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:1.2.6
Key:rss-new-item-in-feed

RSS Overview

The RSS app allows users to automatically fetch and parse updates from web feeds. This functionality is pivotal for staying abreast of content changes or updates from websites, blogs, and news outlets that offer RSS feeds. With Pipedream, you can harness the RSS API to trigger workflows that enable a broad range of automations, like content aggregation, monitoring for specific keywords, notifications, and data synchronization across platforms.

Trigger Code

import rss from "../../app/rss.app.mjs";
import { defineSource } from "@pipedream/types";
import rssCommon from "../common/common.mjs";
export default defineSource({
    ...rssCommon,
    key: "rss-new-item-in-feed",

                "url",
            ],
        },
        publishedAfter: {
            type: "string",
            label: "Published After",
            description: "Emit items published after the specified date in ISO 8601 format .e.g `2022-12-07T12:57:10+07:00`",
            default: new Date(Date.now() - 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000).toISOString(), // default to one day ago
        },
    },
    hooks: {
        async activate() {
            // Try to parse the feed one time to confirm we can fetch and parse.
            // The code will throw any errors to the user.
            await this.rss.fetchAndParseFeed(this.url);
        },
    },
    methods: {
        ...rssCommon.methods,
        generateMeta: function (item) {
            return {
                id: this.rss.itemKey(item),
                summary: item.title,
                ts: Date.now(),

        for (const item of items.reverse()) {
            const publishedAfter = +new Date(this.publishedAfter);
            const ts = this.rss.itemTs(item);
            if (Number.isNaN(publishedAfter) || publishedAfter > ts) {
                continue;
            }
            const meta = this.generateMeta(item);
            this.$emit(item, meta);
        }
    },
});

Version:0.0.16
Key:github-create-issue-comment

GitHub Overview

The GitHub API is a powerful gateway to interaction with GitHub's vast web of data and services, offering a suite of endpoints to manipulate and retrieve information on repositories, pull requests, issues, and more. Harnessing this API on Pipedream, you can orchestrate automated workflows that respond to events in real-time, manage repository data, streamline collaborative processes, and connect GitHub with other services for a more integrated development lifecycle.

Action Code

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

export default {
  key: "github-create-issue-comment",
  name: "Create Issue Comment",
  description: "Create a new comment in a issue. [See docs here](https://docs.github.com/en/rest/issues/comments#create-an-issue-comment)",
  version: "0.0.16",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    github,
    repoFullname: {
      propDefinition: [
        github,
        "repoFullname",
      ],
    },
    issueNumber: {
      label: "Issue Number",
      description: "The number that identifies the issue.",
      type: "integer",
      propDefinition: [
        github,
        "issueNumber",
        (c) => ({
          repoFullname: c.repoFullname,
        }),
      ],
    },
    body: {
      label: "Body",
      description: "The contents of the comment",
      type: "string",
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const response = await this.github.createIssueComment({
      repoFullname: this.repoFullname,
      issueNumber: this.issueNumber,
      data: {
        body: this.body,
      },
    });

    $.export("$summary", "Successfully commented in the issue.");

    return response;
  },
};

Action 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:

repoadmin:orgadmin:public_keyadmin:org_hookgistprojectnotificationsuserwrite:discussionwrite:packagesread:packagesadmin:repo_hook
