Test::Nginx 0.29 Released

Johnny Wang , 08 Nov 2020 (created 08 Nov 2020)

We have uploaded Test::Nginx 0.29 to CPAN:

https://metacpan.org/release/Test-Nginx

It will appear on the CPAN mirror near you in the next few hours or so. After that, you can install the module like below

sudo cpan Test::Nginx

or better, when you have the App::cpanminus module already installed:

sudo cpanm Test::Nginx

Special thanks go to all our contributors and developers!

Full Change logs

Here's the complete change log for this release (compared to the last CPAN release, 0.28):

  • bugfix: check leak mode: use much larger number of requests for ab/weighttp to make sure we always have the load even for large TEST_NGINX_CHECK_LEAK_COUNT values.

  • feature: added TEST_NGINX_RAND_PORT_XXX variable to provide random ports during environment variable expansion.

  • bugfix: log correct server address when server_addr_for_client section is used.

About Test::Nginx

This Perl module provides a test scaffold for automated testing in Nginx C module or OpenResty-based Lua library development.

This class inherits from Test::Base, thus bringing all its declarative power to the Nginx C module testing practices.

All of our OpenResty projects are using this test scaffold for automated regression testing.

Please check out the full documentation on CPAN:

https://metacpan.org/pod/Test::Nginx::Socket

as well as the official user guide in the book "Programming OpenResty":

https://openresty.gitbooks.io/programming-openresty/content/testing/

All of our Nginx modules (as well as our lua-resty-* libraries) are using Test::Nginx to drive their test suites. And it is also driving my test cluster running on Amazon EC2:

Please note that this module is completely different from the Test::Nginx module originally created by Maxim Dounin.

The git repository for this Perl module is hosted on GitHub:
