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.

Overview of Slack

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. When 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 Google Calendar

The Google Calendar API gives developers access to Google Calendar data,
allowing them to create their own applications that can read, write, and update
calendar data. With the API, users can integrate their own calendar
applications with Google Calendar, giving them the ability to manage their
calendars in one place. The API also provides the ability to search for events
and create new events.

Possible applications that could be built using the Google Calendar API
include:

  • A calendar application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to manage their calendars in one place.
  • A calendar application that allows users to search for events and create new
    events.
  • A to-do list application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to see their tasks and events in one place.
  • A reminder application that uses Google Calendar data to remind users of
    upcoming events.

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.
Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Adding Google Calendar to Your Jamstack - with Pipedream
Late last year (remember last year - sigh) I wrote up a post demonstrating how to integrate Google Calendar into your static web site: "Adding Google Calendar to your JAMStack". In that article, I describe how I used Google's Node libraries to read my event data. While it was mostly painless, authentication was a bit difficult to figure out. A few days I was thinking about this usecase and realized I could probably do it a lot easier making use of Pipedream. How so? Don't forget that Nelify lets you create a build hook. This is a unique URL that when hit with a POST request will trigger a new build. In theory, all I have to do is create a Pipedream workflow that's fired on new events. How is that done?
