    This package contains the generator to create your own service module using a OpenAPI specification. This generator is based on the OpenAPI Tools generator for OpenAPI and adds some additional code for convenience to better integrate with the SAP Cloud SDK.


    $ npm install @sap-cloud-sdk/openapi-generator

    To run the CLI locally, compile and link the package.

    $ yarn install
    $ yarn compile
    $ npm link
    $ openapi-generator help

    Usage (CLI)

    Generate OpenAPI client(s), that use the connectivity features of the SAP Cloud SDK for JavaScript/TypeScript.

    Usage: openapi-generator --input <input> --outputDir <outputDirectory>
          --help                  Show help                                [boolean]
          --version               Show version number                      [boolean]
      -i, --input                 Specify the path to the directory or file
                                  containing the OpenAPI service definition(s) to
                                  generate clients for. Accepts Swagger and OpenAPI
                                  definitions as YAML and JSON files. Throws an
                                  error if the path does not exist.
                                                                 [string] [required]
      -o, --outputDir             Specify the path to the directory to generate the
                                  client(s) in. Each client is generated into a
                                  subdirectory within the given output directory.
                                  Creates the directory if it does not exist.
                                  Customize subdirectory naming through
                                  `--optionsPerService`.         [string] [required]
      -t, --transpile             Transpile the generated TypeScript code. When
                                  enabled a default `tsconfig.json` will be
                                  generated and used. It emits `.js`, ``,
                                  `.d.ts` and `` files. To configure
                                  transpilation set `--tsconfig`.
                                                          [boolean] [default: false]
          --include               Include files matching the given glob into the
                                  root of each generated client directory.  [string]
          --overwrite             Allow to overwrite files, that already exist. This
                                  is useful, when running the generation regularly.
                                                          [boolean] [default: false]
          --clearOutputDir        Remove all files in the output directory before
                                  generation. Be cautious when using this option, as
                                  it really removes EVERYTHING in the output
                                  directory.              [boolean] [default: false]
          --skipValidation        By default, the generation fails, when there are
                                  duplicate or invalid names for operations and/or
                                  path parameters after transforming them to camel
                                  case. Set this to true to enable unique and valid
                                  name generation. The names will then be generated
                                  by appending numbers and prepending prefixes.
                                                          [boolean] [default: false]
          --tsConfig              Replace the default `tsconfig.json` by passing a
                                  path to a custom config. By default, a
                                  `tsconfig.json` is only generated, when
                                  transpilation is enabled (`--transpile`). If a
                                  directory is passed, a `tsconfig.json` file is
                                  read from this directory.                 [string]
          --packageJson           When enabled, a `package.json`, that specifies
                                  dependencies and scripts for transpilation and
                                  documentation generation is generated.
                                                          [boolean] [default: false]
          --licenseInPackageJson  License to be used on the generated package.json.
                                  Only considered if 'packageJson' is enabled.
      -v, --verbose               Turn on verbose logging.[boolean] [default: false]
          --optionsPerService     Set the path to a file containing the options per
                                  service. The configuration allows to set a
                                  `directoryName` and `packageName` for every
                                  service, identified by the path to the original
                                  file. It also makes sure that names do not change
                                  between generator runs. If a directory is passed,
                                  a `options-per-service.json` file is read/created
                                  in this directory.                        [string]
      -c, --config                Set the path to a file containing the options for
                                  generation instead of setting the options on the
                                  command line. When combining the `config` option
                                  with other options on the command line, the
                                  command line options take precedence. If a
                                  directory is passed, a `config.json` file is read
                                  from this directory.                      [string]

    Usage (programmatically)

    import { generate } from '@sap-cloud-sdk/openapi-generator';
    // initialize generator options based on what you want to do
    // note that inputDir and outputDir are mandatory
    const options: GeneratorOptions = {
      inputDir: 'path/to/inputDir',
      outputDir: 'path/to/outputDir'
    // generates the files and writes them to the outputDir
    await generate(options);
