Slack

Slack is a channel-based messaging platform. With Slack, people can work together more effectively, connect all their software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work — all within a secure, enterprise-grade environment.

Integrate the Slack API with the Dropbox API

Overview of Slack

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

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

  • Automate posting updates to your team channels
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • And much more!

Overview of Dropbox

The Dropbox API on Pipedream enables you to automate file and folder operations, streamlining workflows that involve storing, syncing, and sharing content. With this API, you can programmatically manage files, set up event-driven triggers based on changes within Dropbox, and leverage Pipedream's capabilities to connect with hundreds of other apps for extended automation scenarios. It's ideal for building custom file management solutions, archiving systems, or collaborative content workflows without writing extensive code.

Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Integrating Location Data into Pipedream Workflows
Over the past few months, I've become somewhat enamored with a new service called Pipedream. Pipedream is yet another serverless solution with a bit of a twist. It makes it easy to build workflows by piecing together various actions like LEGO bricks. These actions are small pieces of programming logic that cover a wide variety of different services. You can connect these actions together along with the ability to write Node code for your own logic.
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
