toml ripoff of json-server, using LuaSocket



lua server.lua [TOML FILE]


Create a server.toml file

id = 1
title = "toml-server"
author = "jonstoler"

id = 1
body = "some comment"
postId = 1

Start TOML Server (it will automatically update if you change your toml file)

toml-server server.toml

Now if you go to http://localhost:3000/posts/1, you'll get

id = 1
author = "jonstoler"
title = "toml-server"

TOML Server only processes GET requests.


Based on the previous server.toml file, here are all the available routes.

GET /posts
GET /posts/1
GET /posts/1/id
GET /posts/1/title
GET /posts/1/author
GET /comments
GET /comments/1
GET /comments/1/id
GET /comments/1/body
GET /comments/1/postId

There are also built-in special routes in the underscore directory:

GET /_/kill -> kills the server
GET /_/dump -> dumps the contents of your toml file, unprocessed
