Webhooks, Websockets

Webhooks

Webhooks are messages sent from applications based on an action. The message is sent to a predefined URL, and are automated based on the action taken.

Webhooks differ from API because you do not need to request information from the application, it is provided to you.

Matthew explains it extremely well here: https://zapier.com/blog/what-are-webhooks/

Websockets

Websockets are a form of API where a persistent socket is established between the client and the server, and information can be shared between the two parties at any time.

Websockets can be used for realtime updates of data.
