    An example for mocking swagger definition schema

    // basic usage
    var Parser = require('swagger-mock-parser')
    var parser = new Parser();
    var schema = definition.schema;
    return parser.parse(schema);
    // useExample option
    var Parser = require('swagger-mock-parser')
    // set useExample true will return every property's example which has already defined
    var parser = new Parser({useExample: true});
    var schema = {type: 'string', example: 'will return example first'}
    return parser.parse(schema);
    // useObjectKey option
    var Parser = require('swagger-mock-parser')
    // set useObjectKey true will return every Object property's name as the string value,but useExample is prior
    var parser = new Parser({useExample: true, useObjectKey: true});
    var hasExampleSchema ={
        type: 'object',
        properties: {
            objectKeyName: {type: 'string', example: 'useExample prior'}
    var noExampleSchema ={
        type: 'object',
        properties: {
            objectKeyName: {type: 'string', example: ''}
    // this will return { objectKeyName: 'useExample prior' }
    return parser.parse(hasExampleSchema);
    // this will return { objectKeyName: 'objectKeyName' }
    return parser.parse(noExampleSchema);

    Specifying custom Chance options

    Swagger specifies only a few primitive types; for scenarios where specific chance methods are needed, use the x-chance-type field.

            type: string
            x-chance-type: name
            type: string
            x-chance-type: guid

    Most of the chance methods allow some fine-tuning of the returned data. For example, the integer method allows specification of minimum and maximum output values. These options can be configured in the Swagger YAML file with the x-chance-options block:

          $ref: '#/definitions/NewPet'
            - id
                type: integer
                format: int64
                  min: 1
                  max: 1000

    A note on types:

    All of the primitive types defined in the Swagger specification are supported except for file and password. Currently, the format property is ignored; use x-chance-type instead. The server will error on any request with a type other than one of the primitive types if there is no valid x-chance-type also defined.

    Returning Fixed Values

    Although not a chance method, support has been added for returning fixed values using x-chance-type: fixed. Any value given for the custom tag x-type-value will be returned; below is an example where an object is returned:

          type: object
          x-chance-type: fixed
            type: 'adopted'
