Before you start: Ngrok Tutorial

(Autogenerated transcript)

 Alright, so as we go into the webhooks section of the planetspot, I would like to point out that I actually have a tutorial on how to debug the Dialogflow Python webhook using ngrok and I would like you to first go through this tutorial. Now, I am actually going to go ahead and update a few things in this tutorial. So maybe by the time you take a look at it, it might look a little different. But in any case, you have to take a look at this because it will be much easier for you to follow the lessons which are going to come after this. And while I'm on this page, I'll also mention that I'm going to be using the Python Flask web framework because it's actually it's probably the best tool for teaching webhooks. And even though some people think that Python is a little slow when the speed at which it runs. And the other thing is that I will be using this software tool called ngrok. And what this allows

 you to do, ngrok, what it allows you to do is it allows you to create, turn your the way to think about it as it's as if your the computer where you're running your code, it's as if that's turned into a server, which you can access from the internet. Generally, that's not true. There isn't any way you can type something like HTTP colon slash slash www dot whatever dot com and, you know, get the get access to the development machine that you're working on. But ngrok can simulate that it does it by creating something called a tunnel to your it turns your the way to think about it as it turns your computer into something like a web server. So in any case, this is not a discussion about ngrok either. The point is that if you set up your environment to do this debugging using ngrok, and you can do that by following the tutorial I have here, it will actually be much

 easier for you to follow all the other lessons which are going to come after this.
