Adding Webhooks in 4 Steps


At Cosmic JS, we get questions every day about adding Webhooks to an application for better team & product management. Cosmic JS is an API-first cloud-based content management platform that allows you to easily integrate a CMS to your deployed or emerging application for content updates. Cosmic JS works by decoupling content from code, allowing you to build applications in your desired language since Cosmic JS can be integrated with any application, regardless of its programming language.

Cosmic JS makes it easy to add Webhooks that trigger a POST request to the endpoint of your choice when there is activity on your bucket. 


Let's insert Webhooks into your web application:


1. Go to your Bucket Dashboard



2. Go to the Webhooks tab



3. Add the Webhooks bucket upgrade - refer to Cosmic JS Pricing for bucket breakdowns




4. Use the Webhooks table to select an event and trigger a POST request to the API endpoint



Now this will post to the endpoint of your choice whenever the event signified occurs. This is great for static websites & great for the build process whenever content is changed. You can send a message on Slack to your team whenever you’ve added a new piece of content for draft review. Cosmic JS builds collaboration between developers & content editors in everything we do, because we work content-first.

In this tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a simple catalog mobile app with Cosmic JS and Ionic Framework.

Next.js is an amazing new addition to the React open-source ecosystem.  It is “a minimalistic framework for universal server-rendered React applications” that makes the process of building these types of applications much faster and easier.  Recently I demoed a new app on the Cosmic JS app page that is built using the Next.js framework.  I’ve built a few React Universal apps from scratch before and I found taking the Next.js route to speed things along quite a bit.  And adding content management capability from Cosmic JS was very intuitive.

There is a powerful trend happening in technology.  It is a shift from confined, installed systems into a more free, micro-services economy.  This can be seen in the consumer space from people choosing to stream music instead of downloading MP3s, choosing to Uber to work rather than drive their personal car and people choosing to order groceries to their door from Amazon instead of going to the grocery store.

We are excited to introduce the all-new Cosmic JS content editor which is a huge improvement over our old editor.  We think you'll agree it makes adding API-powered content to your websites and apps easier and more enjoyable.  Here’s a list of some of the new functionality...

We are excited to announce a big update to our Apps page.
