    What is Camouflage?

    Camouflage is a service virtualization tool inspired by namshi/mockserver. Camouflage works on a file based endpoint configuration system, which means it allows you to create a mock endpoint by simply creating a set of directories and a mock file, using which necessary responses are generated when you call the endpoint.

    Available Features

    🔥 File based mocking support for HTTP, HTTPS, HTTP2, gRPC and websockets. 🔥

    Dynamic/realistic responses without having to write any code.

    🧩 Flexibility to partially or fully code your responses. 🧩

    🎯 Conditional responses based on request parameters. 🎯

    🌟 Inbuilt Caching - In memory and redis. 🌟

    🧮 Ability to fetch and condition the response using external data. Currently supported data sources are CSV and postgres. 🧮

    Delay Simulation.

    🔍 Inbuilt monitoring. 🔍

    🦺 Inbuilt backup and restore mechanism. 🦺

    Quick start with camouflage init and camouflage restore modules.

    🎊 Deployable on standalone VMs, Dockers and Kubernetes. 🎊

    📁 Comes with a file explorer UI that allows modification of mock files hosted remotely. 📁

    Getting Started

    1. Camouflage is an NPM package, therefore to install Camouflage, you'd need to install NodeJS (>v14) first, if you haven't already done so.
    2. Install Camouflage: npm install -g camouflage-server
    3. Run camouflage --version to validate the installation was successful.
    4. Create an empty directory anywhere in your machine and navigate to it in your terminal.
    5. Execute command camouflage init. This creates a basic skeleton of the folders you'd need in order to get started. You can modify these folders as per your requirements.
    6. Start the Camouflage server by initializing it with a config.yml file: camouflage --config config.yml

    Create your first mock

    Camouflage uses a file based system to configure the endpoints. For example, to create a mock to the endpoint /hello-world:

    1. You start by creating a directory ${MOCKS_DIR}/hello-world
    2. Create a file GET.mock under ${MOCKS_DIR}/hello-world
    3. Paste following content:
    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    X-Custom-Header: Custom-Value
    Content-Type: application/json
    
    {
        "greeting": "Hey! It works!"
    }
    

    Navigate to http://localhost:8080/hello-world

    ${MOCK_DIR} is defined in config.yaml as protocols.http.mocks_dir. Refer to docs for more details.

    Contributing

    All and any relevant contributions to the project are welcome. Easiest way to contribute to Camouflage is to 🌟 the project. You can also help find typos and grammatical mistakes in the documentation to earn a quick 🟩 for your Github profile.

    If you'd like to get into technical nitty gritty, I have tried my best to provide relevant comments throughout the code base with a JSDocs available too. Since we are still in beta, there are frequent changes in the codebase, which might at times lead to outdated JSDocs, in which case, feel free to reach out via discussions or join us on discord.

    Building from source

    Camouflage is quickly approaching it's first release i.e. v1.0.0, however while it is still in beta, there might be some bugs, missed use cases, incorrect implementations of some functionalities. This is to be expected. But, the good news is that we are constantly evolving.

    There might be times when latest changes have not gone to release yet. You can find such changes in the develop branch of the repository, which is the most updated version of Camouflage. If you'd like to get your hands on the upcoming release of Camouflage at any point, you can build it from the source. However, since this source might contain changes that are not tested yet and are not ready for use, you might want to proceed with caution.

    1. Clone the repository: git clone https://github.com/testinggospels/camouflage.git
    2. Checkout develop branch: git checkout develop
    3. Install dependencies: npm install
    4. Build the project: npm build
    5. At this point you can run Camouflage using: node bin/camouflage.js --config ./config.yml
    6. However if you'd like to install Camouflage globally, execute: npm pack
    7. Install by running command: npm install -g camouflage-server-0.0.0-development.tgz or npm install -g camouflage-server-0.0.0-development.zip
