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:Emit new event for each new YouTube video posted to a subscribed channel.
Version:0.0.5
Key:youtube_data_api-new-videos-in-subscribed-channels

YouTube (Data API) Overview

There are lots of things you can build using the YouTube API! Here are just a
few examples:

  • A YouTube video player
  • A YouTube search engine
  • A tool to help you find popular videos on YouTube
  • A way to keep track of your favorite YouTube videos
  • A way to find new and interesting YouTube channels to watch

Trigger Code

import youtubeDataApi from "../../youtube_data_api.app.mjs";
import common from "./common.mjs";

/**
 * Uses [YouTube API](https://developers.google.com/youtube/v3/docs) to get the authenticated user's
 * subscriptions with a `totalItemCount` for each. The user's subscriptions are used to get the
 * subscribed-to channels. Then the ID of the 'uploads' playlist in each channel is used to get
 * playlist items of recently uploaded videos. Process is taken roughly from [this stackoverflow
 * comment](https://bit.ly/3lp4uRS).
 *
 * Sequence: Subscriptions -> Channels -> PlaylistItems
 *
 * The YouTube API allows [listing channels](https://bit.ly/3Fh5Hm2) using a comma-separated list of
 * channel IDs, so channels are fetched using a single series of paginated requests. To list
 * playlist items [PlaylistItems](https://bit.ly/2WN7EW2), a separate request must be made for each
 * channel's 'uploads' playlist. To limit the number of requests, playlist items are fetched only
 * for channels (subscriptions) whose [totalItemCount](https://bit.ly/3ldUYAR) is greater than the
 * last recorded `totalItemCount`.

Trigger Authentication

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

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

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube.uploadhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube

Action

Description:Update a single record in a table by Record ID.
Version:1.0.2
Key:airtable-update-record

Airtable Overview

Using the Airtable API, you can build applications that can:

  • Create and manage databases
  • Add, update, and delete records
  • Search for records
  • Sort and filter records
  • Display records in a variety of ways
  • Import and export data

Action Code

import airtable from "../../airtable.app.mjs";
import common from "../common.mjs";
import commonActions from "../../common/actions.mjs";

export default {
  key: "airtable-update-record",
  name: "Update record",
  description: "Update a single record in a table by Record ID.",
  version: "1.0.2",
  type: "action",
  props: {
    ...common.props,
    // eslint-disable-next-line pipedream/props-label,pipedream/props-description
    tableId: {
      ...common.props.tableId,
      reloadProps: true,
    },
    recordId: {
      propDefinition: [
        airtable,
        "recordId",
      ],
    },
  },
  async additionalProps() {
    return commonActions.additionalProps(this);
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    return commonActions.updateRecord(this, $);
  },
};

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

BasebaseIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
TabletableIdstringSelect a value from the drop down menu.
Record IDrecordIdstring

Action Authentication

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

Visit your account settings, copy your API key, and enter it below. If you only need to read data from Airtable, and not modify it, you can generate a read-only API key.
