NextJs Sample Application


This is a sample app to test Keploy integration capabilities using NextJS and Postgres with Drizzle ORM. Buckle up, it's gonna be a fun ride! 🎢

🛠️ Platform-Specific Requirements for Keploy

Below is a table summarizing the tools needed for both native and Docker installations of Keploy on MacOS, Windows, and Linux:

Operating SystemWithout DockerDocker InstallationPrerequisites
MacOS MacOSNot SupportedSupportedDocker Desktop version must be 4.25.2 or above
Windows WindowsSupportedSupported- Use WSL wsl --install
- Windows 10 version 2004 and higher (Build 19041 and higher) or Windows 11
Linux LinuxSupportedSupportedLinux kernel 5.15 or higher

On MacOS and Windows, additional tools are required for Keploy due to the lack of native eBPF support.

Quick Installation

Let's get started by setting up the Keploy alias with this command:

 curl --silent -O -L && source

🎉 Wohoo! You are all set to use Keploy.

Get Started! 🎬

Now that we have bun installed, we will setup our application.

git clone && cd samples-typscript/nextjs-postgres

## Download node modules
npm install

# start the database instance
docker-compose up

Installation 📥

Running App Locally on Linux/WSL 🐧

We'll be running our sample application right on Linux, but just to make things a tad more thrilling, we'll have the database (Redis) chill on Docker. Ready? Let's get the party started!🎉

Capture testcase

Ready, set, record! Here's how:

sudo -E env PATH=$PATH keploy record -c 'npm run dev'

Alright, magician! With the app alive and kicking, let's weave some test cases. The spell? Making some API calls!

Generate testcases

1. Create Post request

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"name":"John","email":""}' http://localhost:3000/api/users

This will return the response:

"users": [
"id": 3,
"name": "John",
"email": "",
"createdAt": "2024-03-27T10:07:30.172Z"

2. Make Get Request

curl -X GET http://localhost:3000/api/users

Test Record

Give yourself a pat on the back! With that simple spell, you've conjured up test cases with a mock! Explore the Keploy directory and you'll discover your handiwork in test-1.yml and mocks.yml.

Want to see if everything works as expected?

Run Tests

Time to put things to the test 🧪

sudo -E env PATH=$PATH keploy test -c "npm run dev" --delay 10

Test Record

The --delay flag? Oh, that's just giving your app a little breather (in seconds) before the test cases come knocking.

Final thoughts? Dive deeper! Try different API calls, tweak the DB response in the mocks.yml, or fiddle with the request or response in test-x.yml. Run the tests again and see the magic unfold!✨👩‍💻👨‍💻✨

Wrapping it up 🎉

Congrats on the journey so far! You've seen Keploy's power, flexed your coding muscles, and had a bit of fun too! Now, go out there and keep exploring, innovating, and creating! Remember, with the right tools and a sprinkle of fun, anything's possible. 😊🚀

Happy coding! ✨👩‍💻👨‍💻✨
