Webhooks allowed Postmill to notify an external service when an event occurred, so not super-useful for bots.

They were implemented in 2018, went relatively unused, backward compatibility broke, and eventually I decided that + the lack of use wasn't worth the trouble, so I removed them in 2019.

There's a preliminary REST API in Postmill, but it's experimental and lacks a desirable authentication method, and so is disabled on Raddle. I'm not sure I'll ever have the time and energy to complete it, but I hope to at least have authentication in place some time soon so what's already there can be used.

So weird that I thought webhooks were a totally different thing.

I wonder where one might find people who would be able to help with programming. Is there a subreddit for programming in the relevant language?
