You did what?! with Tines

Build something cool in Tines.Fun or serious. Simple or complex.

Tines is endlessly flexible, so we love challenging ourselves and others to create new and unexpected workflows with it. YDWWT is an annual competition where we get to see what our incredible community of builders can create, from practical everyday uses to the more fun and the downright wacky.

✨ The 2023 Winners ✨

This year, we asked for entries in categories covering everything from powerful security use cases, to ones that were just for fun. As always, picking the best of the bunch was a challenge, and we’re so grateful to everyone who entered. All of the winning entries are now in our library so you can explore, edit and use them for yourself.

Grand Prize

macOS Patch Management

Managing software updates for macOS requires careful attention, depending on a user’s privilege level, not to mention their preferred configuration.

Using a Slack bot, they can interact with any cluster and get more visibility about the health of the cluster and easily trigger further commands.
