Wiremock NPM


This is Wiremock Standalone wrapped inside an NPM package. It relies only on dependencies found in NPM.

See: http://wiremock.org/docs/running-standalone/

Example - Command line

It can be used as a command line tool like this:

npx wiremock

Example - Mock API in frontend app

This example is in the repo in example-mock-api-with-express.

It starts a server with ExpressJS and delegates to a frontend and an API. When running npm run serve it will start this setup:

  |---[/api/*]-> http://localhost:8081/
    \-[*]------> http://localhost:8082/

So that:

  • http://localhost:8080/api/example Will serve the API with wiremock.
  • http://localhost:8080/whatever Will serve the frontend. This can be a Vue app or whatever.

Command line arguments

Available command line arguments npx wiremock --help:
