httpmock Build Status

Easy mocking of http responses from external resources.

Update December 2016 Due to this library not receiving updates for more than a year, a new V1 branch has been created that is now the most current branch with the latest changes. The new changes are not compatible with older Go versions (1.5 and below) so the branch was created to prevent breaking projects out in the wild :-)

Install

Two versions are available:

V0. (not maintained, not recommended) Supports Go 1.3 to 1.7. Uses the current master branch to prevent breaking existing projects using this library.

go get github.com/jarcoal/httpmock

V1. (Active, recommended) Currently supports Go 1.7 - 1.10. Uses gopkg to read from v1 branch:

go get gopkg.in/jarcoal/httpmock.v1

You can also use vendoring for the v1 branch if you feel so inclined.

Simple Example:

func TestFetchArticles(t *testing.T) {
	httpmock.Activate()
	defer httpmock.DeactivateAndReset()

	httpmock.RegisterResponder("GET", "https://api.mybiz.com/articles.json",
		httpmock.NewStringResponder(200, `[{"id": 1, "name": "My Great Article"}]`))

	// do stuff that makes a request to articles.json
}

Advanced Example:

func TestFetchArticles(t *testing.T) {
	httpmock.Activate()
	defer httpmock.DeactivateAndReset()

	// our database of articles
	articles := make([]map[string]interface{}, 0)

	// mock to list out the articles
	httpmock.RegisterResponder("GET", "https://api.mybiz.com/articles.json",
		func(req *http.Request) (*http.Response, error) {
			resp, err := httpmock.NewJsonResponse(200, articles)
			if err != nil {
				return httpmock.NewStringResponse(500, ""), nil
			}
			return resp, nil
		},
	)

	// mock to add a new article
	httpmock.RegisterResponder("POST", "https://api.mybiz.com/articles.json",
		func(req *http.Request) (*http.Response, error) {
			article := make(map[string]interface{})
			if err := json.NewDecoder(req.Body).Decode(&article); err != nil {
				return httpmock.NewStringResponse(400, ""), nil
			}

			articles = append(articles, article)

			resp, err := httpmock.NewJsonResponse(200, article)
			if err != nil {
				return httpmock.NewStringResponse(500, ""), nil
			}
			return resp, nil
		},
	)

	// do stuff that adds and checks articles
}

Ginkgo Example:

// article_suite_test.go

import (
	// ...
	"github.com/jarcoal/httpmock"
)
// ...
var _ = BeforeSuite(func() {
	// block all HTTP requests
	httpmock.Activate()
})

var _ = BeforeEach(func() {
	// remove any mocks
	httpmock.Reset()
})

var _ = AfterSuite(func() {
	httpmock.DeactivateAndReset()
})


// article_test.go

import (
	// ...
	"github.com/jarcoal/httpmock"
)

var _ = Describe("Articles", func() {
	It("returns a list of articles", func() {
		httpmock.RegisterResponder("GET", "https://api.mybiz.com/articles.json",
			httpmock.NewStringResponder(200, `[{"id": 1, "name": "My Great Article"}]`))

		// do stuff that makes a request to articles.json
	})
})

Ginkgo + Resty Example:

// article_suite_test.go

import (
	// ...
	"github.com/jarcoal/httpmock"
	"github.com/go-resty/resty"
)
// ...
var _ = BeforeSuite(func() {
	// block all HTTP requests
	httpmock.ActivateNonDefault(resty.DefaultClient.GetClient())
})

var _ = BeforeEach(func() {
	// remove any mocks
	httpmock.Reset()
})

var _ = AfterSuite(func() {
	httpmock.DeactivateAndReset()
})


// article_test.go

import (
	// ...
	"github.com/jarcoal/httpmock"
	"github.com/go-resty/resty"
)

var _ = Describe("Articles", func() {
	It("returns a list of articles", func() {
		fixture := `{"status":{"message": "Your message", "code": 200}}`
		responder, err := httpmock.NewJsonResponder(200, fixture)
		fakeUrl := "https://api.mybiz.com/articles.json"
		httpmock.RegisterResponder("GET", fakeUrl, responder)

		// fetch the article into struct
		articleObject := &models.Article{}
		_, err := resty.R().SetResult(articleObject).Get(fakeUrl)
		
		// do stuff with the article object ...
	})
})
