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.

you manage your to-do lists and tasks. Here are just a few examples of what you
can build:

  • A to-do list application that allows you to manage your tasks and to-dos in
    one place.
  • A task management tool that helps you keep track of your tasks and to-dos.
  • A tool that helps you prioritize your tasks and to-dos.
  • A tool that helps you track your progress on your tasks and to-dos.

  },
};

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:

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 over the internet
  • A voicemail application that allows you to leave and receive voicemails over
    the internet

  },
  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);
    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,
      body: this.body,
    };

    const resp = await this.twilio.getClient().messages.create(data);
    $.export("$summary", `Successfully sent a new SMS, "${this.twilio.messageToString(resp)}"`);
    return resp;
  },
};

Action Configuration

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.

  1. 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.

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

  3. Visit your Twilio Dashboard. You'll see your Account SID listed near the top. Enter that in the AccountSid field below.
