Webhooks: A Beginner's Guide.
Simply put, a webhook is a way for different applications to communicate with each other in real-time. In essence, a webhook is an HTTP callback that occurs when an event happens in one application and triggers a notification to another application.
Webhooks are a crucial part of modern web development because they enable the exchange of data between applications in real-time, allowing businesses to automate their workflows and provide faster, more efficient services to their customers.
To support webhooks in your application, you need to have an endpoint that listens for incoming requests from other applications. This endpoint should be able to parse the incoming data and take the appropriate action based on the event that triggered the webhook.
In summary, webhooks are an essential part of modern web development and allow applications to communicate with each other in real-time. By supporting webhooks in your application, you can automate workflows, improve efficiency, and provide faster, more efficient services to your customers.
