Testing Gateway

Manual tests

Certain manual tests are defined in the gateway/manual-tests/ file. To run them, ensure that you have curl installed in your system.



# Install curl
brew install curl

# Install jq (note: jq is like `sed` for JSON data)
brew install jq

# Install envsubst
brew install gettext
brew link --force gettext


# Install curl
sudo apt install curl

# Install jq
sudo apt install jq

Testing using curl

Initialize environment variables that use the certs folder path from Setup - 1. Generate Certs to define access to Gateway. This path should also be defined in gateway/conf/ssl.yml:

# Replace the path with the certs folder path
export GATEWAY_CERT="/Users/myname/.hummingbot-gateway/hummingbot-gateway-1dd88a7e8/certs/client_cert.pem"
export GATEWAY_KEY="/Users/myname/.hummingbot-gateway/hummingbot-gateway-1dd88a7e8/certs/client_key.pem"

Then, copy and paste individual commands into your Terminal to execute the tests accordingly:

(hummingbot) manual-tests  curl -s -X GET -k --key $GATEWAY_KEY --cert $GATEWAY_CERT https://localhost:5000/ | jq

  "status": "ok"

(hummingbot) manual-tests  curl -s -X POST -k --key $GATEWAY_KEY --cert $GATEWAY_CERT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d "$(envsubst < ./requests/price_uniswap.json)" https://localhost:5000/amm/price | jq

Testing with Postman

Hummingbot Foundation maintains a Postman workspace that developers can use for testing.

See this Notion page for more information about how to use the workspace with Postman.
