JSON Schema Markdown Tools

CircleCI

Documenting and validating complex JSON Schemas can be hard. This tool makes it easier by providing a number of scripts that can turn JSON Schema files into readable Markdown documentation that is ready for consumption on GitHub or processed using Jekyll or other static site generators.

These tools have been introduced by Adobe to document Adobe's Experience Data Models (XDM), but can be used for other JSON Schema documents, too.

Requirements

  • npm version 3.10.8 or up
  • node v6 or up

Example Output

Using the schemas in examples/schemas, the output in examples/docs has been generated.

Installing and running

# clone this project 
$ git clone git@github.com:adobe/jsonschema2md.git
 
# install dependencies 
cd jsonschema2md && npm install
 
# show usage information 
$ node cli.js
 
# run task 
$ node cli.js -d examples/schemas -o examples/docs
# generated output for whole folder is written to ./examples/docs 

Installing the jsonschema2md Command Line Tools

The JSON Schema Markdown tools also includes a convenient jsonschema2md command line tool that can be installed using:

$ npm link

The command line arguments are identical between the jsonschema2md binary and the cli.js node script.

Using JSON Schema Markdown Tools from npm

You can conveniently use the JSON Schema Markdown Tools from npm. This makes it possible to set up a conversion toolchain for your JSON Schema project that is driven entirely by npm. To do so, first define the dependency by adding this to your "devDependencies" section of package.json

  "devDependencies"{
    "jsonschema2md": "^1.0.1"
  }

Then add the following to the "scripts" section of your package.json and adapt accordingly:

"scripts"{
  "prepare": "mkdir -p docs/reference && jsonschema2md -o docs/reference -d schemas/draft-04
}

If you run npm install before running npm run prepare, npm will install the jsonschema2md in a node_modules/.bin path, even if you did not install the JSON Schema Markdown beforehand.

Tests

Ensure you have all the dependencies installed via npm install, then run:

npm test

This will run our Jasmine test suite as well as lint the JavaScript according to our style guide (see below).

CI

Continuous integration runs on CircleCI. All pull requests automatically trigger a job that runs the tests by executing the config.yml.

Code Coverage

You can run npm run cover to get a code coverage report, that is, a sense of how much of the project's code is "covered" by the test suite.

Style Guide / Linting

This project uses eslint to enforce JavaScript coding style. To run the linter:

npm run lint

TODOs

  • JSON Schema validation:
    • property naming convention
    • vocabulary spellchecking
