Getting Started

requires a node version >= 6 and an npm version >= 3.x.x

we use Koa as middleware

we do provide a help command to display all possible arguments

# Installs the Mango API
npm i @axelspringer/mango-api -g

# Starts the Mango API in Mock modus
mango-api -d


most command line arguments have a reflection in environment variables, which allows it to be easily tested and developed in many environments

const api = require('@axelspringer/mango-api');

function mocks(axios, config) {
  let adapter = new api.MockAdapter(axios, config);
  adapter.get(api.WP.Posts, require('./data/posts.json')).reply(200);
