typescript-json-schema

npm version

Generate json-schemas from your Typescript sources.

I sincerely suggest you use the original repository, as this repository/package is forked for demanding of myself (study and customization).

Features

  • Compiles your Typescript program to get complete type information.
  • Translates required properties, extends, annotation keywords, property initializers as defaults. You can find examples for these features in the test examples.

Usage

Programmatic use

import { resolve } from 'path'
import * as TJS from '@lemon-clown/typescript-json-schema'

// optionally pass argument to schema generator
const settings: TJS.PartialArgs = {
  ref: false,
  required: true,
}

// optionally pass ts compiler options
const compilerOptions: TJS.CompilerOptions = {
  strictNullChecks: true
}

// optionally pass a base path
const basePath = './my-dir'

const program = TJS.getProgramFromFiles([resolve('my-file.ts')], compilerOptions, basePath)

// We can either get the schema for one file and one type...
const schema = TJS.generateSchema(program, 'MyType', settings)


// ... or a generator that lets us incrementally get more schemas

const generator = TJS.buildGenerator(program, settings)

// all symbols
const symbols = generator.getUserSymbols()

// Get symbols for different types from generator.
generator.getSchemaForSymbol('MyType')
generator.getSchemaForSymbol('AnotherType')
// In larger projects type names may not be unique,
// while unique names may be enabled.
const settings: TJS.PartialArgs = {
  uniqueNames: true
}

const generator = TJS.buildGenerator(program, settings)

// A list of all types of a given name can then be retrieved.
const symbolList = generator.getSymbols('MyType')

// Choose the appropriate type, and continue with the symbol's unique name.
generator.getSchemaForSymbol(symbolList[1].name)

// Also it is possible to get a list of all symbols.
const fullSymbolList = generator.getSymbols()

getSymbols('<SymbolName>') and getSymbols() return an array of SymbolRef, which is of the following format:

type SymbolRef = {
  name: string
  typeName: string
  fullyQualifiedName: string
  symbol: ts.Symbol
}

getUserSymbols and getMainFileSymbols return an array of string.

Annotations

The schema generator converts annotations to JSON schema properties.

For example

export interface Shape {
  /**
   * The size of the shape.
   *
   * @minimum 0
   * @TJS-type integer
   */
  size: number
}

will be translated to

{
  "$ref": "#/definitions/Shape",
  "$schema": "http://json-schema.org/draft-07/schema#",
  "definitions": {
    "Shape": {
      "properties": {
        "size": {
          "description": "The size of the shape.",
          "minimum": 0,
          "type": "integer"
        }
      },
      "type": "object"
    }
  }
}

Note that we needed to use @TJS-type instead of just @type because of an issue with the typescript compiler.

Background

Inspired and builds upon Typson, but typescript-json-schema is compatible with more recent Typescript versions. Also, since it uses the Typescript compiler internally, more advanced scenarios are possible. If you are looking for a library that uses the AST instead of the type hierarchy and therefore better support for type aliases, have a look at vega/ts-json-schema-generator.
