Meetup Interactions to Orbit Workspace

Build Status Gem Version Contributor Covenant

Add your Meetup interactions into your Orbit workspace with this community-built integration.

This is a community project. The Orbit team does its best to maintain it and keep it up to date with any recent API changes.

We welcome community contributions to make sure that it stays current.

There are three ways to use this integration. Install package - build and run your own applications. Run the CLI - run on-demand directly from your terminal. Schedule an automation with GitHub - get started in minutes - no coding required

First Time Setup

To set up this integration you will need your Meetup group's URL identifier. See the below table for instructions on where to find it, along with your Orbit API credentials.

Application Credentials

The application requires the following environment variables:

Variable Description More Info
MEETUP_URLNAME Meetup group URL identifier The part of your Meetup group URL immediately after meetup.com, i.e. https://www.meetup.com/meetup-group-example-123/, the URL ID is meetup-group-example-123
ORBIT_API_KEY API key for Orbit Found in Account Settings in your Orbit workspace
ORBIT_WORKSPACE_ID ID for your Orbit workspace Last part of the Orbit workspace URL, i.e. https://app.orbit.love/my-workspace, the ID is my-workspace

Package Usage

Install the package with the following command

$ gem install meetup_orbit

Then, run bundle install from your terminal.

You can instantiate a client by either passing in the required credentials during instantiation or by providing them in your .env file.

Instantiation with credentials:

client = MeetupOrbit::Client.new(
    orbit_api_key: YOUR_API_KEY,
    orbit_workspace_id: YOUR_ORBIT_WORKSPACE_ID,
    meetup_urlname: YOUR_MEETUP_URLNAME

Instantiation with credentials in dotenv file:

client = MeetupOrbit::Client.new

Performing a Historical Import

You may want to perform a one-time historical import to fetch all your previous Meetup interactions and bring them into your Orbit workspace. To do so, instantiate your client with the historical_import flag:

client = MeetupOrbit::Client.new(
  historical_import: true

Fetching New Event RSVPs

Once, you have an instantiated client, you can fetch new Meetup event RSVPs and add them to your Orbit workspace by invoking the #event_rsvps method on the client:


CLI Usage

You can also use this package with the included CLI. To use the CLI pass in the required environment variables on the command line before invoking the CLI.

To check for new event RSVPs:

$ ORBIT_API_KEY=... ORBIT_WORKSPACE_ID=... MEETUP_URLNAME=... bundle exec meetup_orbit --check-rsvps

Add the --historical-import flag to your CLI command to perform a historical import of all your Meetup interactions using the CLI.

GitHub Actions Automation Setup

⚡ You can set up this integration in a matter of minutes using our GitHub Actions template. It will run regularly to add new activities to your Orbit workspace. All you need is a GitHub account.

See our guide for setting up this automation
