Trigger

Description:Emit new event when a category budget is overspent
Version:0.0.2
Key:you_need_a_budget-category-overspent

You Need a Budget Overview

The You Need a Budget (YNAB) API provides APIs to interact with YNAB users’
budgets, transactions, and more. With the YNAB API, developers have the ability
to build applications that are tailored to an individual's budget and financial
lifestyle.

Whether you're looking to create an app to assist with budgeting and tracking
expenses, generating reports, or getting a real-time view of an individual's
budget and movements, the YNAB API provides the tools to do it. The YNAB API is
easy to use, secure, and versatile.

Here are some examples of how you can use the YNAB API:

  • Build an application to track expenses and generate reports
  • Monitor the balances of multiple budgets
  • Generate a budget snapshot based on accounts
  • Create custom visualizations and analytics tools
  • Create notifications when specific budget values change
  • Automate budgeting tasks, such as transfers and payments between accounts
  • Create interactive dashboards and track real-time trends
  • Enforce budgeting rules, such as threshold limits or budget goal tracking

Action

Description:Add multiple rows of data to a Google Sheet
Version:0.1.5
Key:google_sheets-add-multiple-rows

Google Sheets Overview

Some examples of things you can build using the Google Sheets API include:

  • A web app that lets users input data into a Google Sheet
  • A script that automatically updates a Google Sheet with data from another
    source
  • A tool that generates graphs and charts from data in a Google Sheet
  • A service that sends data from a Google Sheet to another API or application

Action Code

import googleSheets from "../../google_sheets.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "google_sheets-add-multiple-rows",
  name: "Add Multiple Rows",
  description: "Add multiple rows of data to a Google Sheet",
  version: "0.1.5",

    sheetId: {
      propDefinition: [

        "sheetID",
        (c) => ({
          driveId: googleSheets.methods.getDriveId(c.drive),
        }),
      ],
    },
    sheetName: {
      propDefinition: [
        googleSheets,
        "sheetName",
        (c) => ({
          sheetId: c.sheetId,
        }),
      ],
    },
    rows: {
      propDefinition: [

        "rows",

    },
  },
  async run() {
    let rows = this.rows;

    let inputValidated = true;

    if (!Array.isArray(rows)) {
      rows = JSON.parse(this.rows);
    }

    if (!rows || !rows.length || !Array.isArray(rows)) {
      inputValidated = false;
    } else {
      rows.forEach((row) => { if (!Array.isArray(row)) { inputValidated = false; } });
    }

    // Throw an error if input validation failed
    if (!inputValidated) {
      console.error("Data Submitted:");
      console.error(rows);
      throw new Error("Rows data is not an array of arrays. Please enter an array of arrays in the `Rows` parameter above. If you're trying to send a single rows to Google Sheets, search for the action to add a single row to Sheets or try modifying the code for this step.");
    }

    return await this.googleSheets.addRowsToSheet({
      spreadsheetId: this.sheetId,
      range: this.sheetName,
      rows,
    });
  },

Row Valuesrowsstring

Provide an array of arrays. Each nested array should represent a row, with each element of the nested array representing a cell/column value (e.g., passing [["Foo",1,2],["Bar",3,4]] will insert two rows of data with three columns each). The most common pattern is to reference an array of arrays exported by a previous step (e.g., {{steps.foo.$return_value}}). You may also enter or construct a string that will JSON.parse() to an array of arrays.
