Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Ghost.org (Content API) trigger and Data Stores action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Author trigger
    1. Connect your Ghost.org (Content API) account
    2. Configure Polling schedule
  3. Configure the Add or update multiple records action
    1. Connect your Data Stores account
    2. Configure Data Store
    3. Configure Data
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit new event for each new author added on a site.
Version:0.0.3
Key:ghost_org_content_api-new-author

Ghost.org (Content API) Overview

Ghost.org provides a content API that enables developers to build various types
of applications and tools. Some example applications that can be built using
the Ghost.org API include:

  • A content management system (CMS) for publishing content
  • A forum or discussion board
  • A blogroll or list of blogs
  • A social media aggregator
  • A news feed or news aggregator
  • An e-commerce store

Trigger Code

import constants from "../../common/constants.mjs";
import common from "../common/timer-based.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  type: "source",
  key: "ghost_org_content_api-new-author",
  name: "New Author",
  description: "Emit new event for each new author added on a site.",
  version: "0.0.3",

      return this.ghostContentApi.getAuthors;
    },
    getResourceFnArgs() {
      return {
        params: {
          limit: constants.DEFAULT_LIMIT,
        },
      };
    },
    getResourceName() {
      return "authors";
    },
    generateMeta(resource) {
      return {
        id: resource.id,
        ts: Date.now(),
        summary: `Author ID ${resource.id}`,
      };
    },
  },
};

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.

Trigger Authentication

Ghost.org (Content API) uses API keys for authentication. When you connect your Ghost.org (Content API) account, Pipedream securely stores the keys so you can easily authenticate to Ghost.org (Content API) APIs in both code and no-code steps.

The Content API Key can be obtained by creating a new Custom Integration under the Integrations screen in Ghost Admin. There are details on connecting to the API in the Client Library page for Content API.

Data Stores Overview

With the Data Stores API, you can build applications that:

  • Store data for later retrieval
  • Retrieve data from a store
  • Update data in a store
  • Delete data from a store

Data StoredataStoredata_store

Select an existing Data Store or create a new one.

Datadataobject

Enter data you'd like to add as key-value pairs, or reference an object from a previous step using a custom expression (e.g., {{steps.data.$return_value}}). Note that any keys that are duplicated will get overwritten with the last value entered (so [{jerry: "constanza", jerry: "seinfeld"}] will get stored as [{jerry: "seinfeld"}]).
