Since IFTTT's beginnings, we've heard from users who want to build beyond "if this then that." With the launch of Maker on the IFTTT Platform, we're opening access to powerful Applet building tools for free. Makers can now build multiple actions and JavaScript filter code into their Applets, leading to much richer experiences and stories. The IFTTT Platform is actively evolving. We're working on new ways for Makers to collaborate, share feedback, and improve their Applets. Stay tuned for new capabilities throughout the year!

Can someone provide examples of what they would do with this new functionality?

@phostercreative πŸ‘‹! There's tons of new functionality you can bake into Applets now β€”Β it's really up to you. Sign in and check out this page for a few Applet templates to spark your imagination: + Keep up with a user’s Tweets β€”Β When a specific user Tweets, this Applet will send it to your phone during the day (between 8 AM and 10 PM) or save it to Feedly at night. + Post my Instagram photos to other services β€” This Applet posts your new Instagram photos to Facebook and Twitter and archives them to Dropbox. + Say "OK Google, good night" to get ready for bed β€” Saying "OK Google, good night" will activate a LIFX scene and set your Nest Thermostat’s temperature. One of the ways Makers can use filter code in their Applets is if they only want the Applet to work during specific times, cancel specific actions, or adjust how an action may run based on specific criteria. Here's another example: + Turn on my LIFX lights when I enter an area, only after 8pm β€” Your lights will turn on when you're heading to a location, only if the time is after 8pm.

I've been waiting years for this day. Very exciting. I just made an applet with multiple actions! Home automation has just changed significantly.
@ryanmarr woohoo! Keep an eye on how it's working, as your published Applets can now be used by others. The good news is that as you troubleshoot and improve your published Applets, they will update automatically for all users who have them turned on too. πŸ‘ πŸ‘Œ πŸ€™
This. Is. EXCELLENT πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ˜
