WordPress security releases are critical updates that need to be applied to WordPress installs ASAP.
But a WordPress install can take up to 12 hours to detect there is an update available. That's how long your WordPress installs are left vulnerable.
I like to patch my WordPress installs at the earliestI also like to be the one to bring this news to clients / colleagues & then proactively update client WordPress installs, which makes them happy & makes me look good! 😎
So, I built this tool for myself. I get to know about the latest WordPress release before most of the internet. Pretty cool, eh?
I plan to use it to further build a small system which can inform WordPress installs & trigger auto upgrades right away, if this catches up.
Similarly, you can use it to build your systems via web-hooks integration to react when a new WordPress release it out. For a small $5 one-time fee, with enough people, it should pay up for its maintenance.
And if enough people like it, may be I can build this for other platforms as well.
Let's build something! 😄
Q: How does webhook work?
A GET request with a parameter
?version=4.8.2 added to your specified URL would be sent.
Q: How does it work within seconds?
A Node.js micro-service ⚙️ periodically monitors the latest WordPress version and as soon as it detects a new WordPress release, it asynchronously fires away email using Mailgun, push notifications using OneSignal & webhooks request.
Q: Do you plan to add alerts for more software / platforms?
Sure! As soon as I get 100 users 👨💻, I will start adding more platforms. Tell me what you want.
