Hookdeck Update: November 2023


Article image

At Hookdeck, we've built a platform to support the full software development life cycle of event-driven applications: tools with a great developer experience and a secure, reliable, and scalable infrastructure to help you build, deploy, and observe with confidence.

It's been possible to build the Hookdeck platform thanks to your feedback and support. Please keep the feedback coming!

Here are some of the things we've recently shipped and what to look out for in the near future:

Hookdeck Terraform Provider

We know how important it is to have full control of the platforms that you use. That’s why the Hookdeck API enables you to do everything that the Dashboard can and more. However, Terraform is all but the defacto standard for “infrastructure automation to provision and manage resources in any cloud” via IaC (Infrastructure as Code) config files.

So, we’re pleased to share that we recently released the Hookdeck Terraform Provider.

This first version supports the following resources:

  • Connections
  • Destinations
  • Sources
  • Source Verification
  • Transformations
  • Webhook Registration with 3rd-party providers. For example, Shopify or Stripe.

Check out the Hookdeck Terraform Provider GitHub repo to learn more and get started.

New Source Webhook Provider Signature Verifications

BETA Dashboard Feedback Request

Some of you have already noticed the option to try out the BETA dashboard 🕵️ If you haven't already tried it out, we'd love for you to give it a try and share your feedback.

Things to look out for:

  • 📅 Dates are now shown as timestamps
  • 🗜️ A more compact design
  • 🌗 100% support for dark and light modes
  • 🧠 Configure, Monitor, and Inspect sidebar categories
  • ⚡ Quick access to Sources, Transformation, and Destinations ... and more
