Starting a mock server at port 8080 with plain configuration:

Mock configuration

The JSON format used by configuration is intuitive:

{
  "default404": {
    "body": {
      "message": "resource not found"
    }
  },
  "routes": [
    {
      "method": "get",
      "path": "/hello/:id",
      "status": 200,
      "body": {
        "message": "hello"
      }
    },
    {
      "method": "post",
      "path": "/world",
      "status": 201,
      "headers": {
        "content-type": "text/plain"
      },
      "body": "created"
    }
  ]
}

The default404 is optional and specify how the mock server will return responses for invalid routes (404).

The routes specifies an array of routes. Each one may have method, path, status, headers and body.

Note: the body can be a plain string or a JSON object.

Note: the path should be in the same format accepted by Express Framework (https://expressjs.com/pt-br/4x/api.html#path-examples).
