3rd party integrations of Oh Dear

The Oh Dear API lets you configure everything just about anything in our application. This page lists the 3rd party applications that have been built on top of that API.

CLI Tool

This application allows you to interact with Oh Dear via the CLI. In this blogpost by the maintainer, Owen Voke, you'll learn all the available commands.

Here's what it looks like.

CLI client

Clicksend

This is a web application that can turn the Oh Dear webhooks into ClickSend calls.

You install this tool on one of your own servers and point our webhook destination to that URL. This tool will catch the webhook and in turn talk to the ClickSend API.

CraftCMS

The CraftCMS plugin is a commercial extension to the CraftCMS. It allows you to see the integrated statistics of all our checks.

This is especially useful for our broken links & mixed content feature, as the CMS can offer you a direct edit button to take you to the page that contains the broken elements.

You can find the CraftCMS extension on the plugins page. The plugin is developed by our friends at Webhub.

Here are some screenshots of the plugin.

The bot is written in Laravel (PHP).

Terraform Provider

HashiCorp's Terraform enables you to safely and predictably create, change, and improve infrastructure. It is an open source tool that codifies APIs into declarative configuration files that can be shared amongst team members, treated as code, edited, reviewed, and versioned.

There is a Terraform provider that allows you to automate your monitoring workflow at Oh Dear.

Once configured, you can declare a website to be monitored like this:

resource "ohdear_site" "fnord" {
  team_id = 1337
  url     = "https://site.iwanttomonitor.com"
}

The code is published under the MIT license.

Tideways

Tideways integrated Oh Dear to highlight application downtime within its PHP Profiler. This will allow you to easily correlate downtime events with your application exceptions being thrown.

For more details on the integration please read our introduction blogpost on Tideways & Oh Dear or have a look at the Tideways documentation.
