Implement incoming Webhooks in WordPress

This plugin implements a simple gateway to transform webhook calls into regular XML-RPC calls.

WordPress has a very comprehensive XML-RPC API. This gateway will automatically accept webhook calls and convert them into XML-RPC.

It listen to Webhooks to trigger XML-RPC methods in WordPress.

It provides a simple short /webhook URL for triggering WordPress events.

From then on you can use the well-known and well-documented native WordPress XMLRPC API to respond to webhooks and implement needed features in your plugins and custom functions.

The incoming webhook POST data payload will be transferred as-is to the XML-RPC method. It should be XML for it to work well.

Needs PHP5.

Webhook syntax

If you are using pretty permalinks:

http://[your-site/webhook?method=misc.method

If you are not using permalinks, you need to call the long full url:

http://[your-site/wp-content/plugins/yd-webhook-to-xml-rpc/webhook.php?method=misc.method

replace misc.method with any XML-RPC method, either WordPress built-in, or your own, or from a third-party plugin.

Uses

This gateway has successfully been used to listen to Shopify webhooks to trigger WordPress events (such as upgrade user status when a purchase has been completed).
