Please check the README of »http-fake-backend« to get detailed information about what it’s all about.

This readme only contains the gist of it and mainly describes Yeoman specific things.


First, install Yeoman and generator-http-fake-backend using npm (we assume you have pre-installed Node.js 6.0.0 or greater).

# via Yarn 
yarn global add yo
yarn global add generator-http-fake-backend
# via npm 
npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-http-fake-backend

Then generate your fake backend server:

yo http-fake-backend

Generating endpoints

yo http-fake-backend:endpoint


Please see detailed info regarding how to adjust your endpoints over here:

Start the server

npm run start:dev

This way the server uses nodemon to restart itself on changes. This way you dont have to restart the server in case you changed an endpoint.

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He’s a person with feelings and opinions, but he’s very easy to work with. If you think he’s too opinionated, he can be easily convinced. Feel free to learn more about him.
