Monolithe is a Python toolset that can transform a set a specification to something else, like a sdk or a documentation.

It provides the monogen command that will transform the specification into the specified language.

The specifications are a set of files containing json data describing one object per file, its properties and their characteristics, and its position in the api hierarchy.

For more info, please read the [Monolithe Specifications Reference](doc/Specifications

In addition to the specifications, Monolithe uses a configuration that describes all the information relative to your sdk. For instance, you can set its name, the class prefix, some vanilla files, the license, and so on.

For more info, please read the [Monolithe Configuration & Vanilla Reference](doc/Configuration & Vanilla

Monolithe is not monolithic! While it provides three default transformers (Python, Go and HTML), you can create your own compatible language plugins.

For more info, please read the [Language Plugins Documentation](doc/Language

This repository contains a full small example on how to use Monolithe, located in the examples folder.

For more info, please read the [ToDoList Tutorial](doc/ToDoList


And remember, kids! You should always be using a virtualenv.

Install Monolithe by running the following command:

pip install git+

Command Line Interfaces Quick Reference

               [--generation-version GENERATION_VERSION] [-L LANGUAGE]
