The Apache Mesos project allows a developer to orchestrate and utilize a cluster of machines as if it were a single pool of resources. Engineers from multiple disciplines are writing “frameworks” to take advantage of the redundancy and scalability that Mesos provides. During the development of the ELK stack on Mesos (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) we found that the Mesos and Docker community is sorely missing tools to enable integration tests and projects to reduce boilerplate code. We decided to create our own tool for experimenting with Mesos and testing frameworks: minimesos, available at


Minimesos is an experimentation and testing tool which can be used as a standalone cli application or from within a JUnit test. Start a containerized Mesos cluster, start the scheduler of your framework and perform assertions. At the end of the test the cluster is destroyed.
