Hitch Package APIΒΆ


This documentation applies to the latest version of hitchtest.

The Hitch Package API is an API which allows tests to download and install their own software to use in the ~/.hitchpkg directory. It allows testers to easily specify exact versions of software to test with and test with multiple versions.

Note that the Hitch Package API is not yet stable, so building packages on top of it is not recommended yet.

The following documented, tested :doc:`/glossary/hitch_plugin`s are currently using the package API to download and install software you can use to test your applications with:

The following undocumented plugins are also using the package API:

  • HitchMySQL
  • /plugins/hitchrabbit
  • /plugins/hitchelasticsearch
  • /plugins/hitchmemcache
