There many tools for testing REST APIs by mimicking a client, but I need the other side- test my client. I wrote a simple server using Flask, but I was hoping for something that includes builtin logging, scripting and configuration out of the box with no need for coding.

    mock-server.com will enable checking how your client reacts to different service responses, including illegal and expected error responses. But it required Java coding.

  • You can use Properties files for MockServer to implement it as well. I often use MockServer to do a MITM attack on the SUT using it's proxy capabilities and then verify the data being sent and returned. If you submitted this as an answer I would definitely upvote it.

Interfake is another option. You can create HTTP servers from a JSON file or through a straightforward JS API.


Have a look at Frisbyjs. It is built on top of node.js and Jasmin suitable for end2ent testing.
I would say easy to config and use.

  • Frisbyjs seems to be what I am not looking for, it's a tool for testing a server's API. I want to test a client that sends requests, not receive them.

    There are a number of tools you can use - searching for "mock api" gives a number of options. There's also jsonplaceholder.typicode.com which is a freely available REST service you can use to test your client.
