I recommend nodebb-plugin-ns-awards. It works well for giving badges.
It can't do anything automatic yet, but I think that might be planned for the future.
I have a client request for the ability for posts made to social media e.g. Twitter & Instagram to be be auto-posted to a NodeBB forum.
Anyone have any thoughts on how this might be possible? Something similar is possible with WordPress and IFFFT.
My initial thought is this:
install nodebb-write-api plugin
connect IFTTT twitter channel to their Maker channel.
trigger a webhook on the NodeBB API via Maker channel
That's one way of doing it. There's a similar plugin that auto posts from RSS feeds: https://github.com/barisusakli/nodebb-plugin-rss
So perhaps you can change the code where it parses an RSS feed to reading the twitter feed instead. Or use an twitter to RSS service like https://twitrss.me/
If you wrote an IFTTT plugin though, that would be pretty cool
