NodePing badges from Shields.io

Shields.io recently released an update that adds NodePing badges to their service. We’re grateful and honored to be included and wanted to drop a few instructions on how you can configure your customized badges for your NodePing checks from shields.io.

Example badges:

NodePing status badge

Status badge (up/down)

NodePing uptime badge

Uptime badge

 

For the badge to work, you need to make sure your NodePing check has public reporting enabled. Once enabled, you’ll need the UUID (unique ID) of the check.  To find the UUID, open one of NodePing’s reports.  The UUID is shown in the URL.

Example public results report URL:
https://nodeping.com/reports/results/rrwb28un-c0kl-4d7h-8n2u-xcosuprs2439/100

The “rrwb28un-c0kl-4d7h-8n2u-xcosuprs2439” part is the unique random id part.  Yours will be the same length, but different from mine.

Now that you’ve got your check UUID, head over to the shields.io site and click on your choice of badge type:  “NodePing status (customized)” or “NodePing uptime” to open the shields.io badge customizer modal.

You can set all kinds of customizations like:

  • up message e.g. Online
  • up color e.g. green
  • down message e.g. Offline
  • down color e.g. lightgrey 
  • style (lots to choose from)
  • label shown
  • background color for the label

Click on the ‘Copy badge URL’ button to get the URL into your clipboard. You can also get the code for Markdown or HTML – easy peasy. Paste it into your website or .md file and feast your eyes on your freshly minted badge.

Cool new visibility for your uptime with shields.io and NodePing. If you don’t have a NodePing account yet, sign up for our 15-day, free trial today over at https://nodeping.com and let us handle your monitoring and notifications.
