Overview of Helper Functions

Pipedream provides a set of helper functions that make it easy to manipulate
and work with data in your workflow. You can use these helper functions to:

  • Perform mathematical operations on data
  • Format data
  • Extract data from arrays and objects
  • Convert data from one format to another
  • Manipulate dates and times
  • Generate random data

Here are some examples of what you can build using the Helper Functions API:

  • A calculator that performs mathematical operations on data
  • A formatter that formats data
  • An extractor that extracts data from arrays and objects
  • A converter that converts data from one format to another
  • A date and time manipulator
  • A random data generator

Connect Formatting

export default defineComponent({
  async run({ steps, $ }) {
    const text = ' Hello world! ';
    return text.trim()
