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 an event for each new record in a table
Version:0.1.1
Key:airtable-new-records

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

Trigger Code

import moment from "moment";
import axios from "axios";

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

export default {
  ...common,
  name: "New Records",
  description: "Emit an event for each new record in a table",
  key: "airtable-new-records",
  version: "0.1.1",
  type: "source",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    tableId: {
      propDefinition: [
        common.props.airtable,
        "tableId",
        ({ baseId }) => ({
          baseId,
        }),
      ],
    },
  },
  async run() {
    const {
      baseId,
      tableId,
      viewId,
    } = this;

    const config = {
      url: `https://api.airtable.com/v0/${encodeURIComponent(baseId)}/${encodeURIComponent(tableId)}`,
      params: {},
      headers: {
        Authorization: `Bearer ${this.airtable.$auth.api_key}`,
      },
    };

    const lastTimestamp = this.db.get("lastTimestamp");
    config.params.filterByFormula = `CREATED_TIME() > "${lastTimestamp}"`;

    const { data } = await axios(config);

    if (!data.records.length) {
      console.log("No new records.");
      return;
    }

    const metadata = {
      baseId,
      tableId,
      viewId,
    };

    let maxTimestamp;
    let recordCount = 0;
    for (const record of data.records) {
      record.metadata = metadata;

      this.$emit(record, {
        ts: moment(record.createdTime).valueOf(),
        summary: JSON.stringify(record.fields),
        id: record.id,
      });
      if (!maxTimestamp || moment(record.createdTime).valueOf() > moment(maxTimestamp).valueOf()) {
        maxTimestamp = record.createdTime;
      }
      recordCount++;
    }
    console.log(`Emitted ${recordCount} new records(s).`);
    this.db.set("lastTimestamp", maxTimestamp);
  },
};

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

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.
