json-server makes it extremely easy to setup robust JSON apis to use for demos and proof of concepts. John walks you through the process of using pre-built json files for a server and how to generate larger datasets using lodash and faker.

Great tutorial. More node related tutorials like this would be fantastic. I didn't know about faker or json-server. Will be using them both in future.

Hi John,

Thanks for the video, json-server is a great tool. I chose to replicate the REST stub approach on the client-side, and came out with FakeRest, which is kind of like json-server... without server.

It really helps e2e testing, especially CI setup.

I watched the video after receiving the email and never knew this project existed. My needs were a little different since we work with Spring on the backend and get different looking results. In case anyone is need I shared it here: https://github.com/hatemjaber/json-server-hypermedia
