Fake implementations of your favourite Webmaker servers and APIs

Webfaker

Fake implementations of all your favourite Webmaker servers and APIs, including:

Webfaker is meant to aid in developing Webmaker code that depends on any/all of these services. It can be used as a library or started via the command-line.

$ npm install -g webfaker
$ webmaker
...
Started Webfaker services on http://localhost ports: node-hubble=10000, MakeAPI=10001, Login=10002

This will start all 3 servers on ports 10000, 10001, and 10002. You can use another series of ports by specifing a port in the command line. Other optional command line arguments include:

$ webmaker --port 5000 --fakes 1000 --username someone --password supersecret
  • port - the first of 3 ports to use for the servers
  • fakes - the number of fake records to insert into FakeAPI. NOTE: this will also cause matching fake Login accounts to get created.
  • username - username to use for basic auth between servers
  • password - password to use for basic auth between servers

The command line version uses a module to control the servers, which you can use as well. This is useful if you want to programmatically access the servers to start and stop them in testing or the like.

var Webfaker = require("webfaker");
 
Webfaker.start({
  port: 5000,
  username: "username",
  password: "password",
  fakes: 500
}, function() {
  console.log( "Started Webfaker services on http://localhost ports: node-hubble=%s, MakeAPI=%s, Login=%s",
               port, port + 1, port + 2 );
});
 
// do some things... 
 
Webfaker.stop();
