core.server

Preface

The core.server object provides methods allowing to control the internal HTTP server.

caution

Use only the API methods described in this docs. Use other methods under your own risk, and take into account that they may change in minor versions without considering it as a breaking change.

API

restart()

core.server.restart(): Restart the HTTP server.

Example
await core.server.restart();

addRouter()

core.server.addRouter(path, expressRouter): Add a custom express router to the server. Custom routers are added just before the middleware that serves the mock routes, so if a custom router path matches with a route path, the first one will have priority.

  • path (String): Api path for the custom router
  • expressRouter (Express Router): Instance of an Express router.
Example
const express = require("express");

const customRouter = express.Router();

core.server.addRouter("/custom-path", customRouter);

removeRouter()

core.server.removeRouter(path, expressRouter): Remove a custom Express router previously added with the core.server.addRouter method.

  • path(String): Api path of the custom router to be removed.
  • expressRouter (Express Router): Instance of the express router to be removed.
Example
const express = require("express");

const customRouter = express.Router();

core.server.addRouter("/custom-path", customRouter);
core.server.removeRouter("/custom-path", customRouter);

protocol

core.server.protocol: Returns currently used protocol ("http" or "https") depending if HTTPS is enabled or not.

Example
console.log(core.server.protocol) // -> http

url

core.server.url: Returns current server base url. If the host equals to 0.0.0.0 (its default value), it is replaced by localhost

Example
console.log(core.server.url) // -> http://localhost:3100
