A wrapper around curl to continually curl an endpoint over time

Project description

Continually test an endpoint over time, keeping track of http status codes. Similar to ping -c but with curl.

Motivation

When doing deployments or making critical infrastructure changes I like to get the quickest feedback possible on any failures. Rather than wait a minute or so for Pingdom or Pagerduty to go off, I’d like to know within a second or two if health indicators start failing. So I like to continually curl the health endpoint for any services I’m touching to make sure they continue to return 200’s, else let me know right away.

Installation

$ pip install ccurl

Usage

# GET request on www.google.com 10 times
ccurl --url www.google.com --repeat 10

# GET request on www.google.com 100 times with a 2 second sleep between requests
ccurl --url www.google.com --repeat 100 --delay 2

Publishing Updates to PyPi

For the maintainer - to publish an updated version of ssm-search, increment the version number in version.py and run the following:

docker build -f ./Dockerfile.buildenv -t ccurl:build .
docker run --rm -it --entrypoint make ccurl:build publish

At the prompts, enter the username and password to the pypi.org repo.
