Speed Test for DigitalOcean

Run speed tests for all DigitalOcean datacenters faster than ever.

Speed Test for DigitalOcean


Unfortunately, this service is no longer available, as DigitalOcean’s regional speedtest subdomains, such as speedtest-nyc1.digitalocean.com, are no longer up and running. As suggested by them, you can refer to their new documentation for instructions on how to test latency.

DigitalOcean provides usefull links to run speed tests for each datacenter, but only one at a time. I created this repository to speed up this process.

This tool uses the same service used by speedtest-*.digitalocean.com so the result should be the same.

Micro Frontend

Unfortunately, this application is not working anymore from my domain since the speed test service is now validating the domain name.

Of course, the valid domain is the DigitalOcean domain. Given that, I decided to refactor this application to be served as a micro-frontend so that we are able to inject it into their website.

How does it work?

When Travis CI builds the website and publishes it to GitHub Pages, two files are generated (main.js and main.css). They are used both to render the website hosted at speedtest-do.marcomontalbano.com and to render the injected application at speedtest-nyc1.digitalocean.com.

The bookmark is simply a javascript code that injects both files in the website in a similar way:

var script = document.createElement('script');
script.src = 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/marcomontalbano/speedtest-for-digitalocean@latest/static/js/main.js';

var style = document.createElement('link');
style.href = 'https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/marcomontalbano/speedtest-for-digitalocean@latest/static/css/main.css';
style.rel = 'stylesheet';

document.head.innerHTML = '';
document.body.innerHTML = '';

document.body.setAttribute('id', 'st4do-root');
document.head.append(script, style);

You can take a look at the production code being used: bookmark.js
