What is Hook.Notifier and how does it work ?

Hook.Notifier allows you to collect notifications on your browser or phone just like an email address would for your emails. You can receive specific notifications from a variety of services, even those that don’t normally send notifications.

What you should know about Hook.Notifier:

  • No-code or low-code : Hook.Notifier integration is designed to be simple. We've worked out lots of articles that will allow you to receive notifications from your favorite services without having to code, or with only a few lines to add.
  • Phone and desktop : You can also access your notifications on your computer with the Hook.Notifier web app.
  • Quota : You have a daily notification quota. It is topped up every day at midnight. Each sent notification is debited from your quota. It depends on the plan you subscribed to.
  • Filters & tags : Each tag added to a notification creates a filtering category. You can disable the display of notifications by filtering them and also mute them to no longer receive notifications from that category.
  • Teams : You have the ability to invite users to share notifications. Your notifications, depending on their settings, can be sent to your entire team.
  • iOS app : The iOS app is in development and should arrive in Q1 2023. However, you can use the web app in the meantime.

Let’s get into the hard stuff, the settings for developers.

For a developer, sending a notification via Hook.Notifier is very simple. It is, as the name suggests, a simple call to a webhook. Let’s take the time to examine and understand this call.

Your identifiers

When you register to Hook.Notifier, you will find your identifiers in your account. These keys take the shape of two parameters:

Identifier: 1667324818856 (e.g.)
Key: delicate-breeze (e.g.)

These parameters are and must remain secret, they may however be leaked during experiments. No need to worry, you can regenerate them in your account.

Your hook, url to send notifications

To send a notification, all you have to do is make an http call to our service. You have the choice GET or POST, but we recommend POST to be able to inject extra data inside your notifications. You will find your pre-composed url in your dashboard, here it is:

Hook: https://hooknotifier.com/%_YOUR_IDENTIFIER_%/%_YOUR_KEY_%

Of course, if you call this url like this, our server will return an error because several parameters are mandatory.

The parameters

About the format

Note that the parameters (except the inner data) must be passed as url parameters.
eg: ?object=…&body=…&…
You can use our query builder available at the bottom of the article on the official blog to make it easier for you.

You can find it with better layout in our blog.

Premium feature : You can also add data inside the notification, everything that is passed in body during a POST request will be recorded inside the notification.
