Function(al) Webhooks with Fn by Abhishek Gupta


This post demonstrates how to develop an Fn function that is triggered by a GitHub webhook and posts new release details to Twitter. It covers the general concept, code as well as configuration and deployment of your function.

Once configured and deployed, the serverless function will be invoked in response to a new release in a GitHub repository (thanks to the webhook) and post its details (name, version and URL) to Twitter.

If everything works out well, you should have a tweet similar to this one. Read the complete article here.


Webhooks in general are

“… user-defined HTTP callbacks… usually triggered by some event…the source site makes an HTTP request to the URL configured for the webhook … ”

As mentioned above, the goal is to send out a tweet in response to a new release in a GitHub repository. GitHub provides webhooks for such use cases using which you can tap into it’s events in (near) real-time — these eventsinclude actions like pull requests submitted or edited, a new release published to a repository etc. Read the complete article here.
