Copy/paste the following into a bash shell:
cat <<EOF > github_status.yaml --- tests: - name: "Github Status" outcomes: expect_status_code: 301 response_redirect: "https://status.github.com/api/status.json" inputs: headers: User-Agent: "Smolder smoke test library" uri: /api/status.json - inputs: headers: User-Agent: "Smolder smoke test library" name: "Github Status ssl" outcomes: response_json_contains: status: good response_max_time_ms: 200 port: 443 protocol: https uri: /api/status.json EOF docker run -v $(pwd)/github_status.yaml:/tmp/smolder.yaml mcameron/smolder status.github.com /tmp/smolder.yaml
usage: smolder [-h] [--force] host TEST_FILE
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:sky-shiny/smolder.git. cd smolder pip install .
What it does
It will run tests defined in your test file against a dns or ip address.
It wraps Kenneth Reitz' requests python library.
It inserts some sane defaults and passes through options from your definition (headers, authentication etc).
It checks the response from the server for expected status-codes/body/header/dpath-json contents and passes or fails the test based on your definition.
Can be used to specify and pass/fail on performance of api response.
A copy/paste curl equivalent of the request is included in the output for convenience.
Easily introduced into a CI/CD deploy pipeline.
Without --force, any API requests that are not a GET will be skipped as a safety mechanism (to ensure you're not overwriting or creating data unconsciously).
