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:Emits a specified time before an event starts
Version:0.1.2
Key:google_calendar-event-start

Google Calendar Overview

The Google Calendar API gives developers access to Google Calendar data,
allowing them to create their own applications that can read, write, and update
calendar data. With the API, users can integrate their own calendar
applications with Google Calendar, giving them the ability to manage their
calendars in one place. The API also provides the ability to search for events
and create new events.

Possible applications that could be built using the Google Calendar API
include:

  • A calendar application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to manage their calendars in one place.
  • A calendar application that allows users to search for events and create new
    events.
  • A to-do list application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to see their tasks and events in one place.
  • A reminder application that uses Google Calendar data to remind users of
    upcoming events.

Trigger Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "google_calendar-event-start",
  name: "Event Start",
  description: "Emits a specified time before an event starts",
  version: "0.1.2",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique", // Dedupe events based on the Google Calendar event ID
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    getConfig({
      intervalMs, now,
    }) {
      const timeMin = now.toISOString();
      const timeMax = new Date(now.getTime() + intervalMs).toISOString();
      return {
        calendarId: this.calendarId,
        timeMax,
        timeMin,
        singleEvents: true,
        orderBy: "startTime",
      };
    },
    isRelevant(event, {
      intervalMs, now,
    }) {
      const eventStart = event?.start?.dateTime;
      const start = new Date(eventStart);
      const msFromStart = start.getTime() - now.getTime();
      return eventStart && msFromStart > 0 && msFromStart < intervalMs;
    },
  },
};

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.

Trigger Authentication

Google Calendar uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Calendar account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Calendar 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 Calendar API.

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.eventshttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.settings.readonly

Action

Description:Updates a record if `recordId` is provided or adds a record to a table.
Version:0.0.2
Key:airtable-create-single-record-or-update

Airtable Overview

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Action Code

import airtable from "../../airtable.app.mjs";
import common from "../common.mjs";
import commonActions from "../../common/actions.mjs";

export default {
  key: "airtable-create-single-record-or-update",
  name: "Create single record or update",
  description: "Updates a record if `recordId` is provided or adds a record to a table.",
  version: "0.0.2",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    tableId: {
      ...common.props.tableId,
      reloadProps: true,
    },
    recordId: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "recordId",
      ],
      optional: true,
      description: "Enter a [record ID](https://support.airtable.com/hc/en-us/articles/360051564873-Record-ID) if you want to update an existing record. Leave blank to create a new record.",
    },
    typecast: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "typecast",
      ],
    },
  },
  async additionalProps() {
    return commonActions.additionalProps(this);
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const recordId = this.recordId ?? undefined;
    if (!recordId) {
      return commonActions.createRecord(this, $);
    } else {
      return commonActions.updateRecord(this, $);
    }
  },
};

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
AirtableairtableappThis component uses the Airtable app.
BasebaseIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
TabletableIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Record IDrecordIdstring

Enter a record ID if you want to update an existing record. Leave blank to create a new record.

Typecasttypecastboolean

The Airtable API will perform best-effort automatic data conversion from string values if the typecast parameter is True. Automatic conversion is disabled by default to ensure data integrity, but it may be helpful for integrating with 3rd party data sources.

Action Authentication

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

Visit your account settings, copy your API key, and enter it below. If you only need to read data from Airtable, and not modify it, you can generate a read-only API key.
