Plugin creation for generic pushing of Atlassian events.

I'm after a plugin that provides generic communication over a set IP/port for when events happen in Atlassian products. For the immediate future, Stash Pull Request creations are what I'm targeting. The end point I'm looking at attaching these events to is though if communication is generic enough, I'd love to see other projects hook into these events outside of Atlassian. Hubot we want to use much the same as HipChat's plugin for stash - where developers are notified of commits, merges, pull requests (created, approved, rejected) and so on. Hubot can then also inform us of new backlog tickets, or when tickets are assigned / moved into progress on our kanban boards via Jira - or when documentation is updated in confluence. I haven't yet been able to find something already developed for a means of generic communication on events in Atlassian products - and sadly - I personally don't have the required skills in Java to make this possible. However, I can coffeescript and indeed to do so with Hubot.

Hi Darren,

This isn't really an answer, but just as some background. In the past plugins for Atlassian products have tended to be specific to a particular purpose, like the HipChat plugin sending specific messages (ie issues created). The main reason is that our ecosystem has largely been Java based, for obvious reasons, and there isn't really anything you can't do in a plugin. Assuming you know Java of course...

What might interest you for the future is Atlassian Connect, formally known as 'Plugins 3'. This allows non-java plugins to interact with our products.

The bad news is that because this is primarly targetting Atlassian OnDemand there isn't any immediate plans to integrate this with Stash. In the short term you may need to develop your own plugin which does what you need, either by sending all events to Hubot, or writing a custom Java plugin.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you.
