Trigger

Description:Emit a random item from multiple RSS feeds
Version:0.1.1
Key:rss-random-item-in-multiple-feeds

RSS Overview

With the RSS API you have the power to create powerful tools and applications.
RSS is a great way to reliably subscribe to, track and build around your
favorite content sources. Here are some examples of things you can create
using the RSS API:

  • A personal news website to syndicate articles from multiple sources.
  • A custom feed reader to deliver timely notifications of updates and news.
  • A live editorial dashboard to track news, trends and public sentiment.
  • An automated “report bot” to aggregate and report on news topics.
  • A competitor tracking tool to stay on top of industry news.
  • A custom RSS-based search engine or RSS-supported deep learning engine.
  • A live events feed to notify users and followers of new developments.

Trigger Code

import rss from "../../app/rss.app.mjs";
import { defineSource } from "@pipedream/types";
import rssCommon from "../common/common.mjs";
export default defineSource({
    ...rssCommon,
    key: "rss-random-item-in-multiple-feeds",
    name: "Random item from multiple RSS feeds",
    type: "source",
    description: "Emit a random item from multiple RSS feeds",
    version: "0.1.1",
    props: {
        ...rssCommon.props,
        urls: {
            propDefinition: [
                rss,
                "urls",
            ],
        },
    },
    dedupe: "unique",
    hooks: {
        async activate() {
            // Try to parse the feed one time to confirm we can fetch and parse.
            // The code will throw any errors to the user.
            for (const url of this.urls) {
                await this.rss.fetchAndParseFeed(url);
            }
        },
    },
    async run() {
        const items = [];
        for (const url of this.urls) {
            const feedItems = await this.rss.fetchAndParseFeed(url);
            items.push(...feedItems);
        }
        const item = items[Math.floor(Math.random() * items.length)];
        const meta = this.generateMeta(item);
        this.$emit(item, meta);
    },
});

Action

Description:Send a simple message to a Discord channel
Version:0.3.1
Key:discord_webhook-send-message

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",
  name: "Send Message",
  description: "Send a simple message to a Discord channel",
  version: "0.3.1",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const {
      message,
      avatarURL,
      threadID,
      username,
      includeSentViaPipedream,
    } = this;

    try {
      // No interesting data is returned from Discord
      await this.discordWebhook.sendMessage({
        avatarURL,
        threadID,
        username,
        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.

Action Authentication

Discord Webhook uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Discord Webhook account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Discord Webhook 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 Webhook API.

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