Testing a Webhook with Localhost Endpoint using ngrok

Does anyone know if it’s possible to test a Webhook with an endpoint running on localhost? I’m assuming that the sanity server is the one that actually calls the webhook so testing on localhost wouldn’t work?

Looks like localhost isn’t allowed as a hook url. Makes sense, but that means I have to have an endpoint already deployed before I can test

You could use ngrok to tunnel to your local endpoint

For what it’s worth, I got a quick serverless function deployed to netlify and that worked as well but ngrok will be super useful for testing this giong forward
