Ghost.org (Content API) Overview

Ghost.org provides a content API that enables developers to build various types
of applications and tools. Some example applications that can be built using
the Ghost.org API include:

  • A content management system (CMS) for publishing content
  • A forum or discussion board
  • A blogroll or list of blogs
  • A social media aggregator
  • A news feed or news aggregator
  • An e-commerce store

Trigger Code

import constants from "../../common/constants.mjs";
import common from "../common/timer-based.mjs";

export default {
  ...common,
  type: "source",
  key: "ghost_org_content_api-new-author",
  name: "New Author",
  description: "Emit new event for each new author added on a site.",
  version: "0.0.3",
  dedupe: "unique",

      return this.ghostContentApi.getAuthors;
    },
    getResourceFnArgs() {
      return {
        params: {
          limit: constants.DEFAULT_LIMIT,
        },

        ts: Date.now(),
        summary: `Author ID ${resource.id}`,
      };
    },
  },
};

Trigger Authentication

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

The Content API Key can be obtained by creating a new Custom Integration under the Integrations screen in Ghost Admin. There are details on connecting to the API in the Client Library page for Content API.

Action

Description:Post a message with an attached file
Version:0.2.1
Key:discord_webhook-send-message-with-file

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 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:
