Any way to programmatically do something when a topic is posted?

(Ashley L.) #1

I was wondering if there’s a way to programmatically do something (like ping a REST endpoint externally) whenever a topic is posted? My small group uses Slack for ephemeral communication and Discourse for others, so I’d like to set up a way to post a new topic notification to something like a Slack webhook. Similar things could be done for IRC or short messaging services like Twitter.

Does something like this already exist?

That’s one of the triggers I would like to see in an extensibility push, (along with new post) but for now you can look at latest.rss.

There are plenty of webhooks available now
