These days, you don't need to constantly worry about your work and whether or not it is taking up too much of your time.
There are several software packages available that can help automate your work, regardless of what industry you may be in.
One such app is Zapier, which is undoubtedly one of the best software packages available on the market. Ask any software developer what they look for in an integration app, and they will tell you that convenience, time-saving capabilities, and cost are the factors most often looked at.
Keeping these factors in mind, let's look at how Indy's range of integration tools, especially Zapier-GitHub, can transform how you manage your work.
What is GitHub?
GitHub is an internet hosting service for software developers that not only hosts software development programs, but Github actions also include:
- Task management
- Create workflow integration details
- Track bugs in the software development process using Git
- Integrate various programs and applications
- Control access to software and software programs
Zapier is one of the top integration tools currently available for GitHub, and looking at its functions, we think it's safe to say that every software developer should be using Zapier for GitHub. You can read more about GitHub, Inc. by visiting their website.
What is Zapier?
Zapier is a software application that can help integrate web applications, automate your work, and simplify role-specific automation by creating “Zaps.”
Zaps are automated workflows that assign one application as a “trigger” to create “actions” in another application. For instance, when a client pays an invoice, Zapier can automatically add that invoice to another application, like Quickbooks, to ensure all your information stays current.
Zaps like these can automate recurring tasks to save you from having to manually update your information across multiple applications.
With over 5,000 applications supported on Zapier, linking your calendar, workstream manager, and even your email is now simplified.
Top 5 Zapier applications for GitHub
Let's take a quick look at the most popular applications by Zapier and how they can be used to manage your work and automate your processes by filtering, formatting, or running open-source software.
1. Schedule by Zapier: Ghost admin
Set your schedules, recurring actions, and more with Schedule by Zapier. Schedules can be set daily, weekly, or monthly. This ghost admin feature can be used for main jobs and is great when working on a new site.
2. Filter by Zapier
Block unnecessary actions by using the Filter by Zapier. Emails, texts, and other processes can distract you from what you are busy with.
Filter by Zapier will help you navigate your streams rather than have the user open a page on another tab or window.

All-in-one communication capabilities reduce the time spent using different applications without needing to open another tab or window.
4. Webhooks by Zapier: API URL
Posting and accepting data from various sources is one of the critical aspects of software development. By allowing only certain data or a specific type of file to be posted, Webhooks ensures that you are using the best data possible.
5. Formatter by Zapier: Ghost theme
Automatically export your data or code to the formats or themes required for your programming. Formatter by Zapier can format any data or source code quickly and easily. Change settings to suit your theme.
