[Fixed] Add intentional latency in express


Im using express with node.js, and testing certain routes. I’m doing this tute at http://coenraets.org/blog/2012/10/creating-a-rest-api-using-node-js-express-and-mongodb/

Im calling the http://localhost:3000/wines via ajax (the content doesn’t matter). But I want to test latency. Can I do something like make express respond after 2 seconds? (I want to simulate the ajax loader and I’m running on localhost so my latency is pretty much nil)


Just call res.send inside of a setTimeout:

setTimeout((() => {
}), 2000)
