  # This is a sample workflow, feel free to replace it with your source code
  # This workflow does the following:
  # - reads current time and date information from an external API and stores
  #   the response in currentTime variable
  # - retrieves a list of Wikipedia articles related to the day of the week
  #   from currentTime
  # - returns the list of articles as an output of the workflow
  # FYI, In terraform you need to escape the $$ or it will cause errors.

  - getCurrentTime:
      call: http.get
      result: currentTime
  - readWikipedia:
      call: http.get
              action: opensearch
              search: $${currentTime.body.dayOfWeek}
      result: wikiResult
  - returnOutput:
      return: $${wikiResult.body[1]}
