Smokex provides a powerful engine to create any kind of automated requests and we want to share with you a bunch of common use cases from our users.
I have an application without tests... You can create any test in no time, just write the request and set any expectation to verify the information received is correct. This will create a new test without having to write any line of code in your application!
Can I use it to know if my application is up? Yes indeed! Just create a workflow to make a request to the desired URL and Smokex will automatically notify if the response from the server is not correct.
I need to send a keep alive message to my host... No problem, just as easy as creating a new workflow and set a cron sentence to specify when Smokex should send the request to your host.
You can also send requests and expect a minimum response time, if your application takes more time to send the response Smokex will notify you so you can take a look at the current performance of your system!
Liking the new #nocode trend? You can consume and send data from third parties using a workflow, this means you don't even need to write a backend to work with your data
