Simple Github -> Discord webhook

Step 1 - Make a Discord Webhook

  1. Find the Discord channel in which you would like to send commits and other updates

  2. In the settings for that channel, find the Webhooks option and create a new webhook. Note: Do NOT give this URL out to the public. Anyone or service can post messages to this channel, without even needing to be in the server. Keep it safe! WebhookDiscord

Step 2 - Set up the webhook on Github

  1. Navigate to your repository on Github, and open the Settings Settings

  2. Select Add Webhook Add

  3. Paste in the webhook url and append /github to the end. Select "Send me everything", set the type to application/json, and then Add Webhook WebhookSettings

  4. Test it by updating something or starring the repository! If it works, you're all set! Star

Is it possible to send the whole commit message rather then the first few words?


Displaying the name of the target being build would be nice too (I have 4 .yml workflows and they all just display "build success on master").

I've found a solution, if there's still X's on your webhook, just straight up delete that and create a new one and Make sure to add /github at the discord webhook after you pasted it, hope this helps!

This works. This is the only thing that works.

Add the /github at the end of the Webhook URL.

I'm trying to implement the same. But it is more specific. I looked at the GitHub events, they are more generic and not action specific.
E.g I want to receive a message only when a PR is merged or a certain comment is added to the PR.
Is there a way yo to customise this behaviour?

Is it possible to disable the pushing feature for private repos?

Hello all past and future!

I made a Discord bot to make this process a bit easier: GitHub Bot for Discord.

Just add the bot to your Discord server and use /github commands to create/delete subscriptions to various GitHub repo events. It uses the minimum permissions needed and should help make this process easier! ✅
