Greetings automators!!! I am delighted to be sharing with you the release of the GitHub Webhook Server for BIG-IP v0.2. W00t!

This release was a major re-write that touched almost every line of code. Why? Well, as with many early prototypes, in the first release I just wanted to see if it could be done. And from the experiment I learned a lot about integrating with GitHub, took a lot of notes, and, well, v0.2 is the result of all those findings: a more robust integration that you should totally take a look at yourself!

The two key adds to version 0.2 are:

  • deployment queuing - so we don't DDoS the Control Plane with many concurrent declaration commits at once
  • octokit - in v0.1 I used native HTTP calls to the GitHub API. In v0.2 I switched to the GitHub octokit/rest.js node module, which simplified a lot of code. And simple = robust.

There's a couple other features I snuck in there, which you can see in this demonstration video:

If there are any features you'd like to see, please create a GitHub Issue against the repository, here: https://github.com/npearce/n8-GHE_IaC_WebHook/issues
