Mock HTTP server

Project Description

Turq is a small HTTP server that can be scripted in a Python-based language. Use it to set up mock HTTP resources that respond with the status, headers, and body of your choosing. Turq is designed for quick interactive testing, but can be used in automated scenarios as well.

Lets you do things like

“RESTful API” resource with cross-origin support:

if route('/v1/products/:product_id'):
    if GET or HEAD:
        json({'id': product_id, 'inStock': True})
    elif PUT:
        json(request.json)      # As if we saved it
    elif DELETE:
    cors()      # Handles preflight requests automatically

Redirect to an index.php, which serves a gzipped, cacheable page after 3 seconds of “loading”:

if path == '/':

if path == '/index.php':
    header('Cache-Control', 'max-age=3600')

Stream server-sent events:

header('Content-Type', 'text/event-stream')
for i in range(9000):
    chunk('data: event number %d\r\n\r\n' % i)
