Genio is an easy to use code generation tool that can generate API client libraries in multiple programming languages. Genio comes with in-built support for multiple API specification formats - WSDLs, WADLs and the Google discovery format but also allows you to plug in parsers for additional specification formats. It uses a simple templating system that allows easy customization of the generated code.
- Ruby 1.9.3 or above
gem install genio
With genio installed on your local machine, run
genio <java|php|dotnet> --schema=path/to/specification [--output-path=output/directory]
With the --schema argument option, Genio will attempt to guess the specification type based on the file extension of the argument. If you follow non-standard naming convention for your files, please use the --wsdl / --wadl / --json-schema arguments instead.
Once you have generated source files with genio, you can use them in your project in conjunction with PayPal's core SDK libraries. You can take a look at the sample hello world projects and read language specific instructions here.
Genio comes with templates for the following programming languages. Support for other languages to follow soon.
- WADL (
- Google discovery format (
- WSDL (
We have plans to add the following soon
- Automatic API reference generation from spec.
- Support for JSON schema Version 4 specification.
