Hey all. Let's use this thread to show off what you're building with Webhook. Also if you have any trouble trying to build something, whether it's Webhook or design related feel free to ask questions.

I decided to go with the obvious and work on a video game/movie review site. Still very early on in the design but so far very impressed with the Webhook and Swig, Im used to everything being such a chore with things like php/codeigniter or groovy/grails.

I moved my blog over to Webhook and have been playing with the design a little at a time: samclarke.me

I'm working on designing a new blog/portfolio site at deagle.io. Got some sweet pseudo-single-page navigation stuff too.

Hey dave and company, just wanted to throw you some thanks for an awesome tool. I used it for a project for my grad school class. I made a tech demo of a collaborative website for educators to use to share ideas for instruction of low vision students. visioncapsite.webhook.org I didn't style it much yet, but the relations widget really helped pull things together. I've coded some stuff with google's app engine before, but as an amateur its challenging. Had fun learning, and look forward to using your service for more serious projects in the future.

Update: The site has been successfully rebuilt in webhook. Been spending the last few weeks making tiny tweaks, adding the search engine and full blown upgrades.
I'm in the process of rebuilding SelectButton.com over to webhook. Have to fix the font issues with Chrome for PC.
You can check out the progress at selectbutton.webhook.org
Hey look, Bluehost is down once again...

I modified the web streamer format to make make tmgtp.com "Too Many Games To Play" A way for me and my friends to get to our backlog of games and do goofy stuff. Still building it up.

I'm building a website with Webhook for "Auberge Lac-Brome", the biggest hotel in Brome Lake, Quebec (38 rooms). The old website was in PHP and is still live at: http://www.aubergequilliams.com.
There is still a bunch of work to do on the new website (add more photos, add a blog, etc.). And I'm also waiting for i18n because I need an English version in addition to the French version of the site.

I'm looking forward to the self-hosted Version - would love to host my sites here in germany

I've been using webhook to work on a pretty big client project.
The Replay Amusement Museum, or just The Replay Museum for short, is a pinball & classic arcade museum that opened in Tarpon Springs, FL this past weekend. I was lucky enough design & develop the museum's website.
This was my first big Webhook project. I've been using webhook for a couple other projects, but nothing quite as public and massive as this site.
I needed a CMS that allowed me to easily create custom content types for my client because the site would need to showcase, in detail, what games were currently in rotation at the museum. In addition to all the meta content attached to each game, we also needed the ability attach statuses to each game to indicate if they were broken, in repair, coming soon, or traded out of rotation. This data allows us to not only tell the users what games are in rotation, but create a maintenance list for our repair man. I thought that was a pretty cool.
The owner emailed me one weekend asking if we could use the games list and add a private page in which his repair guy could check daily to see what was in 'needs repair' status, along with the details of the game and the issue.
Back to development...
I had just started development on Replay using Wordpress, I was maybe a couple days in to the theme building process when I found Webhook. Instantly I knew I had to ditch Wordpress and develop the site on Webhook instead.
I was able to create all my custom content types and fields pretty quickly and showed it to the museum owner who was ecstatic to use Webhook for all its customization ability. From there on, we went in to full on Webhook site development mode.
It was great to use webhook because my client could make cms feature requests and I would deploy them within 5 mins of reading the request. Instead of writing a reply email stating how long it would take to add a feature, I would reply back saying "It's done , check it out"
The museum had its grand opening. It was massive from what I've seen on instagram. I launched the site officially the same weekend.
I am still working on the site. There is still a lot of content we need to fill in and develop, such as manufacturing info, image galleries, and detailed write ups on each game. We are also going to start posting high scores across the game listings.
I am taking a trip to FL next month to see the museum. I'll be coming back with a ton of photos & video to use on the site (I am going to radically change up the homepage).
Thank you, Webhook Team, for building such an amazing web development application. I love it. I am currently building 4 sites with it and I can't wait to make more.

I am building a new website for my marketing agency.
working on getting self hosted running so we can do some more complex stuff.
danny at October 14th, 2014 11:11 — #13
I am building a blog/showcase website for a client (an up and coming music label). It's my 3rd project using webhook, but definitely the most complex and fully built out thus far!
logicalinsanity at January 21st, 2015 12:02 — #15
I'm completely new to webhook a friend just told me about it and I'm coming from a background in .Net development and some Wordpress stuffs. I plan on building an app for people to manage a budget/savings plan! I JUST created the site so it is vanilla, but maybe if someone sees this link later it will have actuall stuff in it xD http://mypiggybank.webhook.org/
jetwes at March 12th, 2015 12:49 — #16
Three new projects just finished. All based on webhook and self hosted !
Have a look (all sites are in german)
Star Media GmbH
Power Phone GmbH
davidmack at July 7th, 2015 19:34 — #17
We made our home page - Portfolio, blog, articles and more
kidgodzilla at July 13th, 2015 14:34 — #18
We created a fairly large site in Webhook (100+ pages and growing) - https://www.bittitan.com/
It involves a few interesting bits. Namely, a reverse proxy (we have an existing API we don't wish to move yet) & a "Quick Nav" for longer webhook forms.
Overall, a very positive experience.
budparr at July 13th, 2015 18:24 — #19
Great site, @kidgodzilla - Question for you. How are you accomplishing https? Using your own servers? And, I notice you're serving images for webhook-uploads instead of using the google image tool. Is that because you're using https?
kidgodzilla at July 13th, 2015 19:35 — #20
We use a reverse-proxy to serve all pages, so HTTPS isn't an issue. This wasn't a Webhook-specific consideration, we had a bunch of APIs tightly-coupled to the domain & moving them would have been a hassle.
We have a mix of image locations. User-generated content uses the google images tool, but a few layout-specific images are just statically-served from an images directory. Logos are served from a legacy CDN.
We actually ended up creating an images type in Webhook, so we could version images, and we create relationships from pages instead of uploading them directly. Then, we add a link to the instructions below the relationship, opening a new tab to upload an image (Although this isn't the "Ember way").
I think we (like others) ended up learning a lot along the way and inventing a lot of structure to scale the site up in Webhook.

Interesting, thanks very much for sharing!
