Json variants

Variants of type json define the JSON body and the status code to be sent when a route is requested.


The options property in a variant of type json must be an object containing next properties:

  • status (Number): Status code to send.
  • body (Object): Object to send as body of the request response.
  • headers (Object): Object containing headers to set in the response. Optional.
module.exports = [
id: "get-users",
url: "/api/users",
method: "GET",
variants: [
id: "success",
type: "json", // variant of type json
options: {
status: 200, // status to send
headers: { // response headers to send
"x-custom-header": "foo-header-value",
body: [ // body to send
id: 1,
name: "John Doe"
id: 2,
name: "Jane Doe"

Response headers

By default, the json variant type sets a Content-Type header in the response with value application/json; charset=utf-8, but it can be changed using the headers option.
