Looks really cool. In the past I've had to code up and deploy simple, single-purpose Ruby or Meteor apps to interface between two services, this looks like it could replace them pretty well.
Hoist hunted 2 years has pivoted to a microservice platform that talks to API's. Trigger code when events happen in your favorite web services. Seamlessly connect to your favorite data sources and Hoist will watch them in the background. When something happens in your data sources, Hoist runs an event. You choose which events you want watch by selecting them from the 'trigger' menu.
@kwdinc Hi Kevin, Thanks for submitting us on Product Hunt. I’m Jamie the CEO of Hoist. We’ve recently launched the platform into Open Beta so we’d love as much feedback from people as possible. Sign up have a go and be sure to tell us what you think!
I did an internship with them last summer, and can personally vouch for the quality of their product. Super professional and dedicated team. If you have any api problems, I highly suggest getting in contact with them :)
This looks really interesting! Seems like a happy marriage between IFTTT and Amazon Lambda. What triggers do you support currently out of the box? I guess adding new triggers as a user would be done using webhooks?
@akupila We currently support triggers from Github, Twitter, Slack, Highrise and Xero and let you read and write from a few other data sources. Data sources can either be added via webhooks or by creating a connector - our framework for data sources is open source (see the twitter connector here: github.com/hoist/hoist-connector-twitter), but we expect we'll be building most of the popular ones ourselves.
This looks awesome! Looking forward to trying it again ;)
