Build the image

This is only required if you want to try new changes in the Dockerfile of this project.

docker build -t local-openapi-diff .

You can replace the local image name local-openapi-diff by any name of your choice.

Run an instance

In this example the $(pwd)/core/src/test/resources directory is mounted in the /specs directory of the container in readonly mode (ro).

docker run --rm -t \
  -v $(pwd)/core/src/test/resources:/specs:ro \
  openapitools/openapi-diff:latest /specs/path_1.yaml /specs/path_2.yaml

The remote name openapitools/openapi-diff can be replaced with local-openapi-diff or the name you gave to your local image.

Usage

openapi-diff can read OpenAPI specs from JSON files or HTTP URLs.

Direct Invocation

public class Main {
    public static final String OPENAPI_DOC1 = "petstore_v3_1.json";
    public static final String OPENAPI_DOC2 = "petstore_v2_2.yaml";
        
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        ChangedOpenApi diff = OpenApiCompare.fromLocations(OPENAPI_DOC1, OPENAPI_DOC2);

        //...
    }
}

Render difference


HTML

String html = new HtmlRender("Changelog",
        "http://deepoove.com/swagger-diff/stylesheets/demo.css")
                .render(diff);

try {
    FileWriter fw = new FileWriter(
            "testNewApi.html");
    fw.write(html);
    fw.close();

} catch (IOException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
}

Markdown

String render = new MarkdownRender().render(diff);
try {
    FileWriter fw = new FileWriter(
            "testDiff.md");
    fw.write(render);
    fw.close();
    
} catch (IOException e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
}

Extensions

This project uses Java Service Provider Inteface (SPI) so additional extensions can be added.

To build your own extension, you simply need to create a src/main/resources/META-INF/services/org.openapitools.openapidiff.core.compare.ExtensionDiff file with the full classname of your implementation. Your class must also implement the org.openapitools.openapidiff.core.compare.ExtensionDiff interface. Then, including your library with the openapi-diff module will cause it to be triggered automatically.
