Injects a fake HTTP request/response into a node HTTP server for simulating server logic, writing tests, or debugging. Does not use a socket connection so can be run against an inactive server (server not in listen mode).

// Load modules
const Http = require('http');
const Shot = require('shot');
// Declare internals
const internals = {};
internals.main = function () {
    const dispatch = function (req, res) {
        const reply = 'Hello World';
        res.writeHead(200, { 'Content-Type': 'text/plain', 'Content-Length': reply.length });
    const server = Http.createServer(dispatch);
    Shot.inject(dispatch, { method: 'get', url: '/' }, (res) => {

Note how server.listen is never called.
