Flake is a daemon to mimic your yet-to-be-built or wired in daemon. It takes a markdown file full of route and request info and returns responses based off that. In fact, this very file is a valid Flake definitions file! So let's define some stuff.

What this does:

What we're making

Get the info on GET /api/info!

To start a "section", create a title with pound signs. In that title, have a string in the format ACTION PATH (including the backticks). Everything else in the title is ignored. And, of course, any content in the readme (such as this content!) will be ignored.

    "author": "Connor Peet",
    "package": "flake"

We just defined a response! Now, whenever you send a GET request to /api/info, that JSON up there can be returned. It doesn't have to be JSON, of course, it can be anything you'd like.

Let's make another route POST /api/cookies

You can also define specific requests and responses to those requests by creating a title called "request" or "response". For example, this route will only respond to:


    "type": "Macadamia Nut",
    "to": "connor4312"


You can make your own response. Note that you can define a route multiple times with multiple different requests and responses!
