Swagger UI allows anyone — be it your development team or your end consumers — to visualize and interact with the API’s resources without having any of the implementation logic in place. It’s automatically generated from your OpenAPI (formerly known as Swagger) Specification, with the visual documentation making it easy for back end implementation and client side consumption.

This repository publishes three different NPM modules:
- swagger-ui is a traditional npm module intended for use in single-page applications that are capable of resolving dependencies (via Webpack, Browserify, etc).
- swagger-ui-dist is a dependency-free module that includes everything you need to serve Swagger UI in a server-side project, or a single-page application that can't resolve npm module dependencies.
- swagger-ui-react is Swagger UI packaged as a React component for use in React applications.
We strongly suggest that you use
swagger-ui instead of
swagger-ui-dist if you're building a single-page application, since
swagger-ui-dist is significantly larger.
If you are looking for plain ol' HTML/JS/CSS, download the latest release and copy the contents of the
/dist folder to your server.
