How can I test notifications in a dev environment?

Transloadit will contact the specified notify_url when an Assembly is finished. If your development environment is behind a firewall, you will need to use a dynamic DNS service and forward ports to your router so that we can reach your computer.

If your workspace has multiple developers, each one needs to supply a different notify_url. To overwrite the notify_url specified in your Template, use a hidden input field named params in your form to pass a new value.

For more details, see the bottom of Passing variables into a Template.

Another solution is using the community developed node-transloadit-development_notify_url_proxy. This runs on your local machine and polls a (publicly available) Assembly Status every second. When the Assembly completes, it sends a Notification to a configured notifyUrl, which could for instance be http://192.168.1.33:8080.
