hms_ping, simple ping micro-service

This service is responsible of sending a ping command to all microservices when a ping request is published over the different user interfaces (IRC, CLI, HTTP, …).

The code is simple and can be used as an example of listening/publishing service for making other ones.


Create a Python 3 virtualenv and the package:

$ virtualenv -ppython3 venv
$ source venv/bin/activate
(venv) $ pip install .

You can then start the server inside the virtualenv:

(venv) $ hms_ping

And call the CLI tool too:

(venv) $ hms_ping_send
