Pipedream looks like it has so many cool and unique uses! Thanks for sharing @tod .

Where is the count data stored? Could you conceivably store the data somewhere else?

I put a counter on my GitHub profile because I was kinda curious about what kind of traffic I would see, but I don't really care to advertise it and make anyone feel bad that they don't have many views, or make it a flexing match of who has more.

I'm in the same boat as you, I would like to see the numbers but I don't want to have it displayed for everyone to see.

On Pipedream, you can save and read state in two ways:

  • On a workflow-level, using $checkpoint
  • On a step-level, using this.$checkpoint

See docs for β€œworkflow state” - docs.pipedream.com/workflows/steps....

You can store the data anywhere - from Google Sheets / Airtable to S3 / Snowflake. That’s the power of an integration platform.
