  • Mocking With Undici Like a Pro
    2 projects | | 14 Jan 2022
    Because Undici re-invents HTTP primitives and relies directly on sockets, our established mocking approaches like Nock no longer work. Luckily, Undici comes with its own built-in mocks, so we can still write unit tests against it. This post goes into detail into Undici’s mocking support, walking you through specific use-cases and examples.
