In the previous version of the AppInspect App for Splunk, a more annoying problem with the app was that it required you to re-login to your Splunk Account every time you wanted to use the app. The new version solves this problem by checking your current token to see if it’s still valid; if it is, it will just skip the login process altogether.
Side Note: Splunk’s UI Toolkit has significantly sped up our custom front-end development time in Splunk. If you’re an app developer and you haven’t checked it out yet, we highly recommend it.
New release: AppInspect CLI
The second AppInspect tool we are releasing is an AppInspect CLI.
Now, you may be saying to yourself, “but that already exists…” However, this is slightly different in that it is a CLI tool that uses the AppInspect API. We use it at Hurricane Labs as a part of our Splunk App Build process. We also like to use it in conjunction with the regular AppInspect CLI in order to compare results.
You can download the AppInspect API CLI Wrapper here.
And, if you’re a Mac user, you can download it using Homebrew. Instruction can be found in the README file in the link above.
As always, we’d love to hear from you regarding these tools. Your feedback helps us to improve what we’ve built for the Splunk community.
