What are REST Hooks?

REST Hooks itself is not a specification, it is a collection of patterns that treat webhooks like subscriptions. These subscriptions are manipulated via a REST API just like any other resource. That's it. Really.

Stop the polling madness

With most modern REST APIs, polling is the only way to detect changes. But it doesn't have to be. On average, 98.5% of polls are wasted. There is a better way. REST Hooks enable real-time communication and eliminate polling.

Go beyond webhooks

Webhooks are great, but really hard for users to setup. To combat this conundrum, REST Hooks are subscription-based. With REST Hooks, users need do little more than click a button to enable real-time updating.

Peace, love and REST

You already embrace REST. Why re-invent the wheel? REST Hooks are a simple, lightweight extension to what you're already familiar with. Skip the pedantic arguments about standards and implementation details - just use a real solution that works.

The real-time web is here, but REST APIs haven't kept up.

Many major players have already begun standardizing on subscription webhooks. REST Hooks consolidate this momentum and push it to a broader audience.
