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:Trigger your workflow every N hours, minutes or seconds.
Version:0.0.2
Key:schedule-custom-interval

Schedule Overview

The Schedule app in Pipedream is a powerful tool that allows you to trigger workflows at regular intervals, ranging from every minute to once a year. This enables the automation of repetitive tasks and the scheduling of actions to occur without manual intervention. By leveraging this API, you can execute code, run integrations, and process data on a reliable schedule, all within Pipedream's serverless environment.

Trigger Code

import schedule from "../../schedule.app.mjs";

export default {
  name: "Custom Interval",
  version: "0.0.2",
  key: "schedule-custom-interval",
  type: "source",
  description: "Trigger your workflow every N hours, minutes or seconds.",
  props: {
    schedule,
    cron: {
      propDefinition: [
        schedule,
        "cron",
      ],
    },
  },
};

Action

Version:0.0.1
Key:google_photos-create-album

Google Photos Overview

The Google Photos API allows you to integrate with Google's photo storage and sharing service, enabling you to create powerful automations around photo and album management. You can upload photos, create and manage albums, share photos and albums, and retrieve media items. When combined with Pipedream's ability to connect to hundreds of other apps, you can craft workflows that automate digital asset management, enhance productivity, and sync data across platforms.

Action Code

import app from "../../google_photos.app.mjs";

export default {
  key: "google_photos-create-album",
  version: "0.0.1",
  type: "action",
  name: "Create Album",
  description: "Creates an album. [See the documentation](https://developers.google.com/photos/library/guides/manage-albums#creating-new-album)",

    const resp = await this.app.createAlbum({
      $,
      albumId: this.albumId,
      data: {
        album: {
          title: this.title,

Action Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibrary.readonly.appcreateddatahttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibrary.edit.appcreateddatahttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibraryhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibrary.appendonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibrary.sharinghttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/photoslibrary.readonly
