Pokey

Gem Version Code Climate

Pokey is a Ruby gem designed to easily simulate webhooks / other HTTP requests common to a production environment.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'pokey'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install pokey

Usage

If you're using Rails, create the initializer by running:

$ rails g pokey:install

Otherwise, create a new file in your initializers directory named pokey.rb. You'll be setting the default hook directory and (optionally) defining custom hooks here.

Pokey.configure do |config|
  config.hook_dir = "app/pokey" # Defaults to app/pokey
  config.run_on = [:development, :qa] # Only set environments you want pokey to
                                      # simulate requests for. If not using Rails,
                                      # this currently has no effect

  config.add_hook do |hook|
    hook.destination = "/my/webhook/endpoint"
    hook.data = {
      name: "Test endpoint",
      endpoint_id: 1
    }
    hook.interval = 20 # in seconds
    hook.http_method = :post # supports GET and POST for right now
  end
end

If you would like to add many hooks to your project, you can place them in the hook_dir you specified in the initializer. Please note that each file must have a _hook.rb suffix. If you're using Rails, you can run

$ rails g pokey:hook sendgrid_event

to create a new Pokey::Hook template. Otherwise, create a file like the following:

# app/pokey/my_custom_hook.rb
class MyCustomHook < Pokey::Hook
  # The API endpoint to hit
  def destination
  end

  # The data to pass along to the API endpoint
  def data
    { }
  end

  # The HTTP method to use (only supports GET/POST right now)
  def http_method
    :post
  end

  # Time (in seconds) between requests
  def interval
    5
  end
end

As your data will inevitably get more complex to simulate actual events, Pokey::Hook subclasses are preferred over ad-hoc hook definitions.

Pre-made Hooks

I'm attempting to create a suite of pre-made hooks to make simulating production data easier. Here is a list:
