  • prism

    Turn any OpenAPI2/3 and Postman Collection file into an API server with mocking, transformations and validations. (by stoplightio)

  • Testing the UI in isolation with the help of a mock server is a good idea because it removes the need to setup the actual server for testing. Even with the help of Docker, setting up the real server is always complicated, as you'll have to set up databases, run migrations, load fixture data, and configure other third party dependencies. Unless you're a backend developer working on the backend, you shouldn't have to do that. There're many excellent API mock server frameworks: if you want to run it locally, I recommend prism. If you want to run it in the cloud, there are multiple choices, such as microapis.io (disclosure: I've built that service myself to allow mocking without needing an account or a subscription - if you end up using it, I'd very much welcome your feedback!).

  • dredd

    Language-agnostic HTTP API Testing Tool

  • To test the API, I recommend a proper API testing framework that can run a full test suite without you having to write a single test case. In this area, I recommend Dredd and schemathesis. These frameworks will get you covered when it comes to ensuring that the API server complies with the API specification. You may find Dredd a bit confusing at the beginning, in which case I recommend a tutorial I wrote a while ago about testing with Dredd. In addition, you can consider using just-apis, which allows you to define your own test cases for the API in YAML files (so no programming required).
