Welcome to Mimic’s documentation!

Mimic is an API-compatible mock service for Openstack Compute and Rackspace’s implementation of Identity and Cloud Load Balancers. It is backed by in-memory data structure rather than a potentially expensive database.

Mimic helps with:

  • fast set-up
  • instant response
  • cost efficient
  • enables offline development
  • enables ability to test unusual behaviors/errors of an api
  • acts as a central repository for mocked responses from services
