Article Overview

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 Sandbox.

Sandbox

Sandbox is a complex and expensive tool that really allows you to create a wide array of scenarios, and include state inside of your endpoints, but for 90% of use cases is unnecessarily complex, and by using code and custom scripting it is harder to onboard new users to your existing projects.

Conclusion

So we can see that even with a much more expensive service like Sandbox, Mockadillo offers more features, and the only thing lacking is a complex scripting interface. While that can give you an advantage in some scenarios, in 90% it just creates more complexity. Feel free to give us a try and see for yourself by signing up for a free account
