Groupme API
Has anyone tried to implement the Groupme API to receive data posted in a group chat?

I was able to create the code needed to post a message into a group chat, but I'd like to also be able to have no posts pushed to me. 

the code I found in the forum post a message was simple and worked perfectly (thanks)
Http Host.Connect("" 0 0 443)
Host.PostAdd("bot_id" "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx")
Host.PostAdd("text" F"{text}")
str r8
if(!Host.PostFormData("/v3/bots/post" 0 r8 "" 0 0 INTERNET_FLAG_SECURE)) end "failed"

But I can't understand how to make the push work. 

Step 1 of the instructions is simply to send a post with this data to


The code I tried was this:

str r8
str r9
str d1
d1="[''long-polling'']"   ;;inside [] are two single quotes

Http Host.Connect("" 0 0 443)
str headers
lpstr sh="Content-Type: application/json"
if(empty(headers)) headers=sh

Host.PostAdd("channel" "/meta/handshake") 
Host.PostAdd("version" "1.0")
Host.PostAdd("supportedConnectionTypes" F"{d1}")
Host.PostAdd("id" "1")

if(!Host.PostFormData("faye" 0 r8 headers 0 0 INTERNET_FLAG_SECURE r9)) end "failed"
out r8
out r9

The response was this:

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Date: Tue, 05 Jun 2018 02:10:45 GMT
Connection: keep-alive
Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Any help to correctly create this POST would really appreciated. I can probably figure out the remaining steps but not 100% about that  Confused
I was able to get the groupme push working. I was not able to use the Host.PostAdd commands instead I had to use this:

typelib WinHttp {662901FC-6951-4854-9EB2-D9A2570F2B2E} 5.1
WinHttp.WinHttpRequest r._create
r.Open("POST" "")
r.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type" "application/json")

str data=


Not sure why this works but the Host.PostAdd commands did not.
PostFormData can post only HTML form variables but cannot post body data.
Yes, it's a shame but the workaround was easy once I understood the syntax. Thanks for the update.

This should work, but I did not test.

str data=

str r8
str r9

Http Host.Connect("" 0 0 443)

Host.Post("faye" data r8 "Content-Type: application/json" INTERNET_FLAG_SECURE r9)
out r8
out r9

With WinHttp.WinHttpRequest also OK.
