PhyloPic API Documentation

This project is for documenting the planned Application Programming Interface for the next version of PhyloPic. The primary file is openapi.yaml, which is written using the OpenAPI Specification.

An HTML version of the documentation is currently being hosted here.

Getting started


To do development work, you will likely require yarn. Installation instructions are here.

Once yarn is installed, go to the project folder and run:


Running the tests

To test that openapi.yaml is valid, run:

yarn test

Generating documentation

To generate documentation as an HTML web page, run:
