Mockpy

Build Status

Mockpy is a python open source line utility to quickly create mock servers on Mac OS X. Mockpy is inspired by wiremock and uses libmproxy for the proxy functionality.

mockpy works by reading a list of configuration files in the YAML format, it uses these configurations to match the http request received and return an http response based on the matched YAML file configuration.

Why mockpy

  • You want a very lightweight utility to quickly create a mock API
  • No need to edit your app code as it uses proxy mocking
  • Works on top of proven technology (mitmproxy and cherrypi)
  • Update to the mock API are picked up from files without the need to start/restart the server again.

Installation

Mockpy can be installed as a python wheel using pip or as a standalone binary using homebrew

Installing with pip

Make sure you have pip installed.

Run the following to install mockpy

pip install mockpy

Installing using brew

Install using brew tap

brew tap oarrabi/tap
brew install mockpy

Usage

Bellow is a description of the basic operations that mockpy provides, for a more complete understanding please refer to the wikis.

Initialize a directory

Initialize a the current folder by running:

mockpy init

This will create two folders:

inout: this folder will contains a list of mapping YAML files, each YAML file represents an request and response operation.

res: resource folder contains the static HTML, JSON, Images and static files returned as part of the mocking process.

To understand the YAML file format, please refer to the documentation.

Start the mock server

The mock server can be started as a standalone web server, or as a proxy server.

Standalone web server

Use mockpy start to start the standalone web server, this will setup a server on the default port. Visit 127.0.0.1:9090 to check the mock server.

Proxy web server

To start mockpy in proxy server mode use mockpy start -x. This command does the following:

  • Starts a proxy server on '127.0.0.1:9090'
  • Sets the macs HTTP/HTTPS settings to the created proxy server.
