Mock anything

The power to say "when my app asks for X from server Y, give it Z".

X, Y, and Z can be basically anything, including random garbage or delayed responses, and you can define them via UI or JavaScript.

Screamless integration

Swap mock servers into your app, even in production, without changing any code.

Use technologies you already understand and decouple your forehead from your desk.

How it works

dns
Create a mock API in the Pointed dashboard.
It will be immediately provisioned and available. https only. Authentication optional.
cloud_done
Define endpoints and responses in the Pointed dashboard.
Using either the UI or JavaScript, define endpoints and what kind of things they should return. Also immediately available.
swap_horiz
Start making requests.
Optionally, use the Pointed Proxy browser extension to tell your app which requests to point at a Pointed mock API, without changing any app code.
