- when a trello card is due send me a message on Facebook to tell me to stop watching memes.
- when someone opens an issue on GitHub with a specific keyword send me a slack notification.
- when i get an email from someone (like a client) requesting a quote, open a new card in Trello in the prospective clients board
Any chance to get LinkedIn support?
Click to update all the repo star counts in a README.md, and push a new commit.
Is that roughly correct?
Edit: Ahh, not just background integration, but also a greasemonkey like ability to tweak the 3rd party sites as well, right?
The primary features are meant to make API development much better:
- Sign in with X instead of setting up OAuth flows or auth.
- Webhooks are built in, so you don't need a server to catch.
- API docs autocomplete. No need to dig through them.
- It's Serverless. Deploy your add-on on save.
It's inspired by Google Apps Script, the platform that powers all Google Docs add-ons. Hence less like Greasemonkey in that it uses real APIs under the hood, and less like Zapier in that it's for building add-ons instead of event pipelines.
Hmm. I'd gotten that impression because of these excerpts from your site:
"When someone stars your GitHub repo, automatically send them a thank you email"
"Blockspring Scripts makes it easy to sync data, build alerts, reports, integrations, and 'if x then y' workflows for the products you use every day"

UPDATE: changed a bit of content on page to reflect this.
If so, might I suggest inboxsdk.com for help with your extension dealing with Gmail.
You're right -- since these apps don't (yet) embed our SDK in to their site, we need to get the current state (eg current page, selected table, etc) from the Chrome Extension. But our goal is to provide entire entire extensibility platform in an embeddable JS snippet, so hopefully that won't be the case long.
Other than our InboxSDK, you could also look into building a gmail addon and having your users install that, but it would be another install in addition to your chrome extension.
Trusting my content is another matter.
