Adds bad behaviour to a http.Handler from a YAML config. Useful for simulating those troublesome integration points

# Delays initial writing of response by a second 20% of the time
- delay: 1000
  frequency: 0.2

# Returns a 404 30% of the time

Overview

    Package monkey lets you wrap bad behaviour around your http.Handlers, such as request delays, incorrect responses, bodies and returning garbage from configuration. By using monkey you can simulate the unpredictable nature of calling services over HTTP.

    Functions

    func NewServer

    func NewServer(server http.Handler, configPath string) (http.Handler, error)

      NewServer creates a http.Handler which wraps it's monkey business around it, to return a new http.Handler. If no behaviours are defined in the config it will return the original handler, otherwise an error

      Example

        ExampleNewServer is an example as to how use monkey to wrap around a http.Handler and change it's behaviour

        func NewServerFromYAML

        func NewServerFromYAML(server http.Handler, YAML []byte) (http.Handler, error)

          NewServerFromYAML creates a http.Handler which wraps monkey business defined from YAML around it, to return a new http.Handler. If the YAML is invalid, it will return an error.
