in Product Updates

Today we are VERY excited to launch not one… but TWO of our most requested features from our more ‘technical‘ users.

Zapier Integration

We get feature requests all the time (okay, maybe once a month) asking us to ‘integrate with x’ or ‘it would be great if you could y’ and with a small team, it’s just not possible to keep up with API changes and updates (and to be honest we wouldn’t get anything done)

So we started looking at what to integrate as a third party and we narrowed it down to two websites Zapier and IFFT.. We spent a long time looking at the pros and cons of each service including userbase, our current customer’s preference, API docs, ease of integration and then looked that Zapier was free but IFFT wanted to charge us to integrate so Zapier won!

Zapier has thousands of integrations with services and with it, Little Warden becomes much more powerful one of the most common test cases we see is the ability to send notifications directly into Google Sheets, Trello, Asana or other project management tools.

We are currently in the ‘invite only’ stage which means we have to prove to Zapier that we are a real company and people want to use us but login to notification preferences now and give it a go!

Webhook notifications

Another feature requested by our technical users is the ability for us to send a webhook to a URL on any change or notification.

We send a JSON payload with the following schema;

{
  "title": "The URL status check returns a 200 status code",
  "text": "<p>The URL https://www.agenericdomainname.com should return a status code of <strong>200 OK</strong></p><p>Which it does so that's all good!</p>",
  "type": "url-check",
  "status": "all good",
  "url": "https://www.agenericdomainname.com",
  "direct_link": "https://littlewarden.com/sites/<site_id>"
}

 

That is now live with some sample code, you’ll find it under Notification Settings.

We’ve got another bumper update coming in the next week or two so keep subscribed to the blog (and awesome twitter account)

Thanks and have a magical day
