In this series of articles we will attempt to compare Mockadillo with several API mocking services. For this article, we will be comparing Mockadillo’s features and pricing against Castle Mock.
Castle Mock is a basic self hosted tool that allows you to mock endpoints. With more control comes more responsibility though. Castle Mock is a fine solution if you don’t mind self hosted solutions, and as we support open source projects, you should definitely consider it. But for a small fee for a Basic plan, Mockadillo offers a lot more, and is easier to use. Plus you don’t have to worry about the infrastructure.
