What is IFTTT?
Let me show you a short description of what IFTTT does and how it's principles work. According to Wikipedia: "IFTTT is a free web-based service that people use to create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets. An applet is triggered by changes that occur within other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest. An applet may send an e-mail message if the user tweets using a hashtag or to copy a photo on Facebook to a user's archive if someone tags a user in a photo IFTTT is an initialism for If This Then That."
What does that mean for FussBot?
FussBot can be used to trigger IFTTT applets. There are several different endpoints (triggers) available which can be used for certain events. Remember the IF THIS THEN THAT principle. Let me give you some examples:
- If a new stream starts, post a message on Twitter
- If somebody subscribes to your channel, post his name to Discord
- If FussBot bans somebody, send me an email with his name and channelid
