GoDoc Build Status Go Report Card

Go(lang) client library for Cachet (open source status page system).

Features

  • Full API support
    • Components
    • Incidents
    • Metrics
    • Subscribers
  • Various authentication methods (Basic Auth and Token based)
  • Fully tested

Installation

It is go gettable

$ go get github.com/andygrunwald/cachet

(optional) to run unit / example tests:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/andygrunwald/cachet
$ go test -v ./...

API

Please have a look at the GoDoc documentation for a detailed API description.

Authentication

Cachet supports two different ways for authentication: BasicAuth and API Token. Both are supported by this library.

For BasicAuth you need to call the AuthenticationService and apply your email address and your password:

client.Authentication.SetBasicAuth("test@test.com", "test123")

To use the API Token way, you do nearly the same but use the SetTokenAuth function:

client.Authentication.SetTokenAuth("MY-SECRET-TOKEN")

Examples

Further a few examples how the API can be used. A few more examples are available in the GoDoc examples section.

Ping

Call the API test endpoint. Example without error handling. Full example available in the GoDoc examples section.

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "github.com/andygrunwald/cachet"
)

func main() {
    client, _ := cachet.NewClient("https://demo.cachethq.io/", nil)
    pong, resp, _ := client.General.Ping()

    fmt.Printf("Result: %s\n", pong)
    fmt.Printf("Status: %s\n", resp.Status)

    // Output: Result: Pong!
    // Status: 200 OK
}

Create a new component

Calling /components. Example without error handling. Full example available in the GoDoc examples section.

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "github.com/andygrunwald/cachet"
)

func main() {
    client, _ := cachet.NewClient("https://demo.cachethq.io/", nil)
    client.Authentication.SetBasicAuth("test@test.com", "test123")

    component := &cachet.Component{
        Name:        "Beer Fridge",
        Description: "Status of the beer fridge in the kitchen",
        Status:      cachet.ComponentStatusOperational,
    }
    newComponent, resp, _ := client.Components.Create(component)

    fmt.Printf("Result: %s\n", newComponent.Name)
    if newComponent.ID > 0 {
        fmt.Println("ID > 0!")
    }
    fmt.Printf("Status: %s\n", resp.Status)

    // Output: Beer Fridge
    // ID > 0!
    // Status: 200 OK
}
