "gitter",
    }
  },
  async run({steps, $}) {
    return await axios($, {
      url: `https://api.gitter.im/v1/user`,
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.gitter.$auth.oauth_access_token}`,
      },
    })
  },
})

Authentication

Gitter uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Gitter account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Gitter and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Gitter API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://gitter.im/login/oauth/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}
  2. accessToken
    POSThttps://gitter.im/login/oauth/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&grant_type=authorization_code&code={{oauth.code}}
