Many businesses are shifting to API-first development and micro-service-based architectures to reduce team dependency and accelerate growth. Mock APIs can be used to improve this even further. MockingCloud is an adeptly fully managed REST API mocking solution that is highly scalable and loaded with features. No more running your own dummy servers.
MockingCloud creates a mock server URL from relevant Open API spec (yaml/json) you actually own or from a pool of over 2500 open-source OpenAPI projects, which you can share with other development teams. This enables frontend, dependent microservice development and testing to take place concurrently, allowing products and services to reach the market faster.
Features of MockingCloud
- We enable the reputed industry-standard OpenAPI 3.0.x and 2.x (swagger) in both JSON formats & YAML OpenAPI 3.1.x support will be added soon.
Native to the Cloud
- MockingCloud manages the API servers; you’ll need a URL to make calls to.
- No additional headers are required to consume your mock APIs, and your assets are securely stored in the cloud.
- guru powers a marketplace with over 2350 OpenAPI documents.
- Mock API responses are fast by default, ~250ms; however, you can actually add a delay too.
Do I require any additional API keys or request headers?
No, when you create a project in MockingCloud, you will be assigned a unique URL; replace the API base/host URL in your code/config. All of your calls will be tracked against that specific URL. There are no additional API headers or keys required.
How quick are API responses?
Most API responses are under 200ms; however, if you would like to simulate delays, you can do so as well.
Can I include CORS headers?
Yes, once you enable CORS at the project level, you can add all available CORS headers.
Is it possible to randomize or customize API responses?
Yes, depending on how you configure your endpoint in MockingCloud, you can do that. By default, your responses will be OpenAPI spec examples; however, you can configure them to be random values in OpenAPI spec responses, en customizes different responses for various demand parameter configurations.
Can I work together with my team?
Yes, we help team collaboration; you can add teammates, and they can customize API responses for existing projects, create new projects, and so on.
Is my payment information safe?
MockingCloud processes all payments through Stripe. Your card information will be wholly stored in Stripe’s systems, and you can actually manage your payment methods through the app’s Stripe Billing console.
