  • Octokit

    Ruby toolkit for the GitHub API

    After extracting the GitHub username from the Paddle payload, I would use the octokit gem to add the customer as a read-only collaborator to the repo. Something like this:

  • convertkit-ruby

    A Ruby gem that wraps the ConvertKit API v3

    I would then pass this email address as a second argument to my Ruby script, and then use the ConvertKit API via the convertkit-ruby gem to see if there's an existing entry for that email address, and that the custom field that indicates they purchased Ultimate is filled in.

  • Zigi

    Workflow assistant built for devs & their teams. Automate the mundane part of your day, with live actionable messages for your GitHub & Jira tasks.

  • rubygems

    Library packaging and distribution for Ruby.

    source "" ruby".ruby-version").strip gem "octokit"

  • direnv

    unclutter your .profile

    In the past, this would require copying the secret file (such as .envrc if using direnv) from one computer to the other, and then updating it on both computers each time I renew it. It also requires remembering to back up the gitignored file on an external drive if I ever replace my Macs.

  • op-js

    A JS library powered by the 1Password CLI

    When a customer emails me to request access, all I have to do is copy their username from the email they sent me, then I press ⌃-⌥-⌘-A, and it's done! This automation uses Keyboard Maestro, the GitHub API, and 1Password CLI.
