This week idea is pretty similar to last week. Last week I was using a similar stack to build up to follow up email automation. This week I use the same stack to interact with an Image Generation API. With no-code & automation combo, it allows an ordinary user to make use of API as well.
I m using the Airtable as the backend again and Integormat to automate the whole process. The image generation part will be using Yong Fook's latest product - Banner Bear. Banner Bear starts as an Image generation service and now has pivot into API model and launch it a few days ago.
You need to design the template first on the Banner Bear side to know the template id and what's the required field for your template. I configure all the fields in Airtable and use Integormat to detect, if the render field is empty, I will make API post to Banner Bear. I must praise that Integormat makes the whole posting to other API as JSON object easy. Other then this I need to provide a webhook URL, this allows Banner Bear to inform once the image generation has completed.
I create another Webhook scenario on Integormat just to received Banner Bear call back, once I get the callback and it will search for the records in Airtable and update the render field. User can just submit a new entry through the Airtable form and getting the image generated within 5 minutes.
Give it a try and feedback are welcome.
Fill up the form - https://airtable.com/shrDwRjgSq3RZwRtl and the image should be generated within 5 minuites interval. https://airtable.com/shrIUdL8yqO5uyEL4/tblUKgOYeedX5A8os?blocks=hide
