What is a placeholder API
Frandom is a JSON Placeholder fake REST API that is mainly used for prototyping and testing. The primary use of Frandom is to fake a server, sharing the code, and many such REST API uses are associated with it.
- You don’t need sign up so you can start using it right away
- No configuration required. Just make requests like you do for any other API
- It’s compatible with any frontend framework you use suh as React, Vue.js or Angular
Why mocking a backend service
Sometimes you need a quick prototype just to validate a new product or a new feature so you don’t need to worry about implementing a real backend but at the same time you want to make sure you can replace those calls to the API placeholder later.
