Parabola

Automations
Last updated on:

Parabola is another game changing automation tool like Zapier and Integromat. It is a drag and drop tool to process data and create an output with it. It’s an insanely powerful tool to be able to use and pull data from files, API’s and databases.

There are some insane real no-code applications built with Parabola. Please see some helpful notes from Maker Mohammad, tutorials from Max Katz and more below.

Below are some of the best no code actual applications created by some insanely talented Makers who launched using Parabola as part of the side project stack.

How might this tool be a fit for you:

  • What used to be done with developing, now you can create complex data transfers with Parabola.
  • "If your incoming data needs a lot of post-processing, Parabola is the best option. The workflows can be triggered by a webhook as well but the webhook option is in beta and only available if you message their support team on the chat option" - Mohammad - (interview below)
  • "I like Parabola because every step in a flow is like a small serverless function or a small code snippet that does something very specific. It’s a visual development tool so you don’t write any code." - Max Katz

How might this tool not be a fit for you:

  • Much more complex to use and adopt like photoshop or Webflow
  • "Parabola doesn't have robust enough HTTP feature to make API calls" - Matt Henderson Maker of Presshunt.co. Matt uses Integromat for this feature. And is something that Zapier doesn't offer. https://twitter.com/msh\_nyc/status/1217120559760203776?s=20

Notes from the Makers:

Mohammed:
What advantage will this stack give you? A complex stack that integrates with Twitter. This stack is unique. Connect with this Maker on twitter to get insights on building with Twitter.
+ If your incoming data needs a lot of post-processing, Parabola is the best option. The workflows can be triggered by a webhook as well but the webhook option is in beta and only available if you message their support team on the chat option.
+ Only 1 workflow runs on the free plan, but there is a hack to run multiple ones, especially if you need to run the workflows recurringly after a certain time. You can create multiple workflows inside the same workflow editor with multiple inputs and outputs and they will all execute at the same time or by the same webhook.
-I wish they allowed at least 3 free workflows.
