webhook missing callbacks to detect when messages are posted

The webhooks thing doesn’t seem to provide a way to monitor an activity stream. My idea for a custom webhook integration is to post a GUID to a channel occasionally (because Glip doesn’t have permalink support but does have infinite backlog fulltext search support) but only if there is activity in the channel. With the existing webhook API, I can’t determine from my script if there is activity or not. It’d be pointless for me to post a bunch of GUIDs when nobody’s talking.

How am I supposed to write a webhook integration like this without access to the activity stream?

Perhaps you should use PubNub instead
