Running a webhook

I’m working through a tutorial to make an Actions on Google app for my Google Home. I am stuck on the last couple of steps involving Go and ngrok. I have a windows computer and I am unsure of how to do these steps:

  1. We start up the Go application, which exposes the API Server via go run populationapi.go

$ go run populationapi.go

  1. We start ngrok to expose a secure public tunnel on port 9000 via the following command:

$ ngrok http 9000

I don’t know what these commands would be in Windows and should I be trying these commands in the command prompt? I’m stuck so any help would be appreciated. :slight_smile:

Here is a link to the tutorial:

Ngrok is a tool you will have to install if you have not already, there is a Windows distributable for it: which you can find from the downloads section on this site. The site also explains more of what the tool is and how to use it.

If you have installed the Go language and configured your path correctly then you should be all set after getting ngrok.

You do indeed execute those commands from within your command prompt on Windows
