Is there any effort under way to get Drupal into IFTTT's list of channels? It would be tremendous for media companies using Drupal to have it available in IFTTT. Wordpress is already there.
Anyway you can always use Rules, to send IFTTT emails: "Send IFTTT an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a hashtag in the subject (ex. #IFTTT) and this Trigger fires. You can optionally add a single file attachment and IFTTT will create a public URL to the file as an Ingredient."
That's hardly the level of simplicity and functionality we'd achieve with a Drupal IFTTT channel. This is yet another modern web service that adds to the advantages of using Wordpress over Drupal. It's really frustrating to be championing Drupal but constantly seeing a lack of integration between Drupal and popular web services.
So propose solution.
The difference, of course, is that the Wordpress channel is for wordpress.com, not wordpress.ORG. The channel reaches out to wordpress.com servers. To achieve something similar for Drupal, you'd need channels for Acquia and/or Pantheon.
not sure if this is relevant to your use-case , but IFTTT has "Maker", anybody can use it , see this - https://www.drupal.org/sandbox/ursuvictor/2753083 - simple Rules integration for D7. Maybe you can help reviewing it here - https://www.drupal.org/node/2753119
