n8n integration

Hi all. Recently I came across a pretty cool open-source workflow automation tool called n8n… And it did not have Beeminder :honeybee:.

So I am working a Beeminder integration to send datapoints.

My questions for you are:

  1. The integration requires use of auth tokens. Do you think I should try to support OAuth?
  2. I have kept interface pretty simple, like the Zapier integration. It does not support all the parameters the API supports. ‘timestamp’, ‘requestId’ and ‘daystamp’ are missing. Do you think it’s worth adding?
  3. Unlike Zapier integration, goal names have to be specified. I could add pulling goal names from API. I think it’s a nice-to-have rather than a must. Any thoughts about this?

Let me know if you have any other feedback. :blush:


That would be amazing, yeah. Lots of 3rd-party Beeminder integrations do that.

I would add things one at a time as you find use cases for them.

Agreed, get the simplest possible thing in the hands of users first!

Thanks so much for working on this!
