HookPress turns your WordPress-internal hooks into webhooks. Possible uses include generating push notifications or extending WordPress with non-PHP.
Webhooks are a simple paradigm for developing instant notifications and mashups based on simple HTTP requests. With HookPress you can set up webhooks so that a specified URL (a public service or something you set up) is requested when certain WordPress actions occur. Possible uses include generating push notifications or using non-PHP web technology to extend WordPress.A tutorial video is available on WordPress.tv.
To write and host a target script you can of course use your own server but you might also consider Scriptlets. A dead-simple tool which logs any requests thrown at it,
test.php, is included with HookPress as a great way to test requests generated by your webhooks.
