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 items from an RSS feed
Version:1.1.1
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.

Discord Bot Overview

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

Action Code

import common from "../../common.mjs";

const { discord } = common.props;

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "discord_bot-add-role",
  name: "Add Role",
  description: "Assign a role to a user. Remember that your bot requires the `MANAGE_ROLES` permission. [See the docs here](https://discord.com/developers/docs/resources/guild#add-guild-member-role)",
  type: "action",
  version: "0.0.7",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    userId: {
      propDefinition: [
        discord,
        "userId",
        ({ guildId }) => ({
          guildId,
        }),
      ],
    },
    roleId: {
      propDefinition: [
        discord,
        "roleId",
        ({
          guildId, userId,
        }) => ({
          guildId,
          userId,
          isAddRole: true,
        }),
      ],
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const response = await this.discord.addGuildMemberRole({
      $,
      guildId: this.guildId,
      userId: this.userId,
      roleId: this.roleId,
    });

    if (!response) {
      return {
        id: this.roleId,
        success: true,
      };
    }

    return response;
  },
};

Action Configuration

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

LabelPropTypeDescription
Discord BotdiscordappThis component uses the Discord Bot app.
GuildguildIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
UseruserIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
RoleroleIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

Action Authentication

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

This app allows you to use the Discord API using your own Discord bot. If you don't want to use a custom bot, and you just need to use the Discord API, exit this screen and use the Discord app, instead.


If you want to use your own Discord bot, but haven't created one yet, see these instructions or watch this video. You'll need to add this bot to your server(s) to make successful API requests.

Once you've created your bot, you'll find the Bot token within the Bot section of your app. Enter that token below.
