Using the Pact Dev Server

Configuration File

The pact dev server (pact-serve) requires a configuration Yaml file (e.g. server.conf) to operate. The documentation for it is:

➜  pact git:(feat/dev-server) pact --serve --help
Config file is YAML format with the following properties:
port       - HTTP server port
persistDir - Directory for database files.
             If ommitted, runs in-memory only.
logDir     - Directory for HTTP logs
pragmas    - SQLite pragmas to use with persistence DBs
verbose    - [True|False] Provide extra logging information

Initializing the server

When running pact-serve with persistence enabled the development server will automatically replay from disk when it starts. In this demo, we are persisting to log/ which causes pact-serve to create or use log/commands.sqlite to store Commands and CommandResults.

The first time you run pact-serve the SQLite DBs will be created empty (as no commands have been run yet). To upload todos.pact, which the front end needs loaded to interact with, you run The important thing to note is that until you delete log/commands.sqlite (or run pact-serve in memory) pact-serve will replay every command (e.g. load todos.pact -> UI interactions) on start up.

If you think of it like a blockchain, deleting the commands.sqlite file or running in memory gives Pact a "fresh" chain to work with.


The front-end of this app was built on React TodoMVC example.
