Can I post about IFTTT?
- This is not public knowledge yet, please do not write any articles or posts anywhere about IFTTT unless they’re in the private ifttt-beta-only category here on the forums. We would absolutely love it if you wanted to prepare tutorials, builds, or had recipes to release for the scheduled announcement (planning on January 2015). Or just play with the channel and have fun!
What is happening?
Exciting news! When it comes to the new beta features, we’ve all been like:
Well good news! We’re inviting you to test the secret Spark channel on IFTTT! The time to beta test IFTTT is Now (over the next month or so when you have time)!
How do I beta test IFTTT??
1.) If you don’t have an account yet, create one here:
2.) Click on this magic link that lets you use the Spark channel!
3.) Grab a totally normal spark core and create a recipe that uses the Spark channel, create 10, create 100!
4.) Generate feedback, enhancement requests, etc! Post any bugs you find along with steps to reproduce in the IFTTT category (or in this thread, or other ifttt-only threads on the forums, and tag me @Dave, and put IFTTT / feedback / bug / request / etc in the title)
What should I expect?
- When a trigger happens on your core, ifttt should hear about it in
about a minute or so. If realtime stuff isn’t working, it might take
up to 15 minutes.
- PUSH based triggers (core is online/offline, core
publishes an event), should happen fairly immediately / consistently
- PULL based triggers (my variable is, my function returns) will need
to be valid for a long time (over a minute) in order for them to be
caught triggers may create an event every time they’re checked if
they’re valid. e.g: If your “variable is greater than 10” for a few
minutes, you might have a whole bunch of responses from IFTTT.
- To have fun!
