@marekparticle ,

This is excellent - thank you for publishing.

I think this will be very helpful. I could think of only a few additions:

  • Many folks get tripped up with the naming convention of Webhooks (myself included). They way that multiple web hooks can be triggered with a single call as long as their names start the same can be counterintuitive.
  • Response templates can be a big benefit in reducing the code required to pull out a response code. Perhaps something like this?
  • Finally, it can be easier and more interactive to test Webhooks using a 3rd party tool like Postman. Perhaps some links to this or other tools like it.

Again, great work and a very helpful guide.

This is GREAT feedback! Thank you @chipmc - I will incorporate all of these into this guide or into some spinoff one-sheets linked in the above.

And to the Community - please keep it coming if you have something to suggest!

It was a great read, thank you Marek!

Hey Marek,
one thing I did not see is a way to mock or simulate the receiving end, for instance using a service like https://requestbin.com/ to receive the webhooks, temporarily, to see if what you think you are sending on a webhook is really what is being sent.
Do you think this would help?

Yes! I think that’s a great idea as well!
