We love to create building blocks that fuel user's imaginations. Today we are announcing Post-Commit Web Hooks for Project Hosting on Google Code, to allow web services to receive repository commit notifications. Projects can use this feature to integrate with all kinds of external tools, including continuous build systems, bug trackers, project metrics, and social networks. The notification follows the Web Hooks model, and is delivered as an HTTP POST request containing a JSON commit description.
To help get you started, we've created an example application that performs various tests that are useful for managing documentation. You can find the source code in the contenthooks open source project.
We would love to hear feedback about new and interesting uses of Post-Commit Web Hooks!
