Channel hooks are a unique feature of Awasu that transforms it into an extremely powerful information processing tool. Like plugin channels, they are small scripts (that can be written in any language) that are invoked when things happen on a channel, analyze what happened and then intelligently respond to it.

Below are user-contributed channel hooks available for free download.

MySQL Saves feed content in a MySQL database as it arrives.
Save Channel Feeds Saves copies of a channel's XML feed as it is updated.
Add To Default Workpad Adds all of a Channel's feed items to the Default Workpad.
Email On Channel Error Sends an email if a channel starts getting update errors.
