    A quick glance over the documentation certainly suggests it does.
    Oh that's handy, I have that installed but hadn't used it previously so am unaware of most features!
    Ta.

    Take a look at Postman it has a feature called mock server where you can type in the response you want from any given path and http verb.

    Either Node or Python can give you a quick-and-dirty web server good enough for non-production use:

    started a topic Quick and dirty out-of-the-box web-server

    Quick and dirty out-of-the-box web-server

    A lot of development work I do involves interacting with remote Web-APIs. Sometimes there is a simulator, but often I could get by with some hand-crafted JSON/XML files and just tell a noddy web-server to return a given file no matter what request it's given, or map a given URL to a static file.
    I'm not a web-dev or I'm sure this is trivial in PHP but I wonder can I use some standalone application to just run up and it is a web-server on 127.0.0.1:xxxx like I describe? Sort of the way Jenkins does in a way. I do not want to setting up IIS or Apache!

Working...
