  1. This package is at the core of the go-openapi suite of packages and code generator
  2. There is a spec loading package to fetch specs as JSON or YAML from local or remote locations
  3. There is a spec validation package built on top of it
  4. There is a spec analysis package built on top of it, to analyze, flatten, fix and merge spec documents
  • Does this library support OpenAPI 3?
