    IFTTT Alternatives

    An "if this then that" automation service. Think of all the things you could do if you were able to define any task as: when something happens (this) then do something else (that). It’s a basic framework, but one that impacts pretty much anything with a sort of cause and effect property.

    There are several alternatives to IFTTT that provide "if this then that" functionality. Many of them are open source and available locally if you prefer to audit the code that you'll be using to add the convenience and quality of life improvements that task automation can provide.
