REST Hooks are a lightweight subscription layer on top of your existing REST API.

The real-time web is already here, but REST APIs haven't kept up. Many major players have already standardized upon subscription webhooks. REST Hooks are a way to consolidate that momentum and push it to a broarder audience.

For more information, code examples, libraries, and company profiles check out http://resthooks.org.

How to run locally.

Clone the repo and hop into the correct directory.

git clone git@github.com:zapier/resthooks.git && cd resthooks

Next, you'll want to make a virtual environment (we recommend using virtualenvwrapper but you could skip this) and then install dependencies:

mkvirtualenv resthooks
pip install -r requirements.txt

Now you can run the server!

foreman run web
# or
python resthooks.py
