    3. Select a Table
    4. Configure Typecast
  4. Deploy the workflow

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 event when a new commit is pushed to a branch
Version:0.1.1
Key:gitlab-new-commit

Gitlab Overview

Gitlab API allows developers to access the functionality of Gitlab. With the
Gitlab API, developers can integrate Gitlab with other applications, create
custom applications, or automate tasks.

Some examples of what you can build using the Gitlab API include:

  • Automate tasks such as creating and managing repositories
  • Integrate Gitlab with other applications such as your chat application
  • Create custom applications on top of Gitlab

Trigger Code

import gitlab from "../../gitlab.app.mjs";
import base from "../common/base.mjs";
import { eventTypes } from "../common/hook-events.mjs";

export default {
  ...base,
  key: "gitlab-new-commit",

  version: "0.1.1",

  props: {
    ...base.props,
    refName: {
      propDefinition: [
        gitlab,
        "branch",
        (c) => ({
          projectId: c.projectId,
        }),
      ],
      optional: true,
    },
  },
  hooks: {
    ...base.hooks,
    async activate() {
      await this.activateHook(eventTypes.PUSH_EVENT);
    },
  },
  methods: {
    ...base.methods,
    isEventForThisBranch(branch) {
      return !this.refName || branch === this.refName;
    },
    generateMeta(commit) {
      const {
        id,
        message,
        shortId,
        committedDate,
      } = commit;
      return {
        id,
        summary: `New commit: ${message} (${shortId})`,
        ts: +new Date(committedDate),
      };
    },
    async emitEvent(event) {
      const refName = event.ref.split("refs/heads/").pop();
      if (!this.isEventForThisBranch(refName)) {
        return;
      }

      // Gitlab "push events" are only provisioned with at most
      // 20 commit objects (which also lack information when compared
      // to the Commits API). The amount of new commits is specified
      // in a separate variable called `total_commits_count`, which
      // we'll use to keep track of the commits that we need to emit
      // downstream.
      // See https://gitlab.com/help/user/project/integrations/webhooks#push-events
      const { total_commits_count: totalCommitsCount } = event;
      if (totalCommitsCount <= 0) return;

      const commits = await this.gitlab.listCommits(this.projectId, {
        refName,
        max: Math.min(50, totalCommitsCount),
      });

      // We need to collect all the relevant commits, sort
      // them in reverse order (since the Gitlab API sorts them
      // from most to least recent) and emit an event for each
      // one of them.
      commits.reverse().forEach((commit) => {
        const meta = this.generateMeta(commit);
        this.$emit(commit, 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
GitlabgitlabappThis component uses the Gitlab app.
N/Adb$.service.dbThis component uses $.service.db to maintain state between component invocations.
N/Ahttp$.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.

Branch NamerefNamestringSelect a value from the drop down menu.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Action

Description:Adds a record to a table.
Version:1.0.3
Key:airtable-create-single-record

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

export default {
  key: "airtable-create-single-record",
  name: "Create single record",
  description: "Adds a record to a table.",
  version: "1.0.3",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    tableId: {
      ...common.props.tableId,
      reloadProps: true,
    },
    typecast: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "typecast",
      ],
    },
  },
  async additionalProps() {
    return commonActions.additionalProps(this);
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    return commonActions.createRecord(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.
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.
