  • Dispatching to routes based on the type of repository event.
  • Automatic verification of request signatures.

See the documentation for more details about how the library works, and how to use it.


  • Per-route GitHubKey, so that a single server can handle webhooks with different keys.
  • servant-client and servant-docs instances.
  • Tests.
