An implementation of a RAML parser for Go. Compliant with RAML 0.8.


RAML is a YAML-based language that describes RESTful APIs. Together with the YAML specification, this specification provides all the information necessary to describe RESTful APIs; to create API client-code and API server-code generators; and to create API user documentation from RAML API definitions.

The raml package enables Go programs to parse RAML files and valid RAML API definitions. It was originally developed within EverythingMe.


The raml package is currently unstable and does not offer any kind of API stability guarantees.


The yaml package may be installed by running:

$ go get

Opening that same URL in a browser will present a nice introductory page containing links to the documentation, source code, and all versions available for the given package:

The actual implementation of the package is in GitHub:

Contributing to development

Typical installation process for developing purposes:

$ git clone
$ cd raml
$ go build
$ go install
$ go test


Usage is very simple:

package main

import (
	raml ""

func main() {

	fileName := "./samples/congo/api.raml"

	if apiDefinition, err := raml.ParseFile(fileName); err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("Failed parsing RAML file %s:\n  %s", fileName, err.Error())
	} else {
		fmt.Printf("Successfully parsed RAML file %s!\n\n", fileName)
