What is this ?

"Trigger Happy" is a bus for your internet services

How does it work ?

Trigger Happy enters in a new category of tools which permits to manage the connection between internet services, as a bridge between them, and will act from events triggered:

  • on the web
  • on your own "internet" accounts
Examples :
  • When a news is published on a website, I want it to be stored in my Evernote or Pocket account to be read later, or published it on Twitter, or on my Facebook wall, etc...
  • when I add a note to my Evernote notebooks, I want to send it to my Wallabag account also
  • When a tweet about a specific subject is published, send it to my Pocket/Evernote/Whatever account, etc…
  • When I set a tweet as favourite, save it to my Wallabag instance

All of this is widely inspired by the very great IFTTT service which permits that exchanges.

How is this service born ?

Following setbacks with a service called IFTTT which made unreadable notes (because it did not handle accented characters UTF-8), the decision was made to launch a free alternative.
