Zapping Untappd Checkins to micro.blog

Publish untappd check-ins to micro.blog

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.
  • 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 you 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.

    
    \{\{110699014__checkin_comment\}\}
    
    * Beer: \{\{110699014__beer__beer_name\}\} (\{\{110699014__beer__beer_style\}\})
    * Brewery: \{\{110699014__brewery__brewery_name\}\} (\{\{110699014__brewery__location__brewery_city\}\}, \{\{110699014__brewery__location__brewery_state\}\}) 
    
    <figure>
      <img src="\{\{110699014__media__items[]photo__photo_img_og\}\}" />
      <figcaption>\{\{110699014__beer__beer_name\}\}</figcaption>
    </figure>
    
    
  • 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.
