This project aims to provide a server that can be used to test client side HTTP/2 implementations.
One of the most important aspects is handling protocol errors, since it's something that's usually hard to test without custom server side software.
Supported client software
The goal is to be accessible to as many different clients as possible. Currently, you will need a client software with the following capabilities:
- ability to follow redirects (307 Temporary Redirect)
This list will probably gain more items in the future. For example, tests will need a way to tell client software what to do next. The simplest solution is to send HTML code that contains links to images or iframes. This will require the client to be able to parse HTML and initiate requests for subresources.
The only supported version of the standard is the draft-ietf-httpbis-http2-06 draft.
How to use
You will need at least node version 0.10.0. Install http2-testpage using npm (the node package manager):
$ npm install -g http2-testpage
$ http2-testpage -h Usage: http2-testpage [options] Options: -h, --help output usage information -V, --version output the version number -l, --log [level] Logging level [info] -k, --key [path] Private key to use [http2-testpage/keys/localhost.key] -c, --crt [path] Certificate to use [http2-testpage/keys/localhost.crt] -p, --port [port] Port to listen on 
Point your client software to the
https://localhost:8080/testname URL, where
testname is one of
the directory names in the
test directory. It will create a server on a dedicated port and
redirect the client to that port using a 307 Temporary Redirect.
