From reading the docs and the source, it's not a proxy. It looks like it uses https://github.com/pretenderjs/pretender , which overwrites the original `XmlHttpRequest` and `fetch` functions in the browser to intercept any attempts to make AJAX requests. It then makes your attempted request with its own internal routing definitions, and returns the responses you defined.

Ah thank you!
