A simple RAML to HTML documentation generator, written for Node.js, with theme support.
RAML version support
raml2html 4 and higher only support RAML 1.0 files. Please stick with raml2html 3.x for RAML 0.8 support.
npm i -g raml2html
raml2html ships with a default theme, but you can install more from NPM. For example, to render RAML to Markdown, you can install the raml2html-markdown-theme theme:
npm i -g raml2html-markdown-theme
Search NPM for the "raml2html-theme" keyword (or use this link) to find more themes.
As a command line script
raml2html --help raml2html example.raml > example.html raml2html --theme raml2html-markdown-theme example.raml > example.html raml2html --template my-custom-template.nunjucks -i example.raml -o example.html
As a library
Using the default theme, different themes, or your own Nunjucks templates
const raml2html = ;const configWithDefaultTheme = raml2html;const configForDifferentTheme = raml2html;const configWithCustomTemplate = raml2html;// source can either be a filename, url, or parsed RAML objectraml2html;
Using your own processing function, for full control over the whole rendering process
/*** config should be an object with at least an `processRamlObj` property which is a function that receives the raw RAML* object and must return a promise with the result. You can do whatever you want in this function.** You can also supply a postProcessHtml function that can for example minify the generated HTML.** You can also supply a writeOutput function that takes over writing the output (to disk for example).** You can also supply a setupNunjucks function that takes the env as its only parameter.*/raml2html;
example/script.js for multiple examples of using raml2html as a library.
You can use the raml2html directly from Gulp.

Before you report a bug
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-2.
raml2html is an open source project and your contribution is very much appreciated.
- Check for open issues or open a fresh issue to start a discussion around a feature idea or a bug.
