Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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 for each new email in a mailbox
Version:0.0.4
Key:imap-new-email

IMAP Overview

Using Pipedream's IMAP API, developers can automate interactions with their email inbox, enabling serverless workflows that perform actions based on incoming emails. This could include parsing email contents, triggering events upon receiving emails from specific senders, attaching labels, and much more. By leveraging IMAP, Pipedream can act as a bridge between your email and other services, streamlining processes that would otherwise require manual intervention.

Trigger Authentication

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

Below are the required fields to connect your IMAP account to Pipedream:

  • host: Enter the host Pipedream should connect to. Refer to your email provider's IMAP instructions if you aren't sure what to enter.
  • email: Enter the email address you use to sign in to the account you'd like to connect.
  • password: This is the password you use to sign in to your email account. Note: in order to connect a Gmail account, you must use an App Password.
  • port: Specify the port number, either 143 (default) or 993. Refer to your email provider's IMAP instructions if you aren't sure which to use.

For Gmail accounts, refer to these instructions.

Action

SWAPI - Star Wars Overview

The SWAPI - Star Wars API is a treasure trove of structured data from the Star Wars universe. It's a go-to resource for fetching information about planets, spaceships, vehicles, people, films, and species from the iconic franchise. Using Pipedream, you can harness this data to create automations and workflows that trigger based on specific criteria from SWAPI. For instance, you could set up a workflow that notifies you when new data is added, enrich customer profiles with their favorite Star Wars characters, or even use it for trivia games by pulling random facts.

Action Code

const swapi = require("../../swapi.app.js");
const axios = require("axios");

module.exports = {
  key: "swapi-get-film",
  name: "Get Film",
  version: "0.0.13",
  description: "Get a film",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    swapi,
    film: {
      propDefinition: [
        swapi,
        "film",
      ],
    },
  },
  async run() {
    return (await axios({
      url: `https://swapi.dev/api/films/${this.film}`,
    })).data;
  },
};
