I saw the other day someone mentioned that it would be great if IFTTT could simply trigger any web hook, so it could directly trigger an Imp.
Well there is a way to do this – it’s a workaround but it does work.
You can use Mailchimp’s http://mandrill.com to set up an email addresswhich it then monitors. When any email arrives at that inbox you can then set Mandrill up to send that email to a web hook as JSON, which of course could be an Imp agent URL, which you could then decode with json_decode.
So, all you need to do is add an email trigger to any IFTTT channel and boom! You’ve just hooked up you’re imp to IFTTT in a hacky workaround!
Hope that helps.
