Runtime-Mock-Routes

Runtime-Mock-Routes is a nodejs application for defining parameterized route and response bodies. This is ideal for mocking 3rd party services.

Installation

Use the package manager npm or yarn to install Runtime-Mock-Routes.

npm install -g @centeredgesoft/runtime-mock-routes

Usage

runtime-mock-routes -p 8080 -s ./seed.json

All command line options are optional. If a seed file is supplied, it must be one of the following

  • a json file that matches a RuntimeRequestCollection
  • a js file with a default export of type RuntimeRequestCollection
  • a js file with a default export of a function that returns a RuntimeRequestCollection
type SupportedMethodsType = ['GET', 'POST', 'PUT', 'PATCH', 'DELETE'];
const SupportedMethodsColection: SupportedMethodsType = ['GET', 'POST', 'PUT', 'PATCH', 'DELETE'];
type SupportedMethod = SupportedMethodsType[number];

export interface RuntimeRequestMethodBody {
    body: any;
    status?: number;
    headers?: Record<string, string>;
}

export type RuntimeRequestMethodBodyCollection = Partial<Record<SupportedMethod, RuntimeRequestMethodBody>>;

export interface RuntimeRequestBody {
    path: string;
    methods: RuntimeRequestMethodBodyCollection;
}

export interface RuntimeRequestCollection {
    [path: string]: RuntimeRequestBody;
}

For example:

{
    "/test":{
        "path":"/test",
        "methods":{
            "GET": {
                "body": {},
                "status": 200,
                "headers": {
                    "X-Custom-Header": "yes"
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

The following environment variables can also be used in place of command line options

RUNTIME_MOCK_ROUTES_PORT=8080
RUNTIME_MOCK_ROUTES_FILE_PATH=/seed.json

Route parameters are specified in path via a colon followed by the parameter name. '/users/:id'

Template strings that are compatible with handlebars can be used for the body property of a RuntimeRequestMethodBody. The application will use path and query params as data for the tempalte. This application makes use of faker and chance as Handlebars Helpers.

{{params.<path-param-name>}} {{query.<query-param-name>}} 
{{body.<post-body-property>}}
{{headers.<header-property-name>}}
{{ faker "lorem.words" 5}} {{ chance "guid"}}

If the rendered template is valid JSON, the response will be of type application/json.

Also, be aware that instead of a direct JSON response, the body can also be a function that takes in a RequestParameters and returns a body response. The response will still be processed through handlebars.

Routes

  • GET / returns all of the currently defined routes
  • POST / Takes a RuntimeRequestBody and adds it to the collection or updates the existing entry if it exists.
  • PUT / Takes a RuntimeRequestCollection and replaces the current collection.
  • [GET,POST,PUT,PATCH,DELETE] /* The result of retrieving an entry in the collection, 404 otherwise
  • DELETE /?path=<path> Deletes items from the collection
