Development interface

@ng-apimock/dev-interface is the development interface for @ng-apimock/core.

The development interface is a small web application that connects to the @ng-apimock/core middelware and exposes all its features in the ui.

Requirements

see Ng-apimock requirements

Installing using npm / yarn

npm install @ng-apimock/dev-interface --save-dev

or

yarn add @ng-apimock/dev-interface --dev

Usage

Once the plugin has been installed, you can require it with this line of JavaScript:

const devInterface = require('@ng-apimock/dev-interface');

Middleware

The final step to take is to register @ng-apimock/core as middleware. It is compatible with both Connect and Express

const connect = require('connect');
const app = connect();
app.use('/dev-interface/', serveStatic(devInterface));

or

const express = require('express');
const app = express();
app.use('/dev-interface', express.static(devInterface));

Minimal setup example

This is a minimal setup example of how you can manually use @ng-apimock/core

const apimock = require('@ng-apimock/core');
const devInterface = require('@ng-apimock/dev-interface');
const express = require('express');
const app = express();
app.set('port', 9999);
apimock.processor.process({
src: 'mocks'
});
app.use(apimock.middleware);
app.use('/dev-interface', express.static(devInterface));
app.listen(app.get('port'), () => {
console.log('@ng-apimock/core running on port', app.get('port'));
console.log('@ng-apimock/dev-interface is available under /dev-interface');
});

To start up the script just type:

node serve.js

The development interface can now be used by navigating to http://localhost:9000/dev-interface.
