Okay so I'm making a project that let's a user query an api using their own input.
I want to create a webhook or websocket system that when a user creates an api query a new websocket connection is made and listens for matches in the query parameters of the api query and when a match is found the webhook or socket sends a message to the server with the matching information.

Is this possible? Is so how should I go about doing it and how could I encapsulate an api query into a websocket connection. I'm just looking for a nudge in the right direction.

What I have tried:

Using AI and Google. I've managed to get some what of an idea what I have no idea where to start in embedding the api query into the websocket connection so that it listens for matches in the api's dataset.

Your question makes no sense. The server should be providing the API clients call. As for the websockets, there server normally keeps an array of connections to clients the server can use to send out-of-band data to the clients. In this case, out-of-band refers to any data the server has to send to clients without the clients requesting it over HTTP.

Hey sorry I was really confused. I can see that it doesn't make any sense. Thank you for your time and patience though!
