network testing framework (ntf)

Easy acceptance testing for your network services with Node.js

ntf is a suite of components to make it easy to test and monitor the state of your network services and applications. Test HTTP, DNS, and raw sockets with high-level helper functions on top of nodeunit. Run suites of tests continuously, and see reporting and performance trending in real time. Open source, developed at Shutterstock.
ntf Project on GitHub
var ntf = require('ntf') , test = ntf.http('') exports.home = test.get('/', function(test) { test.statusCode(200) test.body('ntf') test.done() })

High-level HTTP, DNS, and socket testing

Test different types of responses for the parts you care about -- statuses, regex content matches, JSON subsets, etc

Run Tests Continuously

ntfd manages scheduling and running your suites of tests. Handle results with plug-ins or write your own callbacks.

var ntfd = require('ntfd') ntfd({ path: __dirname + '/tests', agent: 'test', plugin: [ new ntfd.plugin.ConsoleEmitter() ], test: { interval: 10 } })

Reporting in Real-time

See results from test suites in real-time via WebSockets. Drill down for more granular test and performance data. There's a REST API built-in too.
