Weld

Full fake REST API generator.

weldmock' current version badge Build Status codecov

This project is heavily inspired by json-server, written with rust.

Synopsis

Our first aim is to generate a fake api from the given data source (JSON). It may have bugs, missing features but if you contribute they all will be fixed.

Installation

  1. Download and install Rust from here
  2. Download and install Cargo from here
  3. Clone and run the project.
git clone https://github.com/serayuzgur/weld.git
cd weld
cargo run

Usage

Running

Executable can take configuration path otherwise it will use default ./weld.json. If we take project folder as root, commands should look like one of these. If you you use cargo build --release version change debug with release.

./target/debug/weld  
./target/debug/weld weld.json
./target/debug/weld <path_to_config>.json

./target/release/weld  
./target/release/weld weld.json
./target/release/weld <path_to_config>.json

Configuration

Configuration file is a very simple json file which is responsible to hold server and database properties.

{
    "server": {
        "host": "127.0.0.1",
        "port": 8080
    },
    "database": {
        "path": "db.json"
    }
}

Database

Database is a simple json file.

{
    "owner": {
        "name": "seray",
        "surname": "uzgur"
    },
    "posts": [
        {
            "author": {
                "name": "seray",
                "surname": "uzgur"
            },
            "body": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero.",
            "id": 1,
            "tags": [
                {
                    "id": 1,
                    "name": "tech"
                },
                {
                    "id": 2,
                    "name": "web"
                }
            ],
            "title": "Rust Rocks!"
        },
        {
            "author": {
                "name": "kamil",
                "surname": "bukum"
            },
            "body": "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero.",
            "id": 2,
            "tags": [
                {
                    "id": 1,
                    "name": "tech"
                },
                {
                    "id": 2,
                    "name": "web"
                }
            ],
            "title": "TypeScript is Awesome"
        }
    ],
    "version": "10.1.1"
}

Here the owner and posts are tables. They can be empty arrays/objects but they must exist as is.

NOTE : id: Column is a must, all parsing uses it.

API

Api usage is pretty simple. For now it does not support filters one other query params. Here is the list of the calls you can make with examples.

  • Get List <host>:<port>/<table> GET
  • Get Record <host>:<port>/<table>/<id> GET
  • Insert Record <host>:<port>/<table> POST
  • Update Record <host>:<port>/<table>/<id> PUT
  • Delete Record <host>:<port>/<table>/<id> DELETE
  • Get Nested <host>:<port>/<table>/<id><field>/<id>... GET

Query API

Field selection

Give the API consumer the ability to choose returned fields. This will also reduce the network traffic and speed up the usage of the API.

GET /cars?fields=manufacturer,model,id,color
Paging
GET /cars?_offset=10&_limit=5
  • Add _offset and _limit (an X-Total-Count header is included in the response).

  • To send the total entries back to the user use the custom HTTP header: X-Total-Count.

  • Content-Range offset – limit / count.

    • offset: Index of the first element returned by the request.

    • limit: Index of the last element returned by the request.

    • count: Total number of elements in the collection.

  • Accept-Range resource max.

  • resource: The type of pagination. Must remind of the resource in use, e.g: client, order, restaurant, …

  • max : Maximum number of elements that can be returned in a single request.

Sorting
  • Allow ascending and descending sorting over multiple fields.
  • Use sort with underscore as _sort.
  • In code, descending describe as -, ascending describe as +.

GET /cars?_sort=-manufactorer,+model

Operators
  • Add _filter query parameter and continue with field names,operations and values separated by ,.
  • Pattern _filter=<fieldname><operation><value>.
  • Supported operations.
    • = equal
    • != not equal
    • < less
    • <= less or equals
    • > greater
    • >= greater or equals
    • ~= like
    • |= in (values must be separated with |

GET http://127.0.0.1:8080/robe/users?_filter=name=seray,active=true

Full-text search
  • Add _q.

GET /cars?_q=nissan
