OpenDocumenter is a automatic documentation generator for OpenAPI v3 schemas. Simply provide your schema file in JSON or YAML, then sit back and enjoy the documentation.

Powered by nuxt.js and swagger-parser.

Example

For a live preview of documentation generated with OpenDocumenter you can view our demo documentation "Quisque API". This example uses lorem-ipsum for all content to provide placeholder text used to demonstrate the form of a document without relying on meaningful content.

Installation

> npm install -g opendocumenter

or

> yarn global add opendocumenter

Usage

> opendocumenter --help

  OpenDocumenter is a automatic documentation generator for OpenAPI v3 schemas.
  Simply provide your schema file in JSON or YAML, then sit back and enjoy the documentation.

  Powered by nuxt.js and swagger-parser.

  Usage:

    opendocumenter --schema=<file> --output=<dir>

  Arguments:

    --schema=<file>    (required) The OpenAPI 3 format file to generate documentation from.
    --output=<dir>     (required) The output destination directory.
    --config=<file>    A configuration file to load advanced options from.

Configuration

OpenDocumenter can be configured using a .json file stored alongside your schema file.

Merge From Directory

The mergeFromDirectory parameter allows you to specify a directory that will be copied over the base template before building. This allows customization of any part of OpenDocumenter to suit your needs.

{
  "mergeFromDirectory": "./overrides"
}

Any part of the OpenDocumenter vue source (see: ./src) can be overridden, just ensure to follow the same directory structure!

overrides
 |- assets
 | '- theme.less
 '- components
   |- DocHeader.vue
   '- DocEntry.vue

'Generated Using' Footer

By default, a small 'Generated Using' message is included on the footer of the generated documentation. Although we'd love you to keep it, you can disable this by setting the disableGeneratedUsingFooter parameter to true.

{
  "disableGeneratedUsingFooter": true
}

Aborting on Invalid Schema

OpenDocumenter is capable of generating documentation for OpenAPI schemas that don't match the OpenAPI Specification entirely. When generating we attempt to validate your schema, display any validation warnings, and then continue to generate. If you would like the generation to abort when a schema is invalid you can set the abortOnInvalidSchema parameter to true.

{
  "abortOnInvalidSchema": true
}

Shields / Badges

Various shields are included in the generated documentation header, such as the API version. Additional shields can be added using the shields parameter. Each shield is an object containing either the url key, or a combination of left, right and color. The translate parameter can be used (left, right, both) to run the text through the internationalization handler. An optional link can provided with the href parameter. All shields are generated using shields.io unless a URL is provided.

{
  "shields": [
    { "url": "https://img.shields.io/badge/test-1.2.3--test-blue" },
    { "left": "test", "right": "1.2.3-test", "color": "blue" },
    {
      "left": "test",
      "right": "1.2.3-test",
      "color": "blue",
      "href": "https://www.example.com"
    }
  ]
}

Build: Modern Mode

By default, the build-chain produces "Modern Mode" output, shipping native ES2015 code to modern browsers that support it, with auto fallback to a legacy bundle. This can be turned off by setting vueModernMode parameter, afterwards the build-chain produces "Legacy" output for older browser compatibility.

{
  "vueModernMode": false
}

Build: Reporting

You can control the reporting output from the build-chain with the vueReport parameter. This defaults to none and can be set to json, html or both. With this enabled the build-chain will output a report file describing the webpack bundle.

{
  "vueReport": "html"
}

Internationalization

Most of the documentation text is taken directly from the OpenAPI schema file, however, there are various strings throughout the project that cannot be stored within the schema file. All of these strings are customizable by editing the i18n parameter.

{
  "i18n": {
    "API_SDK_DOCUMENTATION": "API and SDK Documentation",
    "VERSION": "version",
    "NO_INDEPTH_DOCS_AVAILABLE_ENDPOINT": "No in-depth API documentation is available for this endpoint.",
    "NO_INDEPTH_DOCS_AVAILABLE_TAG": "No in-depth API documentation is available for this section.",
    "CLICK_TO_COPY": "click to copy",
    "COPIED": "copied",
    "REQUEST_BODY": "Request Body",
    "REQUEST_RESPONSES": "Request Responses",
    "DEFINITION": "Definition",
    "DEFINITIONS": "Definitions",
    "SERVER": "Server",
    "LANGUAGE": "Language",
    "GENERATED_USING": "Generated using OpenDocumenter by $ourOpenCode",
    "HAVE_ANY_QUESTIONS_CONTACT": "Have any questions? Please contact",
    "US": "us",
    "OR": "or",
    "VIA_EMAIL": "via email",
    "VIA_OUR_WEBSITE": "via our website",
    "TERMS_OF_SERVICE": "Terms of Service",
    "SEND_US_AN_EMAIL": "Send us an email",
    "VISIT_OUR_WEBSITE": "Visit our website",
    "EXTERNAL_DOCUMENTATION": "External Documentation",
    "DOCUMENTATION": "Documentation"
  }
}

There is a single end-user visible string that isn't configurable in this config. The "Loading Documentation..." text in the page title, briefly shown during page load, is only configurable using the "Merge From Directory" parameter.
