    💎 options


    This option needed for cases when you don't want to use the default swagger-typescript-api output structure


    How to use it:

    1. copy swagger-typescript-api templates into your place in project
    2. add --templates PATH_TO_YOUR_TEMPLATES option
    3. modify ETA templates as you like

    Eta has special directive to render template in your Eta templates - includeFile(pathToTemplate, payload)
    If you want to use some default templates from this tool you can use path prefixes: @base, @default, @modular.
    @base - path to base templates
    @default - path to single api file templates
    @modular - path to multiple api files templates
    - includeFile("@base/data-contracts.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@default/api.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@default/procedure-call.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@modular/api.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@modular/procedure-call.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@base/route-docs.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@base/route-name.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@base/route-type.eta", configuration)
    - includeFile("@base/route-types.eta", configuration)


    This option should be used in cases when you have api with one global prefix like /api
    with --module-name-index 0 Api class will have one property api
    When we change it to --module-name-index 1 then Api class have two properties fruits and vegetables


    This option will group your API operations based on their first tag - mirroring how the Swagger UI groups displayed operations
