Easily create dummy HTTP servers
Create fake HTTP servers with simple stanzas.
This module allows you to easily create “dummy” servers from simple descriptive text. Need a dummy server for testing, or maybe the service you’re trying to test doesn’t have a “stage” environment? That’s what this is for.
You can install the extension with pip like
- pip install dumdum
dumdum is both a command-line utility and a library. It takes a simple _stanza_ format and generates a web server with endpoints from that. E.g. to do “hello world” you could do
printf " > GET > /hello < body world . " | dumdum
Then you can test with
% curl http://localhost:8001/hello
> GET /hello HTTP/1.1 > Host: localhost:8001 > User-Agent: curl/7.51.0 > Accept: / > * HTTP 1.0, assume close after body < HTTP/1.0 200 OK < Date: Wed, 17 May 2017 18:43:39 GMT < Server: WSGIServer/0.1 Python/2.7.13 < Content-type: text/plain < Content-Length: 7
This will create a server listening on the default port (8001). Dumdum is a WSGI compliant library, so you can easily serve it from your own code like
from wsgiref.simple_server import make_server from dumdum import Dumdum
dum = Dumdum(“”” > GET > /hello < body world . “”“) srv = make_server(‘’, 5000, dum.server) srv.serve_forever()
