openapi-zod-client

Screenshot 2022-11-12 at 18 52 25

Generates a zodios (typescript http client with zod validation) from a (json/yaml) OpenAPI spec (or just use the generated schemas/endpoints/etc !)

  • can be used programmatically (do w/e you want with the computed schemas/endpoints)

  • or used as a CLI (generates a prettier .ts file with deduplicated variables when pointing to the same schema/$ref)

  • client typesafety using zodios

  • tested (using vitest) against official OpenAPI specs samples

Why this exists

sometimes you don't have control on your API, maybe you need to consume APIs from other teams (who might each use a different language/framework), you only have their Open API spec as source of truth, then this might help 😇

you could use openapi-zod-client to automate the API integration part (doesn't matter if you consume it in your front or back-end, zodios is agnostic) on your CI and just import the generated api client

Comparison vs tRPC etc

please just use tRPC or alternatives (zodios is actually a full-featured solution and not just an api client, ts-rest looks cool as well) if you do have control on your API/back-end

Usage

with local install:

  • pnpm i -D openapi-zod-client
  • pnpm openapi-zod-client "./input/file.json" -o "./output/client.ts"

or directly (no install)

  • pnpx openapi-zod-client "./input/file.yaml" -o "./output/client.ts"

CLI

openapi-zod-client/1.4.2

Usage:
  $ openapi-zod-client <input>

Commands:
  <input>  path/url to OpenAPI/Swagger document as json/yaml

For more info, run any command with the `--help` flag:
  $ openapi-zod-client --help

Options:
  -o, --output <path>       Output path for the zodios api client ts file (defaults to `<input>.client.ts`)
  -t, --template <path>     Template path for the handlebars template that will be used to generate the output
  -p, --prettier <path>     Prettier config path that will be used to format the output client file
  -b, --base-url <url>      Base url for the api
  -a, --with-alias          With alias as api client methods
  --error-expr <expr>       Pass an expression to determine if a response status is an error
  --success-expr <expr>     Pass an expression to determine which response status is the main success status
  --media-type-expr <expr>  Pass an expression to determine which response content should be allowed
  --export-schemas          When true, will export all `#/components/schemas`
  --implicit-required       When true, will make all properties of an object required by default (rather than the current opposite), unless an explicitly `required` array is set
  --with-deprecated         when true, will keep deprecated endpoints in the api output
  --group-strategy          groups endpoints by a given strategy, possible values are: 'none' | 'tag' | 'method' | 'tag-file' | 'method-file'
  --complexity-threshold    schema complexity threshold to determine which one (using less than `<` operator) should be assigned to a variable
  --default-status          when defined as `auto-correct`, will automatically use `default` as fallback for `response` when no status code was declared
  -v, --version             Display version number
  -h, --help                Display this message

Customization

You can pass a custom handlebars template and/or a custom prettier config with something like:

pnpm openapi-zod-client ./example/petstore.yaml -o ./example/petstore-schemas.ts -t ./example/schemas-only.hbs -p ./example/prettier-custom.json --export-schemas, there is an example of the output here

When using the CLI

You can pass an expression that will be safely evaluted (thanks to whence) and works like validateStatus from axios to determine which OpenAPI ResponseItem should be picked as the main one for the ZodiosEndpoint["response"] and which ones will be added to the ZodiosEndpoint["errors"] array.

Exemple: --success-expr "status >= 200 && status < 300"

Tips

  • You can omit the -o (output path) argument if you want and it will default to the input path with a .ts extension: pnpm openapi-zod-client ./input.yaml will generate a ./input.yaml.ts file

  • Since internally we're using swagger-parser, you should be able to use an URL as input like this: pnpx openapi-zod-client https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OAI/OpenAPI-Specification/main/examples/v3.0/petstore.yaml -o ./petstore.ts

  • Also, multiple-files-documents ($ref pointing to another file) should work out-of-the-box as well, but if it doesn't, maybe dereferencing your document before passing it to openapi-zod-client could help

TODO

  • handle OA prefixItems -> output z.tuple
  • rm unused (=never referenced) variables from output

Caveats

NOT tested/expected to work with OpenAPI before v3, please migrate your specs to v3+ if you want to use this

Contributing:

  • pnpm i && pnpm gen

if you fix an edge case please make a dedicated minimal reproduction test in the tests folder so that it doesn't break in future versions
