This distribution provides two testing modules for Nginx C module development:
Test::Nginx::Socket (This is highly recommended.)
This library also has the following subclasses:
Test::Nginx::LWP (This is obsolete.)
All of them are based on Test::Base.
Also, a lot of connection hang issues (like wrong
r->main->count value in nginx
0.8.x) can only be captured by Test::Nginx::Socket because Perl's LWP::UserAgent client
will close the connection itself which will conceal such issues from
Test::Nginx automatically starts an nginx instance (from the
rooted at t/servroot/ and the default config template makes this nginx
instance listen on the port
1984 by default. One can specify a different
port number by setting his port number to the
You can find a comprehensive user guide on this test framework in my upcoming book "Programming OpenResty":
If you have `cpan` installed, you can simply run the command to install this module:
sudo cpan Test::Nginx
If you want to install from the source code directory directly, you can run
sudo cpan .
If you prefer
cpan (like I do!), you can replace
cpan in the commands above with
Otherwise you can install this module in the good old way below:
perl Makefile.PL make sudo make install
This module has a Git repository on Github, which has access for all.
If you want a commit bit, feel free to drop me a line.
António P. P. Almeida is maintaining a Debian package for this module in his Debian repository: http://debian.perusio.net
