Importing and using a simulationΒΆ

In this tutorial we are going to import the simulation we created in the previous tutorial.

hoverctl start
hoverctl import simulation.json

Hoverfly can also import simulation data that is stored on a remote host via HTTP:

hoverctl import https://example.com/example.json

Make a request with cURL, using Hoverfly as a proxy.

curl --proxy localhost:8500 http://time.jsontest.com

This outputs the time at the time the request was captured.

{
   "time": "02:07:28 PM",
   "milliseconds_since_epoch": 1482242848562,
   "date": "12-20-2016"
}

Stop Hoverfly:

hoverctl stop
