After installing the Capter CLI it's time to create your first workflow. You write your workflows in YAML, which should be a familiar language if you have used something like GitHub Actions or Travis CI before.
You can create as many worfklows as you'd like, and you put them in a
./capter folder at the root of your project.
A workflow in Capter consists of one or more of requests, and then assertions on the responses of those requests. Below is a mimimal workflow that checks if the
/health endpoint of our API returns
The next step is to run the CLI. Depending on how you installed Capter, the way to run it might differ – but for the most part you can just run the
capter test command:
You should see something like this:
Just checking the health endpoint is probably not why you're looking in to Capter – there are a lot of other tools that can do that! The next step is to learn how to compose requests.
