Demo Applications  🔗

The best way to get data into Honeycomb is to instrument your own applications. If you would like to start with an application that is pre-instrumented with tracing data, these examples are for you. Each simulates a microservice ecosystem and comes pre-loaded with tracing data. To use based on your application source, you will need:

  • Glitch: A Honeycomb account and a Glitch account. Remix the application on Glitch, load it with a Honeycomb API key and environment variables, and run the app to generate trace data that you can view in Honeycomb.
  • GitHub: A Honeycomb account and a git client. Clone the GitHub repo to run it in your local development environment. Configure the code with a Honeycomb API key and environment variables, and run the app to generate trace data that you can view in Honeycomb.

Further instructions are included in the README.md of each demo.
