EasyHook

An easy way to implement WebHooks

This project is an attempt to help our fellow developers to implement webhooks in their projects. The idea is to simply call instantiate the object and shoot a webhook to wherever you want to. This is a simple project that I came up with when I was tired and not thinking super straight, so I am sure you'll find issues, but if so, please contribute to the project! We want to make it better!

Note: The project currently accepts only POST HTTP Requests

Usage

To get started hooking everything, you need to include/install the package in your project, you can do that by running the following code in your Package Manager Console:

PM> Install-Package EasyWebHook

Note: You can get more information here

Once installed, you are ready to roll. You now need to instantiate some objects to have it working nicely.

Settings

You'll first need to set the settings of how your webhooks should work, you can do that by having an instance of EasyWebHookSettings, like this:

using Easy.Hook.Helpers;

EasyWebHookSettings hookSettings = new EasyWebHookSettings() 
{ 
  HttpClient = new HttpClient(), 
  UriWebhook = new Uri("https://httpbin.org/post") 
};

Note: You don't need to create a new HttpClient everytime, if you have one already instantiated, just use that one.

EasyWebHook

With the settings object created, we can now create an instance of EasyWebHook, like this:

using Easy.Hook;

EasyWebHook<T> easyHook = new EasyWebHook<T>(hookSettings);

Send a hook

Now that we have the EasyWebHookSettings and the EasyWebHook objects, we can trigger our webhooks! Here's how you can do that:

easyHook.WebHook.Send(webhookEvent);

Note: The Send Method returns a Task therefore, it is awaitable if needed. To have the response just do this:

var result = await easyHook.WebHook.Send(webhookEvent);

Example

using Easy.Hook;
using Easy.Hook.Helpers;
using HookConsole.Models;
using System;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace HookConsole
{
    public class Program
    {
        static async Task Main(string[] args)
        {
            EasyWebHookSettings hookSettings = new EasyWebHookSettings() { 
                HttpClient = new HttpClient(), 
                UriWebhook = new Uri("https://httpbin.org/post") 
            };
            EasyWebHook<WebhookEvent> easyHook = new EasyWebHook<WebhookEvent>(hookSettings);

            Person person = new Person() {
                Id = 556,
                FirstName = "Henrique", 
                LastName = "Tedeschi", 
                Gender = "Male", 
                DateOfBirth = DateTime.Parse("Jan 1, 1990") 
            };

            WebhookEvent webhookEvent = new WebhookEvent() { 
                UserInitiated = 1, 
                EventId = 10233, 
                Data = person 
            };

            var result = await easyHook.WebHook.Send(webhookEvent);
            // result looks like:
            // Success (bool) = true
            // Content (Newtonsoft.Json.Linq.JObject) = {{"args": { },"data": "{\"EventId\":10233,\"OccurredAt\":\"2021-08-17T21:03:28.8511005-06:00\",\"UserInitiated\":1,\"Data\":{\"Id\":556,\"FirstName\":\"Henrique\",\"LastName\":\"Tedeschi\",\"DateOfBirth\":\"1990-01-01T00:00:00\",\"Gender\":\"Male\"}}","files":{ },"form":{ },"headers":{ "Content-Length":"199","Host":"httpbin.org"},"json":{ "Data":{ "DateOfBirth":"1990-01-01T00:00:00","FirstName":"Henrique","Gender":"Male","Id":556,"LastName":"Tedeschi"},"EventId":10233,"OccurredAt":"2021-08-17T21:03:28.8511005-06:00","UserInitiated":1},"origin":"71.199.xx.xxx","url":"https://httpbin.org/post"}};
            // HttpResponseMessage (HttpResponseMessage) = {StatusCode: 200, ReasonPhrase: 'OK', Version: 1.1, Content: System.Net.Http.HttpConnectionResponseContent, Headers:{Date: Wed, 18 Aug 2021 03:09:23 GMTConnection: keep - aliveServer: gunicorn / 19.9.0Access - Control - Allow - Origin: *Access - Control - Allow - Credentials: trueContent - Type: application / jsonContent - Length: 794}}
            // ResponseDateTime (DateTime) = {8/17/2021 9:09:23 PM}

            Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");
        }
    }
}
