Clients to test api compliance?

I’m looking towards updating remotestorage-ruby

I noticed there’s inspektor to help one with this but I was wondering if it is up to date with remotestorage12?

I checked the api test suit and it seems to be outdated for this goal.

If anyone feels like giving away some tips or hints that’d be awesome.

Hi, first of all, thanks for planning to update remotestorage-ruby!

I took a look at the api-test-suite, it does check for the file/folder collisions that was added in version 12 of the spec, so it is a good starting point for your goal. We’re going to take a look to see if other specs are missing (there were not many others changes if I remember correctly), as well as update the outdated README that’s saying it supports -03 to -05.

Edit: here are the collision checks: https://github.com/remotestorage/api-test-suite/blob/master/api_spec.rb#L118-L123 and https://github.com/remotestorage/api-test-suite/blob/master/api_spec.rb#L136-L146

Author of Inspektor here. I guess Inspektor is more useful for app development than server development, because it’s just a file browser for RS accounts. But if you run the api-test-suite against your server and it’s green, then all apps should work with it, including Inspektor.

I forgot to mention that you can probably draw some inspiration and potentially straight-up source code from liquor-cabinet, which drives the 5apps Storage RS API in production. (It’s a Sinatra app, so it’s all Ruby.)
