Locust Plugins

Build Status license PyPI PyPI GitHub contributors

The purpose of this project is to gather a curated set of plugins/extensions for Locust.

Locust itself is a bare bones load generation tool (compared to for example JMeter or Gatling) and it is left to the user to build even basic functionality (like reading test data from a database, using non-HTTP protocols, etc).

This keeps Locust lean and mean, but forcing everyone to reinvent the wheel is not good either.

So I (Lars Holmber) LarsHolmberg ( ) decided to publish my own plugins and hope that others (maybe you ?) will contribute their solutions to common Locust use cases.

Having this separate from “Locust core” allows the plugins to evolve faster (at the expense of being less mature), and avoids bloating Locust with functionality you might not be interested in.
