Testground is an open source tool developer by Protocol Labs. It’s designed to write large scale test plans for decentralized software.
Run testground on your server
Setup testground on a server,
Run the daemon with
On your machine, tunnel the testground port:
ssh MYMACHINE -N -L "8043:localhost:8042"
Then change the testground configuration to talk to your server:
[client] endpoint = "http://localhost:8043"
Now you can talk to your server without wasting time with proxies and stuff.
You can access your dashboard at http://localhost:8043/.
Import testground plans with a name
I use a lot of testground test plans, for example:
Each of these have different use cases, and I ended up with a lot of different plans. Also you need sort of a fixed names for your plan when you run them through a composition (to be explained).
When you import a plan you can give them a name, for example:
testground plan import --from ./ --name libp2p
Now all the plans in this folder can be addressed with the name
libp2p. I can run:
testground run single --plan libp2p/ping-interop/go-v0.11 --testcase=ping --builder=doc..
Same for other projects, note the
testground prefix in the plan name:
testground run single --plan=testground/example-rust --testcase=tcp-connect --builder=d..
You can use the
run single command from anywhere because testground is actually looking for symbolic links in the
~/testground folder hence the naming prefix working.
I wrote software for large distributed systems, web applications, and even robots.
Now I focus on decentralization, overly-engineered software, and frugal innovation.
