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:Emits a specified time before an event starts
Version:0.1.2
Key:google_calendar-event-start

Google Calendar Overview

The Google Calendar API gives developers access to Google Calendar data,
allowing them to create their own applications that can read, write, and update
calendar data. With the API, users can integrate their own calendar
applications with Google Calendar, giving them the ability to manage their
calendars in one place. The API also provides the ability to search for events
and create new events.

Possible applications that could be built using the Google Calendar API
include:

  • A calendar application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to manage their calendars in one place.
  • A calendar application that allows users to search for events and create new
    events.
  • A to-do list application that integrates with Google Calendar, allowing users
    to see their tasks and events in one place.
  • A reminder application that uses Google Calendar data to remind users of
    upcoming events.

Trigger Code

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

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "google_calendar-event-start",
  name: "Event Start",
  description: "Emits a specified time before an event starts",
  version: "0.1.2",
  type: "source",
  dedupe: "unique", // Dedupe events based on the Google Calendar event ID
  methods: {
    ...common.methods,
    getConfig({
      intervalMs, now,
    }) {
      const timeMin = now.toISOString();
      const timeMax = new Date(now.getTime() + intervalMs).toISOString();
      return {
        calendarId: this.calendarId,
        timeMax,
        timeMin,
        singleEvents: true,
        orderBy: "startTime",
      };
    },
    isRelevant(event, {
      intervalMs, now,
    }) {
      const eventStart = event?.start?.dateTime;
      const start = new Date(eventStart);
      const msFromStart = start.getTime() - now.getTime();
      return eventStart && msFromStart > 0 && msFromStart < intervalMs;
    },
  },
};

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

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.eventshttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/calendar.settings.readonly

Action

Description:Send a simple or structured message (using embeds) to a Discord channel
Version:0.3.1
Key:discord_webhook-send-message-advanced

Discord Webhook Overview

With Discord's Webhook API, you can create applications that send messages to
Discord channels automatically. For example, you could create a bot that sends
a message to a channel every time a new blog post is published, or a message to
a channel when someone joins your Discord server.

Here are some ideas for what you could build using the Discord Webhook API:

  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when a new blog post is published
  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when someone joins your Discord
    server
  • A bot that sends a message to a channel when a new product is added to your
    online store

Action Code

import common from "../send-message-common.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  key: "discord_webhook-send-message-advanced",
  name: "Send Message (Advanced)",
  description: "Send a simple or structured message (using embeds) to a Discord channel",

    },
    embeds: {
      propDefinition: [

      ],
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const {
      message,
      avatarURL,
      threadID,
      username,
      includeSentViaPipedream,
      embeds,
    } = this;

    if (!message && !embeds) {
      throw new Error("This action requires at least 1 message OR embeds object. Please enter one or the other above.");
    }

    try {
      // No interesting data is returned from Discord
      await this.discordWebhook.sendMessage({
        avatarURL,
        threadID,
        username,
        embeds,
        content: includeSentViaPipedream
          ? this.appendPipedreamText(message ?? "")
          : message,
      });
      $.export("$summary", "Message sent successfully");
    } catch (err) {
      const unsentMessage = this.getUserInputProps();
      $.export("unsent", unsentMessage);
      throw err;
    }
  },
};

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
Discord WebhookdiscordWebhookappThis component uses the Discord Webhook app.
Messagemessagestring

Enter a simple message up to 2000 characters. This is the most commonly used field. However, it's optional if you pass embed content.

Thread IDthreadIDstring

If provided, the message will be posted to this thread

Usernameusernamestring

Overrides the current username of the webhook

Avatar URLavatarURLstring

If used, it overrides the default avatar of the webhook. Note: Consecutive posts by the same username within 10 minutes of each other will not display updated avatar.

Include link to workflowincludeSentViaPipedreamboolean

Defaults to true, includes a link to this workflow at the end of your Discord message.

Embedsembedsany

Optionally pass an array of embed objects. E.g., {{ [{"description":"Use markdown including *Italic* **bold** __underline__ ~~strikeout~~ [hyperlink](https://google.com) `code`"}] }}. To pass data from another step, enter a reference using double curly brackets (e.g., {{steps.mydata.$return_value}}).
Tip: Construct the embeds array in a Node.js code step, return it, and then pass the return value to this step.
