    🕰️ Looking for the older version of Swagger Editor? Refer to the 2.x branch.

    Swagger Editor lets you edit Swagger API specifications in YAML inside your browser and to preview documentations in real time. Valid Swagger JSON descriptions can then be generated and used with the full Swagger tooling (code generation, documentation, etc).

    As a brand new version, written from the ground up, there are some known issues and unimplemented features. Check out the Known Issues section for more details.

    This repository publishes to two different NPM modules:

    • swagger-editor is a traditional npm module intended for use in single-page applications that are capable of resolving dependencies (via Webpack, Browserify, etc).
    • swagger-editor-dist is a dependency-free module that includes everything you need to serve Swagger Editor in a server-side project, or a web project that can't resolve npm module dependencies.

    If you're building a single-page application, using swagger-editor is strongly recommended, since swagger-editor-dist is significantly larger.

    For the older version of swagger-editor, refer to the 2.x branch.

    Running locally

    • NPM >=6.12.x

    Generally, we recommend the following guidelines from Node.js Releases to only use Active LTS or Maintenance LTS releases.

    Current Node.js:

    • Node.js 16.x
    • NPM >=7.10.x

    Current Node.js Active LTS:

    • Node.js 14.x
    • NPM >=6.12.x

    Current Node.js Maintenance LTS:

    • Node.js >=12.4
    • NPM >=6.12.x

    If you have Node.js and npm installed, you can run npm start to spin up a static server.

    Otherwise, you can open index.html directly from your filesystem in your browser.

    If you'd like to make code changes to Swagger Editor, you can start up a Webpack hot-reloading dev server via npm run dev.

    Browser support

    Swagger Editor works in the latest versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge.

    Known Issues

    To help with the migration, here are the currently known issues with 3.X. This list will update regularly, and will not include features that were not implemented in previous versions.


    Running the image from DockerHub

    There is a docker image published in DockerHub.

    To use this, run the following:

    docker pull swaggerapi/swagger-editor
    docker run -d -p 80:8080 swaggerapi/swagger-editor

    This will run Swagger Editor (in detached mode) on port 80 on your machine, so you can open it by navigating to http://localhost in your browser.

    • You can provide your own json or yaml definition file on your host
    docker run -d -p 80:8080 -v $(pwd):/tmp -e SWAGGER_FILE=/tmp/swagger.json swaggerapi/swagger-editor
    • You can provide a API document from your local machine — for example, if you have a file at ./bar/swagger.json:
    docker run -d -p 80:8080 -e URL=/foo/swagger.json -v /bar:/usr/share/nginx/html/foo swaggerapi/swagger-editor
    • You can specify a different base url for accessing the application - for example if you want the application to be available at http://localhost/swagger-editor/:
    docker run -d -p 80:8080 -e BASE_URL=/swagger-editor swaggerapi/swagger-editor

    Building and running an image locally

    To build and run a docker image with the code checked out on your machine, run the following from the root directory of the project:

    # Install npm packages (if needed)
    npm install
    # Build the app
    npm run build
    # Build an image
    docker build -t swagger-editor .
    # Run the container
    docker run -d -p 80:8080 swagger-editor

    You can then view the app by navigating to http://localhost in your browser.
