Pipes Debugging

Now you can debug your pipe executions both live – and after they’ve stopped. This makes pipes many times easier to debug when something fails and gives deep insight into how your pipes behave – and how far they are in processing.

AutoBots

We’re also introducing a brand new robot type – we’ve called it an AutoBot.

AutoBots provides a mapping between any url and your Extractor robots – allowing you to interact with a single AutoBot that then forwards your request to potentially 100s or 1000s of extractor robots defined within. This feature allows you to perform web scraping on a professional level never seen before!

Complex Data Types

We’ve given all field definition interfaces a face lift as well – and introduced the ability to have complex types all over. This means you can now have arrays and objects in your output from your robots – as complex as you’d like. We’ve also added some new step actions to the Extractor robot that further enables you to leverage this new feature.
Additionally we’ve made it possible to use data types as input and / or output for all robot types.

Facebook Pipe Actions

We’ve also launched a new set of pipe actions that allows you to query and interact with the Facebook Graph API – directly from dexi.io ! We support querying places and events based on areas, and several lookups based on their internal Facebook ID’s. This is part of our continued efforts to bring more social data onto the platform – which now includes data from Foursquare, Facebook and Flickr.
