    I would also prefer this function/feature.

     

    Slack and Telegram both have these kinds of integrations, and I can run Lambda functions on AWS for free instead of managing a server/container somewhere.

    I would also prefer being able to run bots this way.

    Same, this would be very useful for a number of services, Zapier/IFTTT, etc.

    +1 to this for sure! This would help me a ton as I don't expect messages around the clock to trigger my bot. Using something like AWS Lambda I could save cost quite a bit not having an always running process listening to Discord's websocket API.

    To expand on the suggestion, it would be great being able to select which types of events go to a given webhook (similar to selecting one or multiple permissions in an application for OAuth2). This way I could theoretically have one AWS Lambda function handle one or multiple events.

    +1 This would make life so much better! Would remove the hassle of trying to ensure connection to all servers. Also would allow me to keep costs down and offer something for my users probably completely free!

    Absolute must have.

    No lie, this would honestly make the world a better place, we can stop running idle listeners and save the world ;D <3

    Please this would be so easy, you could even have this be client side, but I would prefer clients not reaching directly out to my webhooks with credentials :P

    I have a small school club and we're spending ~$14-28/m on heroku to run a staging and production environment that could be ran on a free tier on GCP or AWS. I know heroku is an extreme case, but it's also a reality.

    There's no reason to have idle bots when we could have outgoing webhooks.

    +1 on this feature, it would be great to have this as idle bots, in my opinion, are wasted computing real estate (especially when they're infrequently invoked)
