A quick walkthrough of HostedHooks and steps to getting started

Getting Started

  1. Start by signing up for a new account at https://hostedhooks.com/sign_up.

  2. Once logged in you will be prompted to add the name and email of your Organization or Company. The name will be used when you invite Subscribers to your webhooks. It's best if it is named something recognizable.

  3. Once your account is created you will be presented with the Getting Started page which we will cover here.

To help onboarding we go through the process of automatically setting up a demo instance within your account. This demo instance is comprised of a Demo App, Demo Webhook Event, Demo Subscriber and a Demo Endpoint. These four parts of the required components of a basic HostedHooks webhook account.

We then will provide you with a sample cURL request (an example below) that you can copy and paste into your terminal to send a message via the API to this Demo App and trigger an outgoing Webhook Attempt.

curl -XPOST -H 'Authorization: Bearer asd2sgg2iMh42JWbPNs' -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{
      "note":"this is a test", 
}' 'https://www.hostedhooks.com/api/v1/apps/8f8ad1e0-229b-4773-9756-4292e4486a3f/messages'

Once that cURL request has been properly sent ( you should receive a 200 back ), you can click through to your dashboard and see the request you just sent.
