    apiDoc to Interfaces

    Command line tool that generates typescript interfaces from your apiDoc documentation.

    Getting Started


    To use this tool install it using npm:

    $ npm install apidoc2ts -g


    Get help on how to use the tool:

    $ apidoc2ts --help

    Generating interfaces from your apiDoc:

    $ apidoc2ts --source ./doc/api_data.json --output generated --name interfaces.ts


    Required flags:

    • -s --source - path to the api_data.json file from apiDoc
    • -o --output - path to the output folder (default ./)
    • -n --name - name for the file with generated interfaces

    Additional flags:

    • -g --gropuing = (single|url):
      • single - create one file with all interfaces in it (not the best idea)
      • url - create multiple folders with interfaces corresponding to URL structure
    • -v --version = (last|all) - which versions should be used
      • last - interfaces are generated only for the latest versions
      • all - interfaces are generated for all version and older version interfaces has a postfix _vx.x.x
    • -t --custom-types - list of custom types that should not be replaced with strings
    • -w --whitelist - list of endpoints names which should be processed, the rest of endpoints will be ignored
    • -e --parse-examples - if example requests/responses should be parsed if no parameters are specified

    Prefixes/postfixes for top-level interfaces names:

    • --static-prefix - prefix for all interfaces names
    • --static-postfix - postfix for all interfaces names
    • --request-prefix - prefix for a request interface name
    • --request-postfix - postfix for a request interface name
    • --response-prefix - prefix for a response interface name
    • --response-postfix - postfix for a response interface name
    • --error-prefix - prefix for an error interface name
    • --error-postfix - postfix for an error interface name

    Config file

    The tool will look for a default config file called apidoc2ts.config.js in a current folder and combine flags from the file with a flags specified in command line. Note that command line flags override config file flags and all flags in config file should be in a camelCase.

    Also you can specify a path to the config file which must contain all required flags:

    -c --config - path to the config file

    Example of the config file:

    module.exports = {
        source: "source",
        name: "name.ts",
        output: "output",
        staticPrefix: "I",
        customTypes: ["type1", "type2"]


    We appreciate any contribution to this project whether it is a bug report, feature request or some improvement and have a small guide for that.
