#### Example webhook receiver
If you want to see GitLab's webhooks in action for testing purposes you can use
a simple echo script running in a console session.
Save the following file as `print_http_body.rb`.
```ruby
require 'webrick'
server = WEBrick::HTTPServer.new(Port: ARGV.first)
server.mount_proc '/' do |req, res|
puts req.body
end
trap 'INT' do server.shutdown end
server.start
```
Pick an unused port (e.g. 8000) and start the script: `ruby print_http_body.rb
8000`. Then add your server as a webhook receiver in GitLab as
`http://my.host:8000/`.
When you press 'Test Hook' in GitLab, you should see something like this in the console.
```
