Overview of Placid

The Placid API lets you automate the creation of visual content such as images and videos. With Pipedream, you can trigger workflows using various events, process data, and use the Placid API to dynamically generate marketing materials, social media graphics, personalized images for email campaigns, and more. Leveraging Pipedream's capabilities, you can integrate Placid with other apps to create robust, multi-step automations without writing extensive code.

Overview of Delay

The Delay API allows you to build workflows that wait a specified amount of
time before continuing. This can be useful for rate-limiting actions, or
waiting for an external event to occur.

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

  • A workflow that sends a Slack message after a specified amount of time
  • A workflow that checks for new data from an external API every hour
  • A workflow that backs up a file to Dropbox every day
