Trigger

Description:Emit new event for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server
Version:1.0.3
Key:discord-new-message

Discord Overview

The Discord API interacts seamlessly with Pipedream, empowering you to craft customized automations and workflows for your Discord server. With this powerful integration, you can automate tasks like message posting, user management, and notifications, based on a myriad of triggers and actions from different apps. These automations can enhance the Discord experience for community moderators and members, by synchronizing with external tools, organizing community engagement, and streamlining notifications.

Trigger Code

import discord from "../../discord.app.mjs";
import sampleEmit from "./test-event.mjs";

export default {
  type: "source",
  key: "discord-new-message",
  name: "New Message (Instant)",
  description: "Emit new event for each message posted to one or more channels in a Discord server",
  version: "1.0.3",

  dedupe: "unique",
  props: {
    discord,
    channels: {
      type: "$.discord.channel[]",
      appProp: "discord",
      label: "Channels",
      description: "Select the channel(s) you'd like to be notified for",
    },
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    discordApphook: {
      type: "$.interface.apphook",
      appProp: "discord",
      async eventNames() {
        return this.channels || [];
      },
    },
  },
  async run(event) {
    if (event.guildID != this.discord.$auth.guild_id) {
      return;
    }
    this.$emit(event, {
      id: event.id,
    });
  },
  sampleEmit,
};

Trigger Authentication

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

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

Action

Description:Downloads a file to [your workflow's /tmp directory](https://pipedream.com/docs/code/nodejs/working-with-files/#the-tmp-directory)
Version:0.3.0
Key:helper_functions-download-file-to-tmp

Helper Functions Overview

The Helper Functions app on Pipedream is a set of pre-built functions that streamline common tasks in your workflows. It acts like a Swiss Army knife for developers, providing essential tools such as format conversion, date manipulation, and text processing. By leveraging these functions, you can reduce the boilerplate code needed for routine operations, speeding up the development of intricate automations. The Helper Functions API can be a game changer when it comes to tasks like parsing dates in user-friendly formats, encoding and decoding data, or generating UUIDs, making them more efficient and less error-prone.

Action Code

import helper_functions from "../../helper_functions.app.mjs";
import { axios } from "@pipedream/platform";
import fs from "fs";

export default {
  key: "helper_functions-download-file-to-tmp",
  name: "Download File To /tmp",
  description: "Downloads a file to [your workflow's /tmp directory](https://pipedream.com/docs/code/nodejs/working-with-files/#the-tmp-directory)",
  version: "0.3.0",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    helper_functions,
    url: {
      type: "string",
      label: "Download File URL",
      description: "Enter the URL of the file to download",
    },
    filename: {
      type: "string",
      label: "Target Filename",
      description: "The filename that will be used to save in /tmp",
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const {
      url, filename,
    } = this;

    const resp = await axios($, {
      url,
      responseType: "arraybuffer",
    });

    /**
     * Saves file to /tmp folder and exports file's file name and file path,
     */
    const rawcontent = resp.toString("base64");
    const buffer = Buffer.from(rawcontent, "base64");
    const downloadedFilepath = `/tmp/${filename}`;
    fs.writeFileSync(downloadedFilepath, buffer);

    const filedata = [
      filename,
      downloadedFilepath,
    ];

    return filedata;
  },
};
