Overview of Puppeteer

Puppeteer is a Node.js library which provides a high-level API to control Chrome/Chromium over the DevTools Protocol. Puppeteer runs in headless mode on Chromium on Pipedream.

Using Puppeteer you can perform tasks including:

  • Capture Screenshots: Convert webpages into images.
  • Processing PDFs: parse and scan PDFs.
  • Web Scraping: Extract data from websites.
  • UI/UX Testing: Verify user interface and experience.
  • Integration with Test Frameworks: Combine with testing frameworks.
  • Task Automation: Automate web-related tasks like form filling.
  • Functional Testing: Automate user interactions to test web application functionality.
  • Regression Testing: Ensure new code changes don't introduce bugs.

Overview of Google Sheets

The Google Sheets API allows for the creation, reading, updating, and deletion of data within Google Sheets, enabling a robust platform for spreadsheet management and data manipulation. Through Pipedream, you can craft serverless workflows that respond to various triggers, such as webhook events, emails, or scheduled times, to interact with Google Sheets. This synergy can automate reporting, synchronize data across applications, manage inventory, track leads in a CRM, or even conduct survey analysis by updating and retrieving sheet data on the fly.

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.
