mockit-express

Master Build

Http API mock router for express application

Install

npm i mockit-express express body-parser
# to enable yaml file format support 
npm i js-yaml
# to enable faker support 
npm i faker
# to enable proxy support 
npm i express-request-proxy
# to enable file watching and auto-reload support 
npm i chokidar
# to enable nock support 
npm i -D nock

Usage

const mockit = require("mockit-express");
const router = mockit("/path/routes/config/file");
app.use("/api/v1", router);

Watch config file change and reload automatically

const router = mockit("/path/routes/config/file", (err, changed) => {
  if (err) {
    console.error("failed to load config file", err);
  } else if (changed) {
    console.log("file changed");
  } else {
    console.warn("file removed");
  }
});

Pass routes directly

const router = mockit({ "GET /api/v1/account": { code: 200 } });

Use db instance

const db = new mockit.Database();
db.load("/path/routes/config/file");
const router = mockit(db);

Proxy Header Variables

$host

Proxy remote host name

$remote_addr

Client request IP

$proxy_add_x_forwarded_for

Concat client X-Forwarded-For header(if exists) with Client IP

$http_{name}

Request header field in snakecase

e.g.

$http_user_agent returns client header User-Agent

Interpolation

Expressions encaptured by ${ and } in body field will be interpolated.

Basic

"${'string field'}" => "string field"

${1 + 1} => 2

"${'\{using curly braces inside interpolation\}'}" => "{using curly braces inside interpolation}"

Accessing params, query, body and headers

params keeps the passed-in parameters in route url, query stores request query string values, body and headers hold request body and headers respectively

Definition: /api/v1/items/:id

Request URL: /api/v1/items/12?color=red

Request Headers: {'x-version':'1.31'}

Request body: '{"count": 9}'

${params.id} => 12

${query.color} => "red"

${body.data} => {"count": 9}

${headers['x-version']} => "1.31"

Faking data

faker is a thirdparty library

${faker.random.number()} => 1289

${faker.random.number} => 4096

the first example calls a function and returns the result

the second example returns a function which will be called without context

"${faker.name.firstName}" => "James"

$faker is an additional function which can be called to use a specific locale(for the current context only)

"${$faker('zh_CN').name.firstName}" => "朱"

see faker for reference

Test

npm test

Integrate into Webpack

const mockit = require("mockit-express");
//...
module.exports = {
  //...
  devServer: {
    after: function(app) {
      app.use(mockit("/path/routes/file"));
    }
  }
};

Integrate with nock

Proxy routes and routes with params are not supported when using nock. 'ALL' method is also forbidden

load a file

const nockit = require("mockit-express/nock");
const scope = nockit("http://domain.com", "/path/to/routes/file");
// alias for nock.cleanAll()
scope.stop();
// alias for nock.restore()
scope.pause();
// alias for nock.activate()
scope.activate();

Load existing data

nockit("http://domain.com", db);
nockit("http://domain.com", {
  "GET /api/v1/test": {
    code: 200,
    delay: 1000,
    body: "success"
  }
});

Add to exising nock scope

nockit.mount(scope, route);
