Hi all,

If I don't have a server or I don't want to burden an existing server with a frequently firing webhook, how else can I use and react to webhooks? What are my other options?

Thanks. Does this only open a tunnel to my localhost though? What if I want something running indefinitely in the cloud?

not sure i understand your requirements. if you want it to run indefinitely in the cloud, you should rent your own server from a hosting provider, but i thought you said you didn't want to do that? maybe i misunderstood

you can also run your own server not in the cloud with ngrok (or any other kind of tunneling) on it

Webscript.io or many other "serverless" tools are good for this.
