Ruby DnsMock

Maintainability Test Coverage CircleCI Gem Version Downloads GitHub Contributor Covenant

πŸ’Ž Ruby DNS mock. Mimic any DNS records for your test environment and even more.

Table of Contents

Features

  • Ability to mimic any DNS records (A, AAAA, CNAME, MX, NS, PTR, SOA and TXT)
  • Zero runtime dependencies
  • Lightweight UDP DNS mock server with dynamic/manual port assignment
  • Test framework agnostic (it's PORO, so you can use it outside of RSpec, Test::Unit or MiniTest)
  • Simple and intuitive DSL

Requirements

Ruby MRI 2.5.0+

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

group :development, :test do
  gem 'dns_mock', require: false
end

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install dns_mock

Usage

# Example of mocked DNS records, please follow this data structure
records = {
  'example.com' => {
    a: %w[1.1.1.1 2.2.2.2],
    aaaa: %w[2a00:1450:4001:81e::200e],
    ns: %w[ns1.domain.com ns2.domain.com],
    mx: %w[mx1.domain.com mx2.domain.com:50], # you can specify host(s) or host(s) with priority
    txt: %w[txt_record_1 txt_record_2],
    cname: 'some.domain.com',
    soa: [
      {
        mname: 'dns1.domain.com',
        rname: 'dns2.domain.com',
        serial: 2_035_971_683,
        refresh: 10_000,
        retry: 2_400,
        expire: 604_800,
        minimum: 3_600
      }
    ]
  },
  '1.2.3.4' => {
    ptr: %w[domain_1.com domain_2.com]
  }
}

# Main DnsMock interface
# records:Hash, port:Integer, exception_if_not_found:Boolean
# are optional params. By default creates dns mock server with
# empty records. A free port for server will be randomly assigned
# in the range from 49152 to 65535, if record not found exception
# won't raises. Returns current dns mock server
dns_mock_server = DnsMock.start_server(records: records) # => DnsMock::Server instance

# returns current dns mock server port
dns_mock_server.port # => 49322

# interface to setup mock records.
# Available only in case when server mocked records is empty
dns_mock_server.assign_mocks(records) # => true/nil

# interface to reset current mocked records
dns_mock_server.reset_mocks! # => true

# interface to stop current dns mock server
dns_mock_server.stop! # => true

# returns list of running dns mock servers
DnsMock.running_servers # => [DnsMock::Server instance]

# interface to stop all running dns mock servers
DnsMock.stop_running_servers! # => true

RSpec

Require this either in your Gemfile or in RSpec's support scripts. So either:

# Gemfile
group :test do
  gem 'rspec'
  gem 'dns_mock', require: 'dns_mock/test_framework/rspec'
end

or

# spec/support/config/dns_mock.rb
require 'dns_mock/test_framework/rspec'

DnsMock RSpec helper

Just add DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Helper if you wanna use shortcut dns_mock_server for DnsMock server instance into your RSpec.describe blocks:

# spec/support/config/dns_mock.rb
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.include DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Helper
end
# your awesome first_a_record_spec.rb
RSpec.describe FirstARecord do
  subject(:service) do
    described_class.call(
      hostname,
      dns_gateway_host: 'localhost',
      dns_gateway_port: dns_mock_server.port
    )
  end

  let(:hostname) { 'example.com' }
  let(:first_a_record) { '1.2.3.4' }
  let(:records) { { hostname => { a: [first_a_record] } } }

  before { dns_mock_server.assign_mocks(records) }

  it { is_expected.to eq(first_a_record) }
end

DnsMock RSpec interface

If you won't use DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Helper you can use DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Interface directly instead:

DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Interface.start_server  # creates and runs DnsMock server instance
DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Interface.stop_server!  # stops current DnsMock server instance
DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Interface.reset_mocks!  # resets mocks in current DnsMock server instance
DnsMock::TestFramework::RSpec::Interface.clear_server! # stops and clears current DnsMock server instance
