Swagger Demo


  • Install scala 2.9.1 and put scala in your $PATH! Scala is here:

This may work with newer versions of scala but please use 2.9.1 for this demo.

  • Get swagger-codegen and other dependencies via maven:
mvn package

Now you can start a webserver to host the api docs and the swagger-ui:

mvn jetty:run

This starts Jetty on port 8000. You can now browse to http://localhost:8000 and see the swagger ui. Of course you can't execute GET/POST methods since there's no server to handle them...

Now you can generate the objective-c client:

./bin/ src/main/scripts/ObjectiveCClientGenerator.scala http://localhost:8000/api/resources.json

You will see the client written to the client folder. You can modify the ObjectiveCClientGenerator script to change the behavior of the generator, or the templates, which live in the src/main/templates/client folder.

You can now generate the scalatra server

./bin/ src/main/scripts/ScalatraServerGenerator.scala http://localhost:8000/api/resources.json

This generates the server in the server folder. You can start the server as follows:

cd server

The server is listening on port 8080, you can update the discovery URL in the swagger-ui (jetty is still running!) and execute commands against the server.

You can add encapsulate a service class, to avoid the codegen from wiping out business logic

There is no logic in the server, so you can enable the mustache partial under // do something magic!:

{{> service_call}}

Now regenerate the server and you have real functionality:

./bin/ src/main/scripts/ScalatraServerGenerator.scala http://localhost:8000/api/resources.json

You can generate a scala client

./bin/ com.wordnik.swagger.codegen.BasicScalaGenerator http://localhost:8000/api/resources.json

Which is written to generated-files/scala per the default scala template from the codegen, here.

You can generate a server for node.js

./bin/ src/main/scripts/NodeServerGenerator.scala http://localhost:8000/api/resources.json

Which can be run as follows:

cd nodejs
npm install
node Apps/main.js

Which is now available via http://localhost:8002/api-docs.json

A real server example

You can finally generate a wordnik-api server (disable the partial from above, since I didn't write all the service methods):

./bin/ src/main/scripts/WordnikServerGenerator.scala -DfileMap=src/main/templates/wordnik-api/ http://localhost:8080/api/resources.json
