hospital: healthchecks for Python

hospital is a Python framework to write health checks, smoke tests or diagnoses around applications or services.


Health checks are kind of tests, applied to running applications and services:

  • write healtchecks just as you would write tests, using assertions;
  • collect and run healthchecks with test runners;
  • use healthchecks to validate deployments;
  • plug healthchecks in supervision and monitoring tools;
  • in case of incidents, use healthchecks to diagnose problems.

Project status

hospital is not full-featured yet. Some important features are in the roadmap. See also vision.

Of course, any ideas, feedback and help are welcome :)
