How to fire an IFTT Event with a custom http request

Recently the guys from IFTT integrated a new way to trigger events – now you can call the platform with so called “Maker Events”, which are basically customizable http/api requests. Find more details here: iftt.com/maker

The request looks like this: https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/plant_thirsty/with/key/[your key]

“plant_thirsty” is the name of the trigger that i created. If this request is fired it can trigger anything IFTT can do, you even can install the IFTT app on your iOS/Android device and get event notifications.

This is a feature that has been requested by the community since ages, but it is really awesome that it is now available!
