Wackamole

Observe your web applications in the wild!

DESCRIPTION:

This is a companion sinatra app for the Rackamole framework which provides for recording
interactions with your rack applications. Wackamole allows you to view, filter and drilldown

applications live in the wild...

USAGE

IMPORTANT: You moled database naming is important here, as Wackamole is setup to snif out the moled application
databases using the prefix 'mole_'. So you must name your mole databases according to this convention. ie
mole_{app_name}_{environment}_mdb ie mole_fred_development_mdb

Configure It!

!!! WARNING File format change from 0.1.2 on !!!

You will need to give wackamole some information about your rackamole configuration. 
In order to do so, create a .wackamole directory in your home directory and create 
a file zones.yml. You will need to specify the envs, host and ports specific
to your configuration, but here is a sample.

zones.yml

  # New ! Optionally you can specify login name and password for the Wackamole web app.
  console_auth: &auth
    auth:
      user:     admin
      password: admin

  zones:
    local:
      host:  localhost
      port:  27017

    staging:
      host:     beta_host_name
      port:     27017
      user:     bobo
      password: secret

Launch It!

Watch your creation live! 

NOTE: By default wackamole uses memcache for storing its session information.

> wackamole

  Alternatively you can use a different mongo instance to store wackamole session information
  or use memcache by specifying the --pool options as follows:

  To use the mongo session store on localhost at port 27030 with db name 'wackamole' and collection named 'sessions'

  > wackamole --pool "mongo://localhost:27030/wackamole/sessions"

  To use memcache session store on localhost at port 11233 with namespace 'wackamole'

  > wackamole --pool "memcache://localhost:11233/wackamole"

  The pool options assumes the following format:

  --pool {mongo|memcache}://{host}:{port}/{db_name|namespace}/[cltn_name]

  To launch wackamole in a given environment defined in your wackamole.yml configuration.

  > wackamole -e env

  This option defaults to production.

Please checkout the forum and send us feedback and issues. This is still work in progress so your
feedback is very important and will be very much appreciated!
