Command line webhooks, on demand.

Project description

hookee - command line webhooks, on demand

Version Python Versions Coverage Build Docs GitHub License

hookee is a utility that provides command line webhooks, on demand! Dump useful request data to the console, process requests and responses, customize response data, and configure hookee and its routes further in any number of ways through custom plugins.


hookee is available on PyPI and can be installed using pip:

pip install hookee

or conda:

conda install -c conda-forge hookee

That's it! hookee is now available as a Python package is available from the command line.

Basic Usage

hookee makes it easy to get webhooks on the fly right from the console. Simply start it with:

hookee start

With its default configuration, this will start a server on port 8000, open a ngrok tunnel using hookee, and mount a URL at /webhook. Sending any request to the /webhook endpoint will dump the request and response data to the console.

hookee can be configured in a number of ways to quickly and easily tweak request and response data. For example, here we are customizing the response body from /webhook using the --response arg.

hookee --response "<Response>Ok</Response>" --content-type application/xml

To see the ways hookee can be tweaked right from the console, view its documented args and commands like this:

hookee --help


For more advanced usage, including how hookee's default configuration can be changed, extended through plugins, API integrations, and more, see its official documentation is available at
