I’m working on an application that reaches out to a web service. I’d
like to develop a proxy class that returns a fake response from the
service, so I don’t have to constantly be hitting it with requests while
I’m developing/testing other parts of the app.
My application is expecting a response generated via Net::HTTP.
response = Net::HTTP.get(URI.parse('http://foo.com')) case response when Net::HTTPOK # do something fun when Net::HTTPUnauthorized # you get the idea
How can I manufacture a response object, give it all the right headers,
return a body string, etc? I assumed I need to use Net::HTTPResponse,
but I can’t find any documentation on creating an instance without going
through a request.
I’d like it to work like this:
response = ProxyClass.response_object case response when Net::HTTPOk # my app doesn't know it's being lied to
