Nap Time

Teddy Bear Taking a Nap

The laziest app you've ever used. Guaranteed, or your money back.

This simple app will sleep for a specified amount of time and then return a generic response. Nap Time is a useful tool for when you need to simulate slow third-party server responses or handle timeouts in your API wrappers.


  • Configure server.json with the port you want to listen on.
  • Start the server using Commandbox: server start
  • Make a request to the server and append the number of seconds you want to sleep for in the path like this{port}/{sleep}/
  • Example:

The server will sleep for the number of seconds specified in the sleep parameter and then return a generic JSON response object. The default sleep time is set to 30 seconds if no sleep parameter is specified in the path.

Sample Response

    error: false,
    data: "",
    messages: [
        "What a nice 30 second nap"
