Converts a openapi-definition into a static html page
Maintainers / Contributors wanted
I'm still looking for people to help me with the bootprint project. I have found some new ambitions to make bootprint-openapi the greatest offline documentation generator for OpenAPI specifications. I have started, by releasing the current version as 1.0 to show that it's time to start using semver for versioning.
I have created a Twitter account @bootprintjs that will now be used for announcments and for gathering user feedback. I also plan to setup a blog.
But I might still need your help. I am, for example, certain, that there are greater designers out there than me and I feel that some parts of bootprint-openapi need a redesign. So:
- If you want to start maintaining the module(s), please let me know and I'll give you push access.
- I will help you by giving pointers to code-lines that need to be changed for a given feature.
- I will try to publish new versions as fast as possible.
- I might also give you publishing-rights on npm, although that seems like a large step and I would have to be confident that you don't misuse it.
This package contains a template, partials and styles for bootprint to convert OpenAPI-Specifications into a static HTML-page.
This package was formerly known as
bootprint-swagger and has been renamed, because
Swagger-Specification has been renamed to OpenAPI-Specification
In order to use
bootprint-openapi from the command line
you have to install
npm install -g bootprintnpm install -g bootprint-openapi
Check this out: You can now try out the new bootprint-openapi playground. Just paste a OpenAPI-specification and make it readable.
bootprint openapi http://petstore.swagger.io/v2/swagger.json target
The directory "target" should now contain a file
main.css which contain a readable
form of the Swagger-Petstore-Example.
For details about command line parameters, please refer to the documentation of Bootprint
bootprint-openapi is just a template-module for
bootprint. That means, it contains
LessCss-file, Handlebars-partials and a
preprocessor that converts
an OpenAPI-Specification into the JSON actually needed by the templates.
Create a single file.
If you want to have a single HTML-file, not one HTML and one CSS, you can use substack's html-inline package to generate a self-cotnained file:
npm -g install html-inline html-inline target/index.html
// Load bootprint// Load bootprint-swagger// Customize configuration, override any options// Specify build source and target// Generate swagger-documentation into "target" directory
The API of
bootprint-openapi consists of Handlebars-partials that can be overridden and
LessCss-Definitions, that can be adapted.
About 26 Handlebars partials are used to render this openapi-html-page. The following documentation is not final yet and there are a lot of partials without real documentation, but you may already have a look at it: The partials documentation describes the partials in use and the order in which they are called. You can override these partials in a Bootprint configuration file.
bootprint-openapi is published under the MIT-license.
