RAML to HTML documentation generator


A simple RAML to HTML documentation generator, written for Node.js. Check raml2md for a RAML to Markdown generator.

npm i -g raml2html
raml2html --help
raml2html example.raml > example.html
raml2html -i example.raml -o example.html
raml2html -s -i example.raml -o example.html
raml2html -t custom-template.handlebars -r custom-resource.handlebars -m custom-item.handlebars -i example.raml -o example.html

HTTPS If the generated file will be hosted on a https domain, you will need to run raml2html with the -s option so the external dependancies will also use https links.

var raml2html = require('raml2html');
// Using the default templates:
// source can either be a filename, url, file contents (string) or parsed RAML object
var config = raml2html.getDefaultConfig(https); // https is a boolean, true means https links will be used instead of http
raml2html.render(source, config, onSuccess, onError);
// Using your own templates:
// - config should be an object with at least an `template` property (a string containing the main template)
// - config can also include `helpers` and `partials`
// - config can also include a boolean `https` (default is false)
// - config can also include a function `processOutput` which will receive the raw rendered HTML, onSuccess and onError callbacks
// - the config object will be accessible from your handlebars templates
raml2html.render(source, config, onSuccess, onError);

See also example/script.js for an example of using raml2html as a library.

You can use the latest raml2html directly from Gulp, or use the third party gulp-raml2html plugin (which uses an outdated version of raml2html).

There's a third party Grunt plugin at https://www.npmjs.org/package/grunt-raml2html.

If you get parsing errors, please do not report them to raml2html: it doesn't do the actual RAML parsing. Review the error and fix your RAML file, or open a new issue at raml-js-parser.

This project is still a work in progress, but the output is very usable already (and is in fact used by multiple companies including Google). Still left to do, in no particular order:

  • Template options (for example to turn off side bar navigation)
  • Finish HTML output, currently there's still some stuff missing (like securedBy)
