Use the Zapier tokens to create the content you want

Carl Rustung wrote his original post, Zapping Instagram pics to micro.blog on Wed. January 30th, 2019. I wanted my Untappd check-ins automatically posted to my micro.blog. With some trial and error, I was able to tweak his Zap to do it for me.

Here’s how:

  • Set up a new access token for Zapier in your micro.blog account settings.

Set up a new [access token](https://micro.blog/account/apps) for Zapier in your micro.blog account settings.
  • Make a new Zap. Choose Untappd for your Trigger App and trigger the zap on “New Check-In”.
  • Connect your Untappd account.
  • Select a sample post.
  • Add “Webhooks” for your Action step, and select the POST request.

  • Use micro.blog/micropub as the URL and “Form” as the Payload Type
  • Under Data, you’re going to need 4 key-value pairs:
    • h: entry (literally, write “entry”)
    • access_token: [your access token from step 1]
    • content: Use the Zapier tokens to create the content you want. I used the following.

  • Leave the rest of the inputs alone, and click Continue.
  • Click the “Send Test…”-button, and your sample Untappd post should appear on your micro.blog timeline.

You can see examples of this in my beer category. page on micro.blog.
