Too Long; Didn't Read

Many services, such as SendGrid, Stripe, Slack, and GitHub use events to send webhooks as part of their API. This allows your application to listen for events and perform actions when they happen. In this article, we'll look at how you can listen for Webhooks using Python (v3+) with the Flask or Django frameworks. We establish a route, tell the service where to send data, and our application sits and waits until a request comes in to that route. Django is more automated than Node.js and Express.js.
