220,000+ requests scheduled

Run code only when you need to, with two easy steps

1

Schedule a request be made back to your backend with a custom payload at a specific time.

How to schedule a hook
function registerEventReminder(event) {
  return axios({
    method: 'post',
    url: 'https://api.posthook.io/v1/hooks',
    headers: {
      'X-API-Key': process.env.POSTHOOK_API_KEY
    },
    data: {
      path: '/webhooks/ph/event_reminder',
      postAt: event.reminderTime,
      data: {
        eventID: event.ID
      }
    }
  });
}
2

Handle the incoming request from Posthook, replying with a 200 status code on success.

How hooks are fulfilled
const app = require('express')();
const events = require('./events');

// Parse application/json as JSON
app.use(require('body-parser').json());

// Handle event reminders from Posthook
app.post('/webhooks/ph/event_reminder', (request, response) => {
  const hook = request.body;

  // Send out reminders
  events.sendReminders(hook.data.eventID).then(() => {
    response.send(200);
  }).catch(err => {
    response.status(500).json({ error: err.message });
  });
});
