Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source 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

Trigger Code

const todoist = require("../../todoist.app.js");
const common = require("../common-project.js");

module.exports = {
  ...common,
  key: "todoist-sync-resources",
  name: "Sync Resources",
  description: "Emit updates for your selected resources",
  version: "0.0.1",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    includeResourceTypes: { propDefinition: [todoist, "includeResourceTypes"] },
  },
  async run(event) {
    let emitCount = 0;

    const syncResult = await this.todoist.syncResources(
      this.db,
      this.includeResourceTypes
    );

    for (const property in syncResult) {
      if (Array.isArray(syncResult[property])) {
        syncResult[property].forEach((element) => {
          let data = {};
          data.resource = property;
          data.data = element;
          this.$emit(data, {
            summary: property,
          });
          emitCount++;
        });
      }
    }

    console.log(`Emitted ${emitCount} events.`);
  },

Trigger Authentication

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

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