This repository lists language templates used to power code samples in Apiary's API Documentations. Please feel free to contribute your own languages or improve the existing ones.


The HTML templates are written in Eco, which places data between <%= and %> tags and control structures between <% and %>. The following are variables and helper methods you can use when rendering the code for a request:

  • @headers - HTTP headers to be sent
  • @body - HTTP body to be sent
  • @method - HTTP method used in the request
  • @url - URL of the request, relative to the root of the server (starting with '/')
  • @apiUrl - Hostname of the API mock/proxy server (including http/https, not including trailing '/')
  • @contentType - A shorthand for @headers['content-type']
  • @helpers.escape - escape " (double-quote) characters
  • @helpers.rubyKey - helper that produces content_type out of Content-Type
  • @helpers.getContentType(headers) - same as @contentType but in form of a function you can pass any array of headers
  • @helpers.getContentTypeBrush(headers) - produces a CSS class that enabled syntax-highlighting for this language
  • @helpers.isNotEmpty (obj) - same like [].length != 0 for objects (hash maps)
