swagger-js-codegen

A Swagger codegen for JavaScript

Swagger to JS & Typescript Codegen

This package generates a nodejs or angularjs class from a swagger specification file. The code is generated using mustache templates and is quality checked by jshint and beautified by js-beautify.

The typescript generator is based on superagent and can be used for both nodejs and the browser via browserify/webpack.

npm install swagger-js-codegen
var fs = require('fs');
var CodeGen = require('swagger-js-codegen').CodeGen;
 
var file = 'swagger/spec.json';
var swagger = JSON.parse(fs.readFileSync(file, 'UTF-8'));
var nodejsSourceCode = CodeGen.getNodeCode({ className: 'Test', swagger: swagger });
var angularjsSourceCode = CodeGen.getAngularCode({ className: 'Test', swagger: swagger });
var tsSourceCode = CodeGen.getTypescriptCode({ className: 'Test', swagger: swagger, imports: ['../../typings/tsd.d.ts'] });
console.log(nodejsSourceCode);
console.log(angularjsSourceCode);
console.log(tsSourceCode);
var source = CodeGen.getCustomCode({
    moduleName: 'Test',
    className: 'Test',
    swagger: swaggerSpec,
    template: {
        class: fs.readFileSync('my-class.mustache', 'utf-8'),
        method: fs.readFileSync('my-method.mustache', 'utf-8')
    }
});

In addition to the common options listed below, getCustomCode() requires a template field:

template: { class: "...", method: "..." }

getAngularCode(), getNodeCode(), and getCustomCode() each support the following options:

You can also pass in your own variables for the mustache templates by adding a mustache object:

var source = CodeGen.getCustomCode({
    ...
    mustache: {
      foo: 'bar',
      app_build_id: env.BUILD_ID,
      app_version: pkg.version
    }
});

Some proxies and application servers inject HTTP headers into the requests. Server-side code may use these fields, but they are not required in the client API.

eg: https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/go/requests#Go_Request_headers

  /locations:
    get:
      parameters:
      name: X-AppEngine-Country
        in: header
        x-proxy-header: true
        type: string
        description: Provided by AppEngine eg - US, AU, GB
      name: country
        in: query
        type: string
        description: |
          2 character country code.
          If not specified, will default to the country provided in the X-AppEngine-Country header
      ...

There is a grunt task that enables you to integrate the code generation in your development pipeline. This is extremely convenient if your application is using APIs which are documented/specified in the swagger format.

And example of gulp task is available here.

The CellStore project.

28.io is using this project to generate their nodejs and angularjs language bindings.
