    Swagger Snippet

    Generates code snippets for given Swagger / Open API specification files.

    This package takes as input a Swagger 2.0 / OpenAPI v3.0.x specification. It translates the specification into an HTTP Archive 1.2 request object. It uses the HTTP Snippet library to generate code snippets for every API endpoint (URL path + HTTP method) defined in the specification in various languages & tools (cURL, Node, Python, Ruby, Java, Go, C#...).


    npm i swagger-snippet

    Build Swagger Snippet (for use in browser)

    Clone the Swagger Snippet repository. Install required dependencies:

    npm i

    Build a minified version of Swagger Snippet (swaggersnippet.min.js):

    npm run build


    As a module

    const SwaggerSnippet = require('swagger-snippet')
    // define input:
    const swagger = ... // a Swagger / Open API specification
    const targets = ['node_unirest', 'c'] // array of targets for code snippets. See list below...
    try {
      // either, get snippets for ALL endpoints:
      const results = SwaggerSnippet.getSwaggerSnippets(swagger, targets) // results is now array of snippets, see "Output" below.
      // ...or, get snippets for a single endpoint:
      const results2 = SwaggerSnippet.getEndpointSnippets(swagger, '/users/{user-id}/relationship', 'get', targets)
    } catch (err) {
      // do something with potential errors...

    Within the browser

    Include the swaggersnippet.min.js file created after building the the library (see above) in your HTML page:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/swaggersnippet.min.js"></script>

    Use Swagger Snippet, which now defines the global variable SwaggerSnippet.


    The output for every endpoint is an object, containing the method, url, a human-readable description, and the corresponding resource - all of these values stem from the specification. In addition, within the snippets list, an object containing a code snippet for every chosen target is provided. As of version 0.4.0, the snippets include exemplary payload data.

    If getSwaggerSnippets is used, an array of the above described objects is returned.

    For example:

        "method": "GET",
        "url": "{user-id}/relationship",
        "description": "Get information about a relationship to another user.",
        "resource": "relationship",
        "snippets": [
            "id": "node",
            "title": "Node + Native",
            "content": "var http = require(\"https\");\n\nvar options = {..."

    • c_libcurl (default)
    • csharp_restsharp (default)
    • go_native (default)
    • java_okhttp
    • java_unirest (default)
    • javascript_jquery
    • javascript_xhr (default)
    • node_native (default)
    • node_request
    • node_unirest
    • objc_nsurlsession (default)
    • ocaml_cohttp (default)
    • php_curl (default)
    • php_http1
    • php_http2
    • python_python3 (default)

    • ruby_native (default)
    • shell_curl (default)
    • shell_httpie

    If only the language is provided (e.g., c), the default library will be selected.
