Swagger for Typescript-rest

npm version Build Status Coverage Status Known Vulnerabilities

This is a tool to generate swagger files from a typescript-rest project.

Table of Contents

Installation

npm install typescript-rest-swagger -g

Usage

swaggerGen -c ./swaggerConfig.json

Where the swaggerConfig.json file, contains settings about the swagger generation. For example:

{
    "swagger": {
        "outputDirectory": "./dist",
        "entryFile": "./tests/data/apis.ts"
    }
}

Swagger Decorators

The documentation will be generated consulting all typescript-rest decorators present on your code. However, there are some additional informations that can be provided, only with documentation purposes, through some other decorators present into this library.

Some examples:

import {Path, Accept, GET} from 'typescript-rest';
import {Tags} from 'typescript-rest-swagger';
 
@Path('mypath')
export class MyService {
    @GET
    @Tags('adminMethod', 'otheTag')
    @Accept('text/html')
    test( ): string {
        return 'OK';
    }
 
    @GET
    @Path('secondpath')
    test2( @QueryParam('testParam')test?: string ): Person {
        return {name: 'OK'};
    }
}

It is also important to observe that all JsDoc provided on your methods, classes, and parameters is outputed into the generated swagger file:

@Accept('text/plain')
@Path('mypath')
export class MyService {
    /**
     * This description will be used to describe the get operation of path '/mypath' on the generated swagger
     * @param test And this will describe the parameter test of this same operation
     */
    @GET
    @Path('secondpath')
    test2( @QueryParam('testParam')test?: string ): Person {
        return {name: 'OK'};
    }
}

These are the available swagger decorators, provided by typescript-rest-swagger:

@Response

A decorator to document the responses that a given service method can return. It is used to generate documentation for the REST service.

interface MyError {
   message: string
}
 
@Path('people')
class PeopleService {
  @Response<string>(200, 'Retrieve a list of people.')
  @Response<MyError>(401, 'The user is unauthorized.', {message: 'The user is not authorized to access this operation.'})
  @GET
  getPeople(@Param('name') name: string) {
     // ...
  }
}

A Default response is already created in swagger documentation from the method return analisys. So any response declared through this decorator is an additional response created.

@Example

Used to provide an example of method return to be added into the method response section of the generated documentation for this method.

@Path('people')
class PeopleService {
  @Example<Array<Person>>([{
    name: 'Joe'
  }])
  @GET
  getPeople(@Param('name') name: string): Person[] {
     // ...
  }
}

@Tags

Add tags for a given method on generated swagger documentation.

@Path('people')
class PeopleService {
  @Tags('adiministrative', 'department1')
  @GET
  getPeople(@Param('name') name: string) {
     // ...
  }
}

@Security

Add a security constraint to method generated docs, referencing the security name from securityDefinitions. @Security can be used at the controller and method level; if defined on both, method security overwrites controller security. Multiple security schemes may be specified to require all of them.

@Path('people')
class PeopleService {
  @Security('api_key')
  @GET
  getPeople(@Param('name') name: string) {
     // ...
  }
}

@Produces

Document the produces property in generated swagger docs

@Path('people')
@Produces('text/html')
class PeopleService {
  @GET
  getPeople(@Param('name') name: string) {
     // ...
  }
}

A Default produces is already created in swagger documentation from the method return analisys. You can use this decorator to override this default produces.

@IsInt, @IsLong, @IsFloat, @IsDouble

Document the type of a number property or parameter in generated swagger docs. If no decorator is present, the number type defaults to double format.

class Person {
    @IsInt id: number;
}
 
@Path('people')
class PeopleService {
    @Path(':id')
    @GET
    getById(@PathParam('id') @IsLong id: number) {
        // ...
    }
}

Because decorators don't work on type and interface properties, this can also be specified as a JSDoc tag.

interface Person {
    /**
     * The person's id
     * @IsInt
     */
    id: number;
}

SwaggerConfig.json

The swagger config file supports the following properties:

Property Type Description
basePath string Base API path; e.g. the 'v1' in https://myapi.com/v1
consumes [string] Default consumes property for the entire API
description string API description; defaults to npm package description
entryFile string The entry point to your API
host string The hostname to be informed in the generated swagger file
license string API license number; defaults to npm package license
name string API name; defaults to npm package name
outputDirectory string Where to write the generated swagger file
produces [string] Default produces property for the entire API
version string API version number; defaults to npm package version
yaml boolean Generates the output also as an yaml file
spec any Extend generated swagger spec with this object. Note that generated properties will always take precedence over what get specified here
securityDefinitions *SecurityDefinition Security Definitions Object. A declaration of the security schemes available to be used in the specification. This does not enforce the security schemes on the operations and only serves to provide the relevant details for each scheme.
collectionFormat string Default collectionFormat property for the entire API. Possible values are csv, ssv, tsv, pipes, multi. If not specified, Swagger defaults to csv.

Where the SecurityDefinition contract is defined as:

{
    [namestring]{
        typestring;
        name?: string;
        authorizationUrl?: string;
        tokenUrl?: string;
        flow?: string;
        in?: string;
        scopes?: { [scopeNamestring]string; }
    }
}

See an example:

{
    "swagger": {
        "outputDirectory": "./dist",
        "entryFile": "./tests/data/apis.ts",
        "host": "localhost:3000",
        "version": "1.0",
        "name": "Typescript-rest Test API",
        "description": "a description",
        "license": "MIT",
        "basePath": "/v1",
        "securityDefinitions": {
            "api_key": {
                "type": "apiKey",
                "name": "access_token",
                "in": "query"
            }
        }
    }
}
