What is Webhook
Webhooks are automated calls from example.com to a server. Those calls are triggered when a specific event happens on example.com. For example, if a new user signs up on example.com, the automated call may be configured to ask the server to send out a welcome email.
When to use Webhook?
One common scenario to use Webhook is when your app or platform demands real-time updates, but you don’t want to waste your resources. In this instance, a webhook framework would be beneficial.
