Testing Applications

Once your build is successful, wait until your device reboots.

On your device, use the following command to list the shellhttpd service:

systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled | grep shellhttpd
shellhttpd.service                         enabled         enabled

Verify the status of shellhttpd:

systemctl status shellhttpd
shellhttpd.service - Start up Shellhttpd Application
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/shellhttpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since
 Main PID: 404 (sh)
    Tasks: 2 (limit: 777)
   Memory: 2.1M
   CGroup: /system.slice/shellhttpd.service
           ├─404 /bin/sh /usr/share/shellhttpd/httpd.sh
           └─413 nc -c -l -p 8090

Using a second terminal, test your application using curl from any external device connected to the same network, such as your computer.

#Example curl
curl <device IP>:8090
Hello from Shellhttpd Recipe

Finally, from the same device, try to use curl instead of wget:

curl localhost:8090
Hello from Shellhttpd Recipe
