ifttt.com - If This Then That, also known as IFTTT (pronounced /ɪft/) - is a free web-based service to create chains of simple conditional statements, called applets. These applets can perform a configured action in response to a trigger. Triggers and actions are web services provided by platforms such as Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube, Spotify - and now, Plone sites.

Below are a few examples of IFTTT applets for better understanding:

  • If a video is liked on Youtube, then save the video details in Evernote
  • If a profile picture gets changed on Facebook, then update the same profile picture on Twitter
  • If I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook, then save it to my phone gallery
  • If I receive an email about a new Twitter follower in my Gmail inbox, then tweet the new follower a welcome message
  • If NASA posts a new astronomy picture of the day, then add it to my screensaver gallery.
  • Email me about Top Apps that have become FREE in the Apple App Store.
  • Automatically unmute my Android phone when I get back home.
  • Add a Spotify song from a liked YouTube Video.

collective.ifttt is an addon which enables any Plone site to play in the IFTTT ecosystem by allowing you to create IFTTT applets.

Below are a few examples of using IFTTT with Plone sites.

  • If a news item is published, then tweet about it or post it on Facebook.
  • If an event is published, then add it to my calendar.
  • If new users sign up for an event, then add them to a Slack channel.
  • If content changes, then record who edited it in a Google spreadsheet.


This documentation will teach you how to use collective.ifttt to create IFTTT applets for Plone sites. We’ll start with setting up a Plone RSS feed, which can be used on IFTTT without doing anything special. In the sections after that you will learn how to set up your IFTTT secret key and create IFTTT triggers, so you can create more customized applets.
