Description:Emit new comments that mention a specific keyword
Version:0.0.4
Key:hacker_news-new-comments-by-keyword

Hacker News Overview

The Hacker News API on Pipedream allows you to tap into the vibrant pool of stories, comments, and user data from one of tech's favorite forums. By leveraging this API, you can automate the process of extracting data for analysis, tracking mentions of specific topics, or even monitoring the performance of your own submissions. The real power lies in integrating this wealth of information with other services to create custom, automated workflows that save time and keep you informed.

Google Analytics Overview

The Google Analytics API unlocks the power of your analytics data, enabling automated access to custom reports, real-time statistics, and user behavior analysis. With it, you can extract actionable insights, push data to other platforms, and tailor your business strategy with precision. Leveraging Pipedream's serverless platform, these capabilities can be seamlessly integrated into workflows that trigger actions in other apps, send alerts, or even feed data warehouses for deeper analysis.
