Below is an example of making a HTTP request to Healthchecks.io from Node.js.
var https = require('https'); https.get("https://hc-ping.com/your-uuid-here");
You can also send pings from a browser environment. Healthchecks.io sets the
Access-Control-Allow-Origin:* CORS header, so cross-domain AJAX requests work.
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest(); xhr.open('GET', 'https://hc-ping.com/your-uuid-here', true); xhr.send(null);
