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 events on new forks
Version:0.0.4
Key:github-new-fork

Trigger Code

const common = require("../common-webhook.js");

module.exports = {
  ...common,
  key: "github-new-fork",
  name: "New Fork (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new events on new forks",
  version: "0.0.4",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique",
  methods: {
    getEventNames() {
      return [
        "fork",
      ];
    },
    generateMeta(data) {
      const ts = new Date(data.forkee.created_at).getTime();
      return {
        id: data.forkee.id,
        summary: `New Fork: ${data.repository.name} by ${data.sender.login}`,
        ts,
      };
    },
    emitEvent(body) {
      const meta = this.generateMeta(body);
      this.$emit(body, meta);
    },
  },
};

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.
LabelPropTypeDescription
GitHubgithubappThis component uses the GitHub app.
ReporepoFullNamestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
N/Ahttp$.interface.httpThis component uses $.interface.http to generate a unique URL when the component is first instantiated. Each request to the URL will trigger the run() method of the component.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.

Trigger Authentication

GitHub uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your GitHub account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into GitHub and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any GitHub API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
