apiculator

Mock JSON API tool for Node, using:

Directories specify routes; files specify methods

api
└── get.json

Will respond to any GET request to '/' with the JSON in the file.

Header tags give the client control

api
└── session
    ├── post.json
    └── post+bad.json

Generally, if the client POSTs to '/session' then post.json is the response.

However, if the client POSTs to '/session' with the HTTP header X-APICULATOR-TAGS: bad, then the post+bad.json is the response.

Babelon templates and helpers for terse JSON

api
└── users
    └── get.babelon

> api/user/get.babelon

{
  ok: true,
  users: _.times(5, () => ({
    id: faker.random.number(),
    name: `${faker.name.firstName()} ${faker.name.lastName()}`
  }))
}

Rules for when you need them

api
└── gatekeeper
    └── _rules.babelon

> api/gatekeeper/_rules.babelon

[
  // correct password 
  {
    request: {
      body: (body) => (body.password === 'secret')
    },
    response: {
      status: 302,
      redirect: '/users'
    }
  },
  // catches all other requests (wrong password) 
  {
    response: {
      json: { ok: false }
    }
  }
]
