first step

make a directory named "data" in the root directory

second step

webserver config:
var gulp = require('gulp');
var mockServer = require('gulp-mock-server');

gulp.task('mock', function() {
      port: 8090
put a json file such as "test.json" in the "/data" directory

third step

visit url => localhost:8090/test
so easy!


Key | Type | Default | Description | --- | --- | --- | --- | host | String | localhost | hostname of the webserver port | Number | 8000 | port of the webserver path | String | / | path to the webserver mockDir | String | ./data | mock directory livereload | Boolean/Object | false | whether to use livereload. For advanced options, provide an object. You can use the 'port' property to set a custom live reload port and the filter function to filter out files to watch. The object also needs to set enable property to true (e.g. enable: true) in order to activate the livereload mode. It is off by default. directoryListing | Boolean/Object | false | whether to display a directory listing. For advanced options, provide an object with the 'enable' property set to true. You can use the 'path' property to set a custom path or the 'options' property to set custom serve-index
options. fallback | String | undefined | file to fall back to (relative to webserver root) open | Boolean/String | false | open the localhost server in the browser. By providing a String you can specify the path to open (for complete path, use the complete url http://my-server:8080/public/) . https | Boolean/Object | false | whether to use https or not. By default, gulp-webserver provides you with a development certificate but you remain free to specify a path for your key and certificate by providing an object like this one: {key: 'path/to/key.pem', cert: 'path/to/cert.pem'}. proxies | Array | []| a list of proxy objects. Each proxy object can be specified by {source: '/abc', target: 'http://localhost:8080/abc', options: {headers: {'ABC_HEADER': 'abc'}}}. allowCrossOrigin | Boolean | false| whether to allow cross origin calls (CORS)
