A simple mock api helper that simulate GET, PUT, DELETE, POST requests and store it to a json folder.


Install via composer

composer require blok/laravel-mock

Register Service Provider

Note! This and next step are optional if you use laravel>=5.5 with package auto discovery feature.

Add service provider to config/app.php in providers section


Register Facade

Register package facade in config/app.php in aliases section


Publish Configuration File

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Blok\Mock\ServiceProvider" --tag="config"


Folder mode

Let's say that you have this in your mock folder

|- users
|-- 1.json
|-- 2.json

If you make that requests :

GET /mock/users it will return :

    "1" : {
      "id" : 1,
      "name" : "foo"
    "2" : {
      "id" : 2,
      "name" : "bar"

GET /mock/users/1 will return :

      "id" : 1,
      "name" : "foo"

PUT /mock/users/1 will save your request into /mock/users/1.json

DELETE /mock/users/1 will delete your request in /mock/users/1.json

Factory mode

If you see the config/mock.php you will see a commented array in entrypoints.

If you uncommented that you will be able to call your factory for the model you want.

=> if enabled it will return mock data from your factories instead from json.

Test a FormRequest or mock a validation

You can easily test your FormRequest or Validation by adding in the entrypoint "$action$_validation" in your config file => it could receive an array or a FormRequest.

Force to json

By default, the config will only accept json request, but if you want for some reason disable or test a redirection instead. You can do it in your config file (at a global or in the method level of the controller).
