  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Stories for a Tag trigger
    1. Configure Timer
    2. Optional- Configure Tag
    3. Connect your Dev.to account
  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, source-available 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 story that has a matching tag (e.g., javascript)
Version:0.0.3
Key:dev_to-fresh-stories-by-tag

Dev.to Overview

With the Dev.to API, you can build applications that:

  • Stand out from the crowd on Dev.to by customizing your profile page
  • Build a Dev.to extension that helps other developers be more productive
  • Develop a bot that helps moderation on Dev.to
  • Get notified whenever a new article is published on a certain topic
  • And much more!

Trigger Code

import devTo from "../../dev_to.app.mjs";
import moment from "moment";
import common from "../common.mjs";

export default {
  name: "New Stories for a Tag",
  type: "source",
  description: "Emit new event for each new story that has a matching tag (e.g., javascript)",
  key: "dev_to-fresh-stories-by-tag",
  version: "0.0.3",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    tag: {
      type: "string",
      label: "Tag",
      description: "Tags to watch",
      optional: true,
      default: "",
    },
    devTo,
  },
  dedupe: "greatest",
  async run({ $ }) {
    const data = await this.devTo.getArticles($, {
      params: {
        per_page: 1000,
        top: 1,
        tag: encodeURIComponent(this.tag),
      },
    });

    data.forEach((event) => {
      this.$emit(event, {
        id: event.id,
        ts: moment(event.published_timestamp).valueOf(),
        summary: event.title,
      });
    });
  },
};

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

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

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"}]).
