servirtium-rust

A Rust implementation of Servirtium, a library that helps test interactions with APIs.

How it works

Servirtium is a server that serves as a man-in-the-middle: it processes incoming requests, forwards them to a destination API and writes the response into a Markdown file with a special format that is common across all of the implementations of the library. Later these Markdown files are used to replay the interactions that were recorded before, allowing to test interactions without making real API calls.

Prerequisites

The library is written in the Rust programming language, so to use or compile the library you need Cargo. You can download it on the official site.

Building

To build the library, type the following into the command line in the project root directory:

$ cargo build

Usage

The library isn't published to crates.io yet, so you can't refer to the package the ordinary way. You need to specify a git dependency instead in the Cargo.toml. It is better to refer to the library as a development dependency, because it is only useful in tests:

[dev-dependencies]
servirtium = { git = "https://github.com/servirtium/servirtium-rust" }

After specifying the dependency, you can place one of the following attributes on a test function to start the Servirtium server and configure it to serve requests in record or playback mode.

use servirtium::{
    servirtium_record_test,
    servirtium_playback_test
};

// record mode, write the results into the specified markdown. Forward API
// requests to the specified url.
#[servirtium_record_test("path_to_markdown.md", "https://exampleapi.org")]
fn record_test() {
    // make some calls to localhost:61417 ...
}

// playback mode. Don't forward API requests to the destination API, but
// replay the responses according to the data in the specified markdown
#[servirtium_playback_test("path_to_markdown.md", "https://exampleapi.org")]
fn playback_test() {
    // make some calls to localhost:61417 ...
}

You can also pass a configuration function instead of a domain name to the attribute to allow more fine-grained configuration of the Servirtium server:

use servirtium::{ServirtiumConfiguration, servirtium_record_test};

fn configure(config: &mut ServirtiumConfiguration) {
    config.set_domain_name("https://exampleapi.org");
    config.set_fail_if_markdown_changed(true);

    config.add_record_response_mutations(|builder| {
        builder.remove_headers(vec!["set-cookie", "date"])
    });

    config.add_playback_response_mutations(|builder| {
        builder.add_header("date", "Sun, 02 Aug 2020 09:53:31 GMT")
    });
}

// call the configure function before executing the test code
#[servirtium_record_test("path_to_markdown.md", configure)]
fn playback_test() {
    // make some calls to localhost:61417 ...
}

When the tests are run, a single Servirtium server instance is run in a separate thread (in-process) and starts listening on port 61417.

In record mode all requests are forwarded to the destination API and the responses are written in the markdown file specified in the attribute.

In playback mode the Servirtium server replays all the interactions occurred in record mode without accessing the destination API.
