Decorator that pings URLs before and after executing the wrapped obj.

Project description

babis

Updates

Decorator that pings URLs before and after executing the wrapped obj. Useful to monitor cron jobs with services like Dead Man’s Snitch or HealthChecks.io.

Features

  • Pre and After run pings
  • Custom user agent
  • Silent failures
  • Rate limiting

Usage

Ping after successful execution:

@babis.decorator(ping_after='http://healthchecks.io/XXX')
def cron_job():
  pass

Some services support pre and after hooks to measure the running time:

@babis.decorator(ping_before='http://healthchecks.io/XXX', ping_after='http://healthchecks.io/XXX')
def measured_cron_job():
  pass

You can also send a POST instead of the default GET:

@babis.decorator(ping_before='http://healthchecks.io/XXX', method='post')
def cron_job_with_post():
  pass

And if you don’t care if the ping fails, silence the errors:

@babis.decorator(ping_before='http://healthchecks.io/XXX', silent_failures=True)
def cron_job_silent_failure():
  pass

You can also rate limit the number of pings send to play nice with third party services, let’s say to at most 1 call in 5 minutes:

@babis.decorator(ping_after='http://healthchecks.io/XXX', rate='1/5m')
def cron_job_rate_limited():
  pass

or at most 24 calls per day:

@babis.decorator(ping_after='http://healthchecks.io/XXX', rate='24/1d')
def cron_job_rate_limited():
  pass

Note that if you defined both ping_after and ping_before URLs then each call counts for two hits by the rate limiter.
