This provides a brief tutorial for creating a Drone webhook plugin, using simple shell scripting, to make an http requests during the build pipeline. The below example demonstrates how we might configure a webhook plugin in the Yaml file:
Create a simple shell script that invokes curl using the plugin settings defined in the Yaml, which are passed to the script as environment variables in uppercase and prefixed with
Create a Dockerfile that adds your shell script to the image, and configures the image to execute your shell script as the main entrypoint.
Build and publish your plugin to the Docker registry. Once published your plugin can be shared with the broader Drone community.
$ docker build -t acme/webhook .
$ docker push acme/webhook
Execute your plugin locally from the command line to verify it is working:
$ docker run --rm \
-e PLUGIN_METHOD=post \
-e PLUGIN_URL=http://hook.acme.com \
-e PLUGIN_BODY=hello \
