Reset middleware for json-server

NPM

Build status semantic-release js-standard-style Cypress.io tests renovate-app badge

Install

Requires Node version 8 or above (because of json-server@0.15 peer dependency).

npm install --save json-server-reset

Use

If you are using json-server, add this module as a middleware. For example, imagine our data file to be data.json with the following resources

{
  "todos": []
}

Then load the file and this middleware

json-server data.json --middlewares ./node_modules/json-server-reset

Then you can work with "todos" and reset the datastore (I am using httpie client in this examples)

$ http :3000/todos
[]
$ http POST :3000/todos text="do something"
{
    "id": 1,
    "text": "do something"
}
$ http POST :3000/todos text="do something else"
{
    "id": 2,
    "text": "do something else"
}
$ http :3000/todos
[
    {
        "id": 1,
        "text": "do something"
    },
    {
        "id": 2,
        "text": "do something else"
    }
]

Now reset the database back to the initial empty list of todos. Note := syntax to send the JSON as a list, not as a string.

$ http POST :3000/reset todos:=[]
$ http :3000/todos
[]

Debugging

Run this module with environment variable

DEBUG=json-server-reset
