Trigger

Description:Emit new Dev.to story
Version:0.0.4
Key:dev_to-fresh-stories

Dev.to Overview

With the Dev.to API, you can build applications that:

  • Stand out from the crowd on Dev.to by customizing your profile page
  • Build a Dev.to extension that helps other developers be more productive
  • Develop a bot that helps moderation on Dev.to
  • Get notified whenever a new article is published on a certain topic
  • And much more!

Trigger Code

import devTo from "../../dev_to.app.mjs";

        per_page: 1000,
        top: 1,
      },
    });

    data.forEach((event) => {
      this.$emit(event, {

Twilio Overview

With the Twilio API, you can build telephone applications that make and receive
phone calls, as well astext messaging applications that send and receive text
messages.

Some examples of applications you could build include:

  • A phone call application that allows you to make and receive phone calls over
    the internet
  • A text messaging application that allows you to send and receive text
    messages over the internet
  • A voicemail application that allows you to leave and receive voicemails over
    the internet

Action Code

import { phone } from "phone";
import twilio from "../../twilio.app.mjs";
import { callToString } from "../../common/utils.mjs";

export default {

    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    // Parse the given number into its E.164 equivalent
    // The E.164 phone number will be included in the first element
    // of the array, but the array will be empty if parsing fails.
    // See https://www.npmjs.com/package/phone
    const toParsed = phone(this.to);
    console.log(toParsed);
    if (!toParsed || !toParsed.phoneNumber) {
      throw new Error(`Phone number ${this.to} couldn't be parsed as a valid number.`);
    }

    const data = {
      to: toParsed.phoneNumber,
      from: this.from,
      twiml: `<Response><Say>${this.text}</Say></Response>`,
    };

    const resp = await this.twilio.getClient().calls.create(data);
    $.export("$summary", `Successfully made a new phone call, "${callToString(resp)}"`);
    return resp;

Action Authentication

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

To connect your Twilio account to Pipedream,

First, create an API key in Twilio.

  • There are two types of keys: Master and Standard. You'll need a Master key to interact with certain API endpoints, like /Accounts.
  • If you don't need to interact with those endpoints, you can use a Standard key.

After creating your key, you'll see fields for Sid and Secret. Enter those in the fields below.
