Jifty::Plugin::TestServerWarnings(3) Stores server warnings away for later fetching


# In your jifty config.yml under the framework section:

- TestServerWarnings:
clear_screen: 1


This plugin add a new appender Jifty::Plugin::TestServerWarnings::Appender on the first request it sees, which stores away all messages it receives. It also removes the default ``Screen'' appender unless clear_screen in config.yml is set to be false or env TEST_VERBOSE is true.

The warnings can be retrieved by a client-side process by calling ``decoded_warnings'' with a base URI to the server.

This plugin is automatically added for all jifty tests.



set clear_screen to 1 if the clear_screen in config.yml is set to be true, if it's not set at all, set it to 1 if TEST_VERBOSE is set to be true.


On the first call to new_request, the plugin adjusts the appenders. This causes it to only have effect if it is run in a forked server process, not in a test process. If "TEST_VERBOSE" is set, it does not remove the Screen appender.

add_warnings WARN, WARN, ..

Takes the given warnings, and stores them away for later reporting.


Returns the stored warnings, as a list. This does not clear the list, unlike ``encoded_warnings'' or ``decoded_warnings''.


Returns the stored warnings, encoded using Storable. This also clears the list of stashed warnings.

decoded_warnings URI

Given the URI to a jifty server with this plugin enabled, retrieves and decodes the stored warnings, returning them. This will also clear the server's stored list of warnings.
