"An api to go, please."

Make a fake api without a line of code for development purposes

Work in progress

I wanna help!

You can help this project by:

  • Taking a look on the desired features below and implementing it.

  • Help/suggestions are appreciated. Feel free to open an issue with any suggestion.

  • Using and giving feedback


There are two motivations that made me create this project:

  • Prototyping SPAs.

    Each time that I need to create a SPA for an API that was designed but still not implemented I need to create my on server to provide the data needed to test.

  • Third Part APIs running locally

    Each time that I have a project that relies on third part apis I have problems to run it locally.

That's why I am working on this app so next time that I need some simple API. I gonna just get an api to go.


It implements a bunch of endpoits by default for you to use.

Json Api

Create a collection file inside the folder, for instance, posts.json with the follow format:

  "data": [
    { "id": 1, "title": "Some post" },
    { "id": 2, "title": "Awesome post" },
    { "id": 3, "title": "Another post" }

Run the apitogo in the same folder:

apitogo run

That's it! Here is your api to go, sir. Try out:

curl -XGET http://localhost:8080/posts


curl -XGET http://localhost:8080/posts/1

It runs by default at port 8080 and for each json file inside the folder it is going to create a endpoint like this:

  • /posts returns all data from inside the file
  • /posts/:id returns an object from inside the file

Authentication API

It implements a basic oauth2 server also you can use for development

  • /authorize for webclients authorizations
  • /token for token requests

Default client_id: 1234 and client_secret: apitogo1234

Future implementations

  • Json API

    • Json endpoint from files
    • Filter by id
    • Query by parameters
    • Restfull Api (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE)
    • Sort
    • Limit
    • Follow json:api standards
    • Graphql support
  • Authentication API

    • Oauth2 (token)
    • Basic (user/password)
    • Custom Clients ID/Keys
    • Login Page
  • Websocket API

    • Create/connect channels
  • Webhooks API

    • configure callback requests endpoint
  • Customization

    • Routes
    • Schema
  • Distribution

    • Installation pack for brew
    • Installation Script for linux
  • Others

    • Travis
