Integrate APIs and develop event-driven workflows for your Ghost site using a Pipedream integration
Pipedream is an integration platform which allows developers to create workflows and makes it easier to integrate your apps, data, and APIs — all with no servers or infrastructure to manage!
Sign up for Pipedream
Create a free Pipedream account, if you haven’t already.
Create a new workflow
Create your workflow in Pipedream:
Workflow code is public by default so the community can discover and copy it. Your workflow execution and event data is private.
Some common examples of workflows for publishers include:
- Add new Ghost members to SendGrid, Hubspot or other apps
- Cross-post Ghost content to Medium, Dev.to, Wordpress & more
- Share new posts on Facebook, Twitter, Buffer & more
Select a trigger
Select a trigger for your workflow (for example, HTTP or Cron):
Connect your Ghost site
Add a new step and search for Ghost:
This will display actions associated with your Ghost publication. You can choose to either Run Node.js code with Ghost or select one of the pre-built actions for performing common API operations.
Once you’ve added a step, press the Connect Account button near the top.
If this is your first time integrating with Pipedream, you’ll be prompted to connect your account using a custom integration.
Within the integration, you will see an Content API Key and an API URL. Copy them into the Pipedream connection settings.
If you’ve already linked a Ghost account, pressing Connect Account will list any existing accounts you’ve linked, so you only need to perform this step once.
That’s it 🎉 You’ve successfully created a Pipedream workflow and connected your Ghost publication.
