Library webhooks

Project status Test Coverage Status Go Report Card GoDoc License

Library webhooks allows for easy receiving and parsing of GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, Docker Hub, Gogs and Azure DevOps Webhook Events


  • Parses the entire payload, not just a few fields.
  • Fields + Schema directly lines up with webhook posted json


  • Currently only accepting json payloads.


Use go get.

go get -u

Then import the package into your own code.

import ""

Usage and Documentation

Please see for detailed usage docs.

package main

import (



const (
	path = "/webhooks"

func main() {
	hook, _ := github.New(github.Options.Secret("MyGitHubSuperSecretSecret...?"))

	http.HandleFunc(path, func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
		payload, err := hook.Parse(r, github.ReleaseEvent, github.PullRequestEvent)
		if err != nil {
			if err == github.ErrEventNotFound {
				// ok event wasn't one of the ones asked to be parsed
		switch payload.(type) {

		case github.ReleasePayload:
			release := payload.(github.ReleasePayload)
			// Do whatever you want from here...
			fmt.Printf("%+v", release)

		case github.PullRequestPayload:
			pullRequest := payload.(github.PullRequestPayload)
			// Do whatever you want from here...
			fmt.Printf("%+v", pullRequest)
	http.ListenAndServe(":3000", nil)
