Accelerate API development with realistic mock servers, powered by OpenAPI documents.
Prism is an open-source HTTP mock server that can emulate your API's behavior as if you already built it. Mock HTTP servers are generated from your OpenAPI v2/v3 documents.
Embrace the power of early feedback by incorporating user input during the design phase of your API, rather than waiting until after the code is written. This proactive approach significantly reduces the cost of change, allowing you to quickly iterate and refine your API based on real-world insights and requirements.
Static examples in mock APIs can bias the way you write the code and test the API. Prism generates dynamic, random examples based on your API description, ensuring validity and versatility.
Prism validates both request and response data. If your specification contains an invalid example or your request isn't compliant with your API description, Prism can flag it for you, without yelling, we promise.
Go beyond standard API interactions with Prism. OpenAPI v3.0 allows API designers to define callbacks and construct URLs for payload delivery. Prism supports this functionality, enabling you to integrate callbacks even before the API is built.
Identify discrepancies between the OpenAPI document and target API to help frontend developers integrating with your API. Enable the proxy in pre-prod environments to ensure that OpenAPI documents and code stay in sync.
