AppMill - Zapier
Build Zapier apps more quickly and easily.
This is NOT an official Zapier product. It uses Zapier public APIs and their CLI Platform client.
It's a simple editor, meant to help developers get something up quickly, or less-technical developers get a simple codebase to start. If you need more complexity, refer to the official documentation and build an app that way
Here's a list of things you need in order for this app builder to work for you:
- A Zapier account, so I can invite you to use the app.
- Your API needs to accept and return JSON.
- Your API needs to support Basic Auth or some sort of API Key or Token in the header or query string.
After you build your app, you'll have an invitation in your email to use it in Zapier, and it'll be live for 24h, then it'll be deleted.
During that time you'll also receive a link to pay a one-time fee of $49 and download a
.tar.gz file with all the generated code (including the dependencies), so you can simply
zapier register "Name" and
zapier push under your own account with that.
If you need any help customizing your app, I'll be happy to support you with a custom quote (or sometimes for free if it's a small thing).
Basic Zapier Concepts
Zap: A Zap is the link between apps in Zapier. It's a noun, not a verb.
Trigger: A Trigger is the the event that starts a Zap. E.g. "New Ticket" for starting a Zap whenever a New Ticket is created.
Action: An Action is an event a Zap performs. E.g. "Create Ticket" for creating a new ticket after something triggered that Zap.
Create: A Create is a type of Action for a Zap. It implies something is being created or updated.
Search: A Search is a type of Action for a Zap. It allows a Zap to find something specific to use in a later step. E.g. "Find Ticket" for finding a ticket via owner, label, or title.
